The Markham House is the gold standard by which we compare all other B and B's. It's always a pleasure to stay there. Lyall and Sally are the perfect hosts and the house and grounds are phenomenal.

We've stayed at the Markham house in previous years & couldn't wait to find another opportunity to visit again. We rent the Honeysuckle Cottage & it is a very special place indeed. For us, it's the Enchanted Cottage!! The cottage is comfortable, clean & cozy. Lyall & Sally are wonderful hosts who are there when you need them, but never ever intrusive. Brkfsts. are delicious & bountiful.
