Burr House was the site of a reunion of several ISU classmates. Mary Ann and Burr House made a wonderful time even better. Thanks!

This was my first experience with a B&B and Mary Ann went above and beyond my expectations! She was very accommodating and welcoming, gave great suggestions for places to grab dinner and was fun to talk with over breakfast. The Queen Anne Suite was a perfect room to stay in after driving all day long. I would highly recommend staying at the Burr House.

Really appreciated how the hostess was more than willing to accommodate our two family's. There was 10 of us total & were able to stay in only 2 rooms. We had the whole 2nd floor to our selves. Our stay was very comfortable & breakfast (French Toast ) was very Delicious!
