Mary and Bill are wonderful, gracious hosts and welcome visitors to their home as if they are family. The house is pleasant and peaceful, filled in every corner with interesting antiques and artistic touches. The refreshing quiet of their corner of the country is only broken by the occasional moo of their charming cows and the songbirds visiting their fruit trees. The fresh, delicious food Mary and her family prepares is all gathered from the bounty of her garden, the fruit trees and the fresh milk of their cows and eggs from the chickens. Even the soap has been carefully handmade. Every aspect of a visit to Thyme in the Country is a delight, made even more special by the personal attention of Mary and Bill. You will leave not only refreshed and renewed but with the warmth of a new friendship.

Thyme was the perfect surprise from my boyfriend for our anniversary. The home was warm and cozy, the owner welcomed us and when we told her it was our anniversary even provided us wine!

Herbs; growing them, cooking with them, decorating and learning about their folk lore has always been one of our hobbies. We have created a bed and breakfast that combines this hobby with our lifestyle, having an emphasis on ecology and interwoven with the local culture. The result has been a more meaningful experience for everyone.
