Our host met us at the door and gave us a tour of this beautiful residence. We were provided with many amenities, including wine, as part of our stay. The breakfast was outstanding, with commentary from Richard, our host. We plan a return visit soon.

A beautiful historic home that has been meticulously restored. This is the best BnB I have stayed in. Richard, the innkeeper, is a wonderful person, full of knowledge about the history of the home, and current activities in the area. The breakfasts are amazing five course adventures. A slow relaxed pace and plenty of time to visit with the other guests. We stayed in the Alexander suite, and used our sunroom for a small family gathering seven. I highly recommend this place, and look forward to coming back.

Well I'll be honest that I was a little worried when Richard called us en route to see when we were going to be there because he had to run out. But when we let him know we'd be there right at 4, he said no problem, he just wanted to make sure there was wine waiting for us. Our two night/two breakfast stay was just really amazing. The house is stunning, in fact the photos don't do it justice. We had the Alexander room which was beautiful and has a private porch area that we took full advantage of. There are also a million places to lounge around the house. Quite classical music follows you throughout the house, just quiet enough to set a relaxing atmosphere. Richard was beyond nice, and made it a point to ensure that I was fully caffeinated at all times, by my request. Breakfast takes two full hours, not because he's slow at all, but because there are so many courses, and they are not wimpy portions. A fruit parfait, fritata, salad, even ice cream to top it all off. I swear, we could barely eat dinner those nights. But when we did go out the first night, Richard jumped to make us a reservation at Signature, which was an event in itself and I highly recommend you go. Our experience was just wonderful. I can't imagine how it could have been better. We completely and totally loved it, and if we visit MN in the future, we will absolutely, unquestioningly be staying there again.

The owner, Richard, makes you feel welcome the moment you step into the mansion. He is very accommodating. Richard starts his guests with a five-course breakfast that will amaze you. In the evening, he offers wine and chocolates. The rooms are all splendid, and they each have a private bath. If you need to get away from the stress in your life, this is the place to stay.
