Such a pleasant way to spend our anniversary. Leaves me longing for that solitude again.

My wife and I absolutely loved the place. It was quiet, out of the way, close enough to town for shopping, but only expect antique shopping. It is a small town, very small. The host couple are the sweetest people you will ever meet, they have fantastic stories, great food and fantastic coffee. The grounds are lovely and well kept, and the rooms are quaint and spacious. The bathtub is amazing!

Hospitality at its finest. Our bed was amazing. It was the first time I have ever slept in a bed I liked more than my own! Hadn't slept on a Sleep Number bed before but now I think we just might be in the market for one. I always have pain in the mornings, but not at Longing For Home. I think the thread count on the sheets was about a million! Slept better than I have in years! Betty and Bill made us feel so at home and we thoroughly enjoyed hearing the history, spiced with Bill's wit and humor, of the area. Betty spoiled us each morning with a delicious three-course breakfast. (I need all her recipes.) The little town is full of delightful surprises and we are planning to go back for a visit as soon as possible! Next time, we hope to use the pool, porch swing and hot tub! We may even opt to stay on the "sleeping porch!" May God bless Betty and Bill. These two definitely found their niche as hosts of this wonderful B & B.

Bill and Betty were warm and friendly and allowed is the privacy we desired. We will be visiting again every chance we get.

We have stayed here several times, and each one has been delightful.. The breakfasts are delicious and bountiful, the conversations and tall tales very entertaining, and Bill and Betty go the extra mile to make sure every wish is granted.
