Anniversary to remember

5 on June 13, 2016

An amazing experience with delicious food, charming company, and lavishly comfortable room all made us both regret leaving, but also looking forward to our next chance to visit. And get the romance package! Arriving to a plate of lushious chocolate covered strawberries, a bottle of champagne, and flowers added something really special. And the 3 course dinner the owner prepared was sensational! A definite must, regardless of occasion!


Memorial day weekend away

4.6 on June 13, 2016

We stayed in the Tuscan room. I loved that we had our own entrance off the parking lot so we didn't disturb other people by getting "home" a little late. This Inn is the perfect distance away from the hustle but close enough to be able to visit some of the distilleries and horse farms. Breakfasts were fabulous. My husband was anticipating the waffles because we had heard how good they were and he was very happy. Inn keepers were great. Very friendly and accommodating. Would definitely stay again.


Disappointed

1.8 on June 08, 2016

I have stayed at multiple B&Bs and this was by far the most disappointing. First off our room was basically a built in addition and was not inside the main house. This was not clear on the website as it takes away part of the fun of staying at a B&B. Everything was outdated, not kept up, and dingy. There was no hand soap, water, or coffee in the room. The dining room had cat hair on the table and the breakfast was very similar to what I am used to getting at a Days Inn. I want to end by saying this would have been expected from a cheaper B&B but when I pay 200+ for 1 night, I expect more. Needless to say I won't be going back to Montgomery Inn.


Lovely place!

The staff was kind and helpful, the room was gorgeous, the breakfast delicious, and the resident cats friendly and fluffy! We were glad to spend our wedding night here and will come again on our first anniversary!

The house and the surrounding area are absolutely gorgeous. The cats gave it that little extra homely feel :)


Comfortable and Informal

5 on May 18, 2016

We had a very comfortable and relaxing stay at the Montgomery Inn BnB. Our rooms were beautiful, spacious, and clean. Breakfasts were delicious. The only downside is for people who do not like, or are allergic to, cats. There are four felines who roam in and out of the house. I love cats, so I did not mind.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for reviewing us--so glad you enjoyed your stay! We do have cats-very friendly cats. I am attempting to construct a barrier that will keep them out of the main house and restricted to my quarters, but when they go outside, guests have a tendency to let them back in. We do have suites on the wing with private entrances and air purifiers. It is something we are working on.


Pam is the best!

Signature Dish

Pamela's Homemade Granola
Wonderfully buttery and cinnamony crunch, we serve it atop our yogurt parfait, but it is equally good as a snack mix or cereal, easy cobbler topping or over icecream! Mix together old fashioned oats, cinnamon, brown sugar, pich of salt, and favorite broken nuts (we like pecans). Drizzle with melted butter, spread out thin on a jellyroll pan and toast & stir until gently browned. Will crisp as it cools. Yum! Try adding dried cranberries or raisins, too.
