This is a very nice B&B and the proprietors are very pleasant and enjoyable people. I would highly recommend a stay.

Fantastic place to stay :)

This house was beautiful, and the furnishings and rooms were very comfortable. The couple was very friendly and breakfast was delicious and better than I expected. If I ever pass through Resselaer again, I will definitely be staying here!

We thought we might come in late and received a phone call checking on our status. We were greeted warmly when we got there. Our breakfast was fantastic and we had a lot of fun and laughs talking with the other guests at breakfast. Highly recommended. We would go back if that way again.

Exceptional B&B

Fantastic place to stay for business trip

Top rating for this B&B. I needed a place to stay for 1 night for business in Morocco, IN and this was a great decision. The innkeepers, Sally and Fred were very friendly and informative about the area. Breakfast was excellent. I highly recommend this business or pleasure.
