What a find !!!

5 on March 17, 2012

I was traveling through the area to spend time with my family, found this place quite by accident and was the first guest of the new innkeepers. They were truly amazing and I didn't want to leave. The breakfast was great, we had a wonderful time together and Wendy and her husband were so attentive to us and spent a long time with us telling us about the property. You have to put this on the list of places to stay.
