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!
