Guest Reviews

This was a WONDERFUL location for my friends wedding. I had never stayed at a bed and breakfast but this place was heaven. So accommodating, food was amazing, and the grounds were beautiful. I would definitely come back for vacation to rest and relax, hike their trails on the 150 acres, and play with the golden retrievers Milo and Pepper :) Thanks for an awesome stay
