This trip was one of the most relaxing and fascinating short term bed-and-breakfast stays. I've ever experienced! The incredible local history was made alive by Marti'a amazing stories spun in the first person as though it was happening today! The entire inn was a living Museum dotted with artifacts, displays, and books; all about the early American Revolutionary period. His antidotal stories of his life in the Navy and as a chef for the president at Camp David all made history seem more alive and personal! Add to that the beautiful rolling landscape of the rural community outside of Grover and you have yourself one of the best bed-and-breakfast experiences you'll ever have!

I love the Oceanius Room with the king size bed! Great hospitality by Chef Mongiello, his wife and beautiful daughter! Hearty homemade breakfast was the best part! A tour of the house was a great way to understand its history! We loved the cooking class and complimentary wine tasting! We will definitely be back for more!

My husband and I stayed here for two nights of our honeymoon and had a wonderful time. The inn keeper was very nice and very knowledgeable about the town. The food was absolutely amazing. We can't wait to go back!

The Inns of the Patriot was a great choice for our 4th of July vacation. The tour was very interesting and the cooking class was great fun.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The opportunity to talk to Chef Marti with his seemingly endless amount of information on history (world, american and presidential) cooking and presentation was priceless. We had a delicious meal at Nifen and we purchased a few bottles at the Baker Buffalo Creak winery while having a long talk with Ann (owner and hospitality professional).

My wife and I found this inn on a travel site.Our expectations were met and exceeded by this great place! Marti and Stormy make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive. The house is very comfortable. Our room was large and neat. The personal attention you receive is a welcome change from being just another number on a ledger. I highly recommend taking one of the cooking classes! They are fun and you get to eat what you prepare! If you are looking for something different this is the place!

Though we were only here for the cooking class, we were impressed by the layout and overall feel of the B&B. The chef that held the class was informative, entertaining, engaging, and funny. This is something we would definitely recommend to friends to try.
