I enjoyed my stay here from the call before arrival to the hug goodbye. I felt like I was with family and would return again.

Gilbert's Bed & Breakfast has cozy, comfortable rooms located in a charming home. We especially enjoyed the homemade crepes with strawberries and whipped cream.

This is a wonderful secluded bed and breakfast. Our hosts were warm and charming and made us feel like old friends. Having Jean and Don on hand to tell us more about the history of the place made our stay a personal one. We highly recommend it for your next stay over.
