We stayed one night and found Larry to be a delightful host. This is the best B & B we have every stayed at. Food was great. We had absolutely no complaints. A++

The home sits grandly on the grounds of it's corner lot surrounded by picket fence and lovely landscaping. Larry was very accommodating and welcoming as he showed us his home and made dinner recommendations. Our Room was large, filled with art, antiques, books, music and a wonderful king bed with soft as silk sheets and fluffy pillows. The ensuite bath shined in chrome appointments, the heated floor and towel rack also added luxury. We loved both the shower and the air bubble bath. Robes, soaps, and lots of amenities in or just outside our room...chocolates, water, coffee all made us feel pampered. We wish were not just traveling through to another destination because the vast library and wonderful sitting areas inside and outside the home would be the perfect getaway for us. We didn't get to enjoy the garden because of the time of year but it looked like in bloom it would be an inviting spot for the late morning or afternoon. Breakfast was full of flavors, textures and colors...more than we could have asked for. Thank you Larry for a wonderful stay at your Bed & Breakfast!

We loved our stay at this very special home. The decor is stunning, the rooms immaculate and overall experience memorable! Larry is a wonderful host. He has considered every possible guest need and provided rooms which delight in every respect. We recommend this special property without reservation. BUT, you should make a reservation...!

My sister and I stayed here for a long weekend recently and it was wonderful. Larry is a great innkeeper and made us feel so welcome. The inn is beautiful, the food is amazing and Sidwell's is a little piece of heaven. The heated floors in the private bathroom are a real treat and it is convenient to everything. Absolutely a great three days - we didn't want to leave. If you are travelling through the area don't miss this little piece of heaven. Thanks Larry for such a relaxing time. (SH in Missouri)

My wife and I stayed there last January for her birthday. The beautiful Christmas decorations were still on display. I would highly recommend this B&B. Thanks Larry for the great hospitality.
