When I read reviews I love to hear about what rooms people stayed in and the details so here goes ours. We stayed in the Rose Room and we so loved the very comfortable recliners in the sitting area and the private porch we had the chairs out there were so comfortable also and we appreciated the little tables next to them. Our bathrom was small but the shower was Great! We were ok with the small bathroom during this stay as we loved the porch and sitting area. The only thing I wish is that we could of had a Keruig in our room so we would not have to leave the room for coffee and some rooms do have one and next time we will try one of those rooms :) I will say though they have coffee ready at 7 downstairs which was very nice. Dave is just the sweetest man and so humble and made us feel right at home. They made our reservations for the Resturant "Intermission" which is Awesome and we will be coming back to the B&B and Intermission to eat again:) Thank you also for the beverages when we arrived the wine was sooo good.

Nancy and Dave were two of the finest people we have ever met. They were most helpful in guiding us in an unknown area of the country. Our room was magnificent, very clean and a wonderful view. I would highly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone. Can' wait to come back and enjoy another wonderful breakfast and extended stay at the Habberstad House Bed and Breakfast. Thank you Nancy and Dave. The Hartmans

My husband and I rented the Carriage House the other weekend. It was my birthday weekend. What a pleasant surprise this place was. Everything was wonderful. The Carriage House is very private and comfortable. It is very apparent that the owners have taken every detail into account and chosen only the highest quality furnishings. I loved opening the windows and listening to the water fountain outside while eating the breakfast that they brought to us. I felt so pampered. The theater in town was excellent and the bike trail was awesome. We rented bikes and it was so convenient. I bought the owners book about owning a bed and breakfast and read it in two days. Imagine my surprise to find out that the historical architect who helped select the exterior colors was a family friend of ours. That made our stay even more special. We hope to come back, or maybe I will bring my theater loving sister down for a quick trip.

I wish to thank Dave and Nancy for enhancing our short trip with a stay at their lovely Bed and Breakfast which included wonderful conversation, breakfast (truly the best) and a restful night sleep. I couldn't ask for more. In addition, the help recommending as well as making dinner reservations at an excellent local restaurant was appreciated.

Habberstadt House is a 100+year old house that has been beautifully restored to its original grandeur and tastefully decorated with period antiques. We were in the Amish Room and loved it, although any of the rooms would be a good choice.
