We stayed here over the 4th of July while we were visiting family nearby and it was so great! The owner and her staff were very friendly, the rooms were clean and large, and the food was delicious! We mentioned they may want darker curtains in rooms (we have a baby and the sunrise woke her up very early) and they were very receptive to the feedback! We plan to stay again!

Our family stayed two nights here and thoroughly enjoyed it. The rooms are large, clean and well decorated. The staff attended to our every need. We felt very comfortable lounging in the living room, reading and playing chess. While the outside of the inn needs some touching up, the interior is in great shape. The food was excellent, too.

The new owner Patty is friendly and gracious, the beds were comfortable, the breakfast was outstanding we felt like right at home. We love craftsman homes and the short walk to shopping makes this a great place to stay. I would recommend staying here and intend to soon.

It was a great first experience with a B&B...comfortable bed...good breakfast...Great hosts! It was easy to make ourservles at home. Only minor complaint is I did not get a response to a phone call when I had a quick question prior to our arrival. However, we would definitely recommend to others.

This was not the ideal time to visit McGregor as some of the businesses were closed for a shorter season. Our innkeeper was very nice and the stay was comfortable. This is a very good value also. I would stay here again if I'm every in McGregor overnight.
