lovely experience

4.6 on May 31, 2014

We enjoyed the garden, the off-street parking, and the amazing quiche for breakfast. The hardware throughout the house makes the house feel like a museum. I haven't seen push button light switches since I visited my aunt's farm house in Ohio in the 60's. Apparently Restoration Hardware started out of the Victorian across the street. Be sure to ask the host about it. Speaking of which, both hosts were great. The made us feel comfortable without falling all over us. Overall a very lovely experience. Thank you!

Lovely inn, great breakfasts

I would highly recommend this B&B to everyone. The house was beautiful, the garden was beautiful, the service was outstanding, and the experience is one of a kind. Our family was very grateful for all the accommodations and hospitality we experiences. Eureka is a wonderful, hard-working town with a rich history and the people are all very kind. Donna and Bob's service at the Cornelius Inn exemplifies these characteristics and more. We plan to visit again in the near future. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

A lovely stay.
