This is a tiny town, but a great B&B. The grounds are beautiful and immaculately kept, even have a swimming pool & fire pit. The staff was great. The breakfast was excellent. The Scarbrough Room was large and comfortable. Excellent place

I've never stayed at a bed and breakfast before, but I can tell you that if I have a chance to stay in one again; they are going to have some standards to hold up to. I stayed in the Huntmaster room and it is very cozy; the bedroom is not in the room, but it is still private, you get a key. It did not bother me at all. You will love it so much, that you wont mind leaving your room to use it!

Jan and Terry go over and above in the name of luxury. The Churchhill Room was lovely and so very comfortable! We enjoyed the cold water and chilled wine from the local vinyard. The breakfast was delicious and the grounds are beautiful to look at and walk through. I was also there for a bridal shower luncheon in late summer and we were seated out in the pavillion. That too, paired with the weather that day, was a perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon. I look forward to coming back. Thanks for all the little things you do and touches you add that make the Inn such a wonderful experience. Bill & Jan Settles Wapella, IL

I hosted a baby shower for my daughter at the inn and everything was so personal and lovely. All of the guests had a wonderful time and thanked us for inviting them. The guests loved touring the house and many people were interested in staying there or hosting events. Thanks again to Jan and Terry for helping make memories.

The Greene Gables Inn was a breath taking experience. No expense was spared to provide luxurious accomodations and superb hospitality. From the green tea and rose scents that flourished in the hallway to the elegant dining area, the Greene Gables Inn was a world class accomodation. It was the perfect combination of a grand historic inn that had been updated to reflect a modern aire of old world charm as an English Manor. The Inn Keepers Jan and Terry Price were the epitomy of gratiousness. I look forward to our stay next year.
