Luxury Experience

4.4 on September 13, 2013

I work in the hotel industry for 17 years now and usually stay in many different hotels when I and my family travel but we decided to try B&B for a change though the rate is much higher than my hotel rate privilege. We stayed at 3 different B&B's and it is just OK, But when we stayed at The Inn at Dresden sometime on August, 2013, I changed the perception on how this B&B operates. We stayed on a very luxurious room, personalized dinner served and gourmet breakfast with extra delicious homemade treats. It was a unique and wonderful experience.

Awesome B&b

We enjoyed our second stay (4/2013) as much as our first (4/2009). The rooms,the food and the hospitality are always excellent and so enjoyable. We have relaxed and let the outside daily stress fade away! The feeling of your stay being important to the B&B owners is very evident!!

Best Stay Ever

We are getting ready to go back for our 2nd wedding anniversary. We absolutely LOVE this place. There is nothing like it! The service is incredible, the room is amazing!

This place was the perfect setting for an engagement proposal!

I found this place on Google randomly while trying to find somewhere close but far enough for my boyfriend and I to celebrate our anniversary. We definitely got more then we bargained for! Excellent room, amazing food, very good hospitality, and of course we got engaged! We will definitely be coming back, we enjoyed our stay thoroughly!

Girls weekend

5 on October 02, 2012

My first stay here but won't be my last. Came for a girls getaway weekend for some shopping and fun. Had never stayed in a B&B before and this has spoiled me for other ones. Inn was spectacular. Burke was so nice and friendly and made us feel right at home. The views were fantastic. It was so relaxing to have breakfast while watching the morning fog lift over the valley. Will come back again for sure!

Great Getaway

5 on September 27, 2012

This is our favorite weekend getaway. I can't say enough about it. Burke is an awesome Inn keeper and a wonderful chef. The breakfasts are to die for. We just love to hang out and relax. We have stayed at the Dresden twice and will definitely be back.
