We had received a night at the Smythe House as a gift from our son and our daughter-in-law. We had a really nice time walking around the town,went to a delicious dinner at Lucy's followed by a movie at the old theater. The B&B was lovely and comfortable, the owners very nice, with a delicious breakfast before we left.

We enjoyed our stay here. Justine was very friendly, and knowledgeable about the area. Our room was nicely appointed, very clean and the bed very comfortable! It was cozy and inviting. A lovely place to return to after an exhausting day touring. We had internet, TV (clear picture, lots of stations), and our cell phones had reception. We would love to return and stay longer.

David and Justine are consummate hosts, chefs, and fascinating people. Their beautifully appointed and well-maintained inn has the charm you expect from a B&B, along with the comforts we expect in a high end hotel or inn. The customized breakfast was fabulous, especially the crepes filled with eggs and served with a light orange flavored sauce. David and Justine were excellent at making suggestions for activities and restaurants in the area. We would love to return!
