We enjoyed the hospitality very much. So pleasant to sit in the parlor in the evenin and listen to music of the 40s and 50s.

Unforgettable weekend!

Spent the weekend with a couple of girlfriends and didn't want to leave! As soon as we pulled up to the place and walked in the door, I felt right at home. As I looked around, I was in awe of the beautiful antique furnishings, lace curtains, wood floors, the beautiful Victorian decor, and all the personal touches. Amazing breakfast, wonderful hospitality, and I slept like a baby. I felt so refreshed. This place is clearly a labor of love for Jay and Adrian. Hope to be back some day!

A Top B&B!

What an outstanding Victorian-period Bed & Breakfast! Adrian & Jay are warm, helpful, & charming hosts. The furnishings & atmosphere took us back in time ... refreshing & relaxing, considering the hectic world we live in. Accommodations were superb & the nightly rate makes this B&B a superior value. Clean, comfortable, and the breakfasts were all 5 stars! (Adrian is a professional chef.) Would my wife & I stay here again? Absolutely! In a heartbeat! (P.S. I'm retired military so consider me "picky" wherever we lodge!)

Has a Victorian era stair chase - steep by modern standards. May be a problem for some people.

The rooms are impeccably decorated. The living rooms are excellent for relaxing. The breakfasts were prepared to be both visually and gastronomically pleasing. Each breakfast was prepared with great care. There is plenty of coffee and soda available during the day. The Eisenhower Presidential Library is truly an American treasure. If you are a student of WW II and the 1950's, a visit to both the museum and library are a must.

Nice Place

We had a very short stay but it was very pleasant and Adrian was a very nice hostess and her food was delish! Only thing I wish I could have had coffee in the room but I understand why that is not allowed . Thanks!
