Home Away From Home

5 on April 13, 2014

I've stayed at Squiers Manor for the last 3 years while attending the Woodcarvers Congress, and make reservations a year in advance, for the next Congress, because I would be devastated should I find there are no rooms available. The owners, Kathy and Virl, make their guests feel not only welcomed, but like family. The rooms are absolutely gorgeous, clean and spotless. The bed in my room is more comfortable than the one I have at home. Their employees are so very friendly that I hug them good bye at the end of my stay. The breakfasts are gourmet - more than I can ever eat - and the desserts are simply spectacular. I feel so fortunate to have found Squiers Manor, but even more fortunate to have found two new friends in Kathy and Virl. Their B&B is truly a "Home Away From Home." Spending a week at Squiers Manor is a luxury I give myself every year. Thank you Kathy and Virl!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for the compliments. We're so glad you consider this your "home away from home." The best part of being an innkeeper is getting to meet so many wonderful guests. Virl & I truly enjoy all of our guests and many have become friends and as close to family as you can get without actually being related. But we couldn't do what we do without our excellent staff. Thank you Peggy, Mary, Becky, Delores, & Lisa for all you do for Squiers Manor B & B. Kathy Banowetz, Innkeeper


Very Relaxing

Best B&B Ever!

I've stayed twice at Squires Manor - first a week in July 2013 and then my husband and I went back for a weekend in early October 2013. From the first minute I arrived, Kathy, Virl and staff went out of their way to make me feel at home. The furnishings are beautiful, the food is awesome (you can't possibly leave the table hungry!) and the rooms are spotless! I loved that Kathy and Virl take time to get to know their guests and love the conversation! Will go back again and again....absolutely my favorite place to go!


Simply fabulous!

My husband & I spent 3 nights at Squiers Manor from 10/17-10/19. We came to the area with no specific destination in mind, simply to have a mini-vacation & enjoy the fall scenery. We had a great time! While the surrounding area provided lots of things to do & see, we enjoyed the warmth & hospitality offered by the Squiers' staff. The owners were out of town & I must compliment Mary & Peggy immensely for their friendliness, courtesy & culinary talents. We have never been so impressed with any place we have stayed previously. We chose Squiers because of the good reviews we read about & intend to keep that ball rolling! We will definitely return for a visit! This place feels like home! I would not hesitate to recommend Squiers Manor to anyone. Thanks for a fantastic stay!
