Fun times with Lewis!

3.4 on June 20, 2015

A unique B&B experience. A beautiful old house with a butterfly garden. Lewis and Lilia are lovely lively people with many stories to share. Tip: Brush-up on Game theory before you go.

Nice quick stay!

4.2 on September 21, 2011

My boyfriend and I had a lovely stay, a good night's sleep and a nice breakfast while visiting relatives in Stamford. Stamford is a lovely small town with a gem of a B and B. Lewis and Lily are pleasant folks and lively conversationalists. We'd enjoy staying again to try another room.
