Early April Birthdat

4.2 on April 11, 2014

If you are an early riser the included breakfast will be a chalkenge as it iz offered during a rather brief mid-morning (830-0900) timeframe. It was delicious but we found ourselves waiting around an hour and getting a late start to our day as a result. Celebrating an April birthday mid-week pre-season and had the mansion virtually to ourselves. Rooms were clean and fresh. The mansion was beautifully antiqued. The staff was warm, inviting and helpful. Highly recommend for a relaxing getaway.

great get- away

This is the first Bed & Breakfast that we have enjoyed very much. We loved everything about it. The bedroom was beautiful, perfect and charming. Enjoyed the surroundings inside and out. The food was very good. We would come back here again and again. Cleanliness was very important to us and this was excellent. Thank you for the exellent service by the office employees. We appreciataed it. Mr & Mrs. Alfred Penzo

We purchased a 2 night stay via Groupon and were very pleased with the deal and the room. The room was large and comfortable and the breakfast was quite extensive.
