Gene and Bob were excellent hosts. Food was amazing. Our room was beautifully decorated and we enjoyed the little extras provided, including a small flashlight by our bedside should we need it, a full vanity basket, chocolates, amazing little soaps we could take home, plush robes--well, you get the picture. Our breakfast was a wonderful smoothie, bread pudding with fruit compote and eggs benedict. All were very yummy. We will definitely recommend The Acorn B&B and will return ourselves.

If I could live here, I would!
