The front door of 1902 Turnpike House swings wide with welcome. A delightful, restored 1902 farm house is your link to the past. This turn-of-the-century inn offers the most discriminating traveler a refreshing retreat. Beautifully decorated with period antiques, spacious guest quarters, queen-size beds, private baths, down comforters, and remote cable TV are some of the details for rest and relaxation. There's no better place to start your day in the mountains than on the expansive front porch with a freshly brewed cup of coffee and the morning paper. The full, hearty, hot breakfast is a memorable time served at the massive farm table in the dining room. The freshest fruits and home baked breads begin the breakfast feast. During your stay, you will want to spend time with your favorite book or one of ours in the gathering room with the wood buring stove, curled up in the upstairs reading nook, or in the hammock under the hemlocks. Innkeepers Cindy & Paul Goedhart, look forward to your discovery of 1902 Turnpike House Bed & Breakfast, a favorite get-away in the mountains. It will become 'your' special place, not just another nice B&B.

The room was wonderful. Imagine having coffee delivered to your bedroom door in the morning! Paul did a fantastic job with breakfasts... especially his stuffed french toast.. I felt as if I had known Cindy for years. The endless cookie jar was a pleasant treat, as was the hot spiced apple cider. I will recommend this to my friends as a warm, friendly, b&b.

We went looking for a quiet place to relax and have a restful getaway. This was the perfect place! Cindy and Paul were friendly and extremely helpful. Everything we needed and more was provided (from extra toiletries to a guest pantry with drinks and snacks to the endless cookie jar!). There were plenty of places to sit and chat or read and the rooms were very clean with every amenity you would expect/need - cable, wi-fi. The owners even upgraded our room for us with no charge because they were not fully booked and thought we would be more comfortable in a different room! Breakfast was amazing - Paul's cooking is top notch. We would recommend this place to everyone! We'll definitely be going back.

I'm been coming here for years. Paul and Cindy are the greatest! A real home away from home. Wonderful breakfasts. Hot tub is excellent. You can't go wrong!

We have stayed at the 1902 Turnpike House the last two years for our post Christmas vacation and have nothing but wonderful memories. Cindy & Paul go up and above to provide A+ sevice to their guests. You leave feeling like you just stayed at a relatives house and are part of the family. The house is beautifully restored and easily accomodates both couples wanting to enjoy a nice, peaceful, romantic getaway to families with children enjoying a family vacation. Each morning Cindy & Paul prepare the most superb and delicious breakfasts. We always enjoyed getting the opportunity to chat with other guests from around the world while enjoying the homecooked breakfast. At night, you can enjoy a good book with a cup of Cindy's apple cidar or a cup of hot chocolate or tea by the fire to relax after a day full of skiing. We will never stay anywhere else when we are in the area and look forward to our next visit.

We have stayed in B&B’s from sea to shining sea some with chefs trained in Paris and some with many modern amenities. When we are drawn to restful contentment our gaze shifts unto the hills and the 1902 Turnpike House. There we find Paul and Cindy and what has become a home away from home. Their grace and hospitality warm our hearts, and the cuisine is second to none. What they have created with sincerity in this old house is an atmosphere that embodies all that a B&B should be.
