Built as the city mansion for the Williams family whose ranches were too far from town to be convenient, the red brick Gothic Revival four story landmark termed the 'castle rising upon the hill' in 1859, is singularly unique in style and setting creating the experience of stepping into the 19th century. Meandering garden paths, Koi swimming in a moonlit fountain, Victorian sentiments, ceremony and entertainment transport our guests to that period known as the 'Tasteful Interlude'.

I have found my favourite b&b ever !!! I had two relaxing, comfortable nights in this amazing historic property. Peaceful nights sleep and a 2 minute walk (steep steps) into town. I have no complaints at all. Everything was perfect and the breakfasts....wow !!!!

IWe rented the Garrett loft rooms and they were quite comfortable. However, if you go in the colder weather, prepare for a cold bathroom. The bedrooms have a space heater, not so in the bathroom. Otherwise, everything was great!

Nice period furnishings, quiet. Close to "downtown." We felt spoiled. Hosts wrote a sweet "Happy Anniversary" note on the breakfast buffet table for us.

We had a great relaxing time. The hosts were attentive and helpful. The breakfast was excellent. Only drawback is the traffic noise from Highway 49.

This was my friends first time at a B&b and he was in awe of how beautiful this place is. So serene and private. Loved the fact that you can take your breakfast to your room and eat on the veranda if you wish. Food was very different but a nice change. We definatly recomend this place to everyone we know.
