A great get away. We booked one of the rooms in the School House. These rooms have balconies and if you are staying when it's not freezing, I highly recommend one of these rooms. We loved everything about the room. The breakfast was exceptional. Highly recommend this B&B!!

Beautiful inn. What makes this place special is the outstanding customer service. Rusty was super caring, considerate, and friendly. I have never felt more welcome at any other hotel I’ve stayed at. 11/10 service. Views are incredible and everything is exactly as advertised and more.

Great location for a quick getaway. The room was nice and cozy. The area was quiet and relaxing. They even provided a small bday cake for our celebration. Could ask for a better time will definitely come again
