Wonderful Secluded Retreat

4.6 on October 22, 2014

After a few glitches and a room upgrade, we settled in to our stay and thoroughly enjoyed everything about this B&B. The history of the house is fascinating and it was fun to explore its many levels, inside and out. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. The shower in our bath was a rain shower and we also had a jacuzzi tub, which we enjoyed after a long day with lots of walking. Would definitely do this all again.

"Charmed" is how we left feeling after staying at this beautiful bed and breakfast. You must remember that it is a historic house, and as such some of the amenities are historic and take a little figuring out (temperatures, hot water, etc.), but it is maintained beautifully and after figuring out the tricks everything worked. The grounds are spectacular and the house has so many secrets to explore. The staff went above and beyond every day, we felt like family. After several strolls around the grounds on our last morning, it was hard to say goodbye.
