Tuggles "Folly" is Fantastic

4.8 on August 01, 2014

I am a "tourist" in my own town. I planned a birthday B&B Cruise during Paddlefest in Rising Sun for my boyfriend's birthday. He didn't want to just "go home" so I investigated the lodging options. Tuggles Folly offered a bed and meal only 7 miles from the Ohio river. Great price compared to the other options. We called ahead and let our hosts know we wouldn't be there about 10p.m. No problem. Our hosts greeted us cheerfully. We toured the home. Debbie settled us on the porch with refreshments to watch the starry night sky. We were asked about breakfast preferences. A good nights sleep in a lovely room and the smell of coffee & bacon awakened us. Ahhh. Great conversation in the morning with our hosts as we watched them prepare the meal. The large table groaned with a large selection of omelets, homemade biscuits, fresh fruit, etc as we sat and enjoyed the panoramic view. We then groaned with have eaten too much. It was all delicious! We are looking forward to returning to see the enormous train display that you can preview on YouTube at keywords: "Tuggles Folly train". Tuggles Folly is one of the best reasons to be a tourist, either traveling from miles away or in your own home town.


Great Bed and Breakfast for military VETS!!!

5 on July 13, 2014

Better late than never. I'm so sorry that I am writing this review so late, but due to military commitments I haven't been able to. I just wanted to say that Dean and Debbie were wonderful host, especially to active military and veterans. They treated us to a free night on Veteran's Day weekend last year. Great accommodations, great conversations, great hosts, and a really good home cooked breakfast. Lori and I had a good time and hope to come back and stay again in the future.

Innkeeper Response
Wonderful reviews such as yours are always welcome! Thank you for doing so. Please return with Lori at any time.


Quaint B&B

4.8 on June 14, 2014

You will not find a nicer B&B anywhere if you are looking for a nice relaxing stay at a scenic beautiful home. The breakfast was deliciously wonderful and the hosts are like family you will want to come back and visit! We loved our stay! Karen and Kevin Becker

Innkeeper Response
And we loved having you as our guests! Come back soon, please.


Beautiful View and Outstanding Breakfast

4.2 on June 09, 2014

We recently stayed at Tuggles Folly while up visiting family. The view from the property was absolutely amazing. But more amazing were the breakfasts that Debbie prepared each morning. Her skillet peaches and apples were fantastic. It was a lovely stay and we would certainly say again the next time we are up to see my Aunt and Uncle.


DELIGHTFUL COUNTRY CHARM

5 on May 23, 2014

Normally we are timeshare vacationers but we were visiting the NMRLA in Friendship. We found this B&B listed close by and decided to give it a try. What a delight! From the moment we arrived, Debbie and Dean welcomed us home and we felt we had know them for years. The week we spent there was the longest B&B stay we had ever tried and we were concerned that we might not like it after a few days. There was nothing to fear. The country charm, tranquility and good will let out time fly by and we were sorry when checkout finally came. Breakfasts were wonderful (our first introduction to Sorgum), views were spectacular and the weather (early May) was delightful. We have already booked another stay. Top ratings for all aspects.

Innkeeper Response
Ellie & Brian -- Thank you for the marvelous review. We also look forward to your return. You are the kind of people for which we opened Tuggles' Folly Bed & Breakfast, i.e. wonderful people coming to us and ringing our doorbell. Travel safely back to us.


Just like home:)

4.4 on February 24, 2014

Tuggles Folly is a b&b that makes you feel right at home and the ones that made it feel that way is the b&b itself; but mainly, Dean and Debbie the host and I thank you two for that. You two are amazing and you both went above and beyond to cater our needs. From cooking my hubby's favorite pecan waffles by request to Debbie tailoring my dress for I could barely walk-in.... we had a company banquet to attend and the theme was Grammy awards and Debbie helped make it possible for me to wear and walk in this dress at the last minute and enjoy my night without the fear of falling. Thank you again Dean and Debbie ...You both should know that I will be a returning customer but mostly a returning new friend..I'm thankful to meet you two and I look forward to stay with you both again! Yours Truly, Robert & Elizabeth Ray


VA Stay

5 on November 24, 2013

My Marine Vet husband and I had never stayed at a B&B before, let alone enjoyed any of the special free deals for Vets on Veterans day. We were surprised to see B&B's participating and noted TugglesFolly, 100 miles away, appeared to have a room, but an email later they were booked. :( Well lo and behold I received an email (of urgency) stating a cancellation and we were in...YEAH!! Debbie and Dean's personable welcome put us immediately at ease upon our arrival. Their home is beautifully elegant and extremely clean and so comfortable. I enjoyed kicking off my shoes and curling up on their very comfortable couch, covered up with a cozy handmade throw and watching DWTS :) Their friendly cat (neighbor) & dog was a plus. Breakfast rocked and we chose the omelets (with everything) Yumm!! There were chocolate and salty goodies and pop at our disposal. We slept in a very comfortable bed. Just conversing with Dean and Debbie was so special. We enjoyed all the time spent with these very special people and learned from them too! The views were as stated and we even saw the first snow of the season. This review only touches on part of what we experienced and it is cemented in our memories forever! I just hope they know how special they are and how special a time the gave us. Thank you Debbie and Dean for all your kindness and hospitality!


Perfect

5 on November 03, 2013

Celebrating my wife's, Tiina, birthday and comming up with something different can be a challenge. This year was to be an unplanned fall follage drive which turned into a gambling boat adventure and an over night. She was playing on the boat and I went about exploring the local attractions and tasked with providing over night lodging. I wached all the parents escorting their children Trick or Treating as well as marveling at local arcitecture in the middle of dricing in a 50 mile circle looking for a vacancy. Nothing would fit the bill of intimacy and quality that this occasion required. A local told me of a wonderful bed and breakfast located on a bluff that was only seven miles away. I called and Dean said, "Come on by and check us out." The veiw was breath taking and the grounds we neatly groomed and beautiful. Dean welcomed me and introduced Debbie. We talked a bit and I agreed that this was the place and I left to get my bride. The rest of our time there was spent in great conversation with the four of us sharing things we were passionate about. We slept well. We ate well. We were loved and welcomed as family. We will go back this winter. It was perfect! Dennis Belcher Lanesville, IN


Best breakfast you'll find anywhere!

4.8 on October 19, 2013

We've stayed at quite a few B&Bs over the years, and have had some pretty terrific meals. But this was the finest breakfast ever -- personalized, precisely what we asked for, and delicious in every way. Debbie's homemade biscuits reign supreme. Dean's ham-and-jalapaeno omelets were outstanding. Add to that the friendly hosts, a big sweetie pie of a dog to greet you, and this is a wonderful spot to park yourselves while you explore the area.


Relaxing stay
