We had a superb 3-day weekend staying in this awesome B & B. We visited on just about the coldest day of the year (I think zero degrees at night), but our room was warm and cozy. The atmosphere was awesome and the house still has original features from the 18th century. The owners are kind, gracious, and accomodating. While staying here, we were indulged with special touches like homemade chocolate strawberries left in our room (on Valentine's Day) and a large-hearth fire in the kitchen that I believe was only kept lit for the entire weekend because we liked it. Each morning, breakfast was delicious and filling and, without asking, an option was always provided for vegetarian diets. When we were undecided about local daytime activities, the owners provided us with helpful information and connected us with local people. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Loved it!
Thank you for your most gracious review! It was indeed frigid outside that weekend, and we were quite happy to enjoy the warmth of the fire all weekend! We really enjoyed connecting with you and look forward to a future visit at the Brownstone Colonial Inn!

I was traveling for business visiting suppliers and Brenda and Mark made me feel at home. The house has a great historic feel while being renovated with modern conveniences. It was nice to have a home cooked breakfast while out on the road as well. Also the bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in.
Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to post a review. We are glad that you chose to stay at a bed and breakfast, especially since it is "outside the norm" for you. We've been hosting more and more business travelers and wish to make each stay comfortable and personable, a change from the usual, sterile atmosphere of a hotel. Should you happen to be in the area again, we hope you'll choose the Brownstone in the future!

Our stay at the Brownstone Colonial Inn was magnificent! Our room was clean, warm, inviting, and comfortable. The breakfasts were sensational. And the only thing better than our room and breakfasts, were the incredible innkeepers, Mark and Brenda. I would highly recommend the Brownstone Colonial Inn to anyone looking for a 5 Star bed and breakfast experience!
Thank you for your your kind words! We look forward to accommodating you again very soon! :)

My wife and I spent our 35th anniversary here and it was sensational. The proprietors are excellent and we felt like family. The breakfasts are awesome. Everything is home grown and cooked fresh. The rooms and house are very clean and it is centrally located to many different attractions.

This B&B exceeded all of our expectations! The restored house and landscaped grounds are amazing and beautiful. If you're a foodie, you'll want to stay here. Ice cold homemade strawberry lemonade made from home picked berries and home squeezed lemons was always available and it was delicious, as were Brenda's homemade cookies. One breakfast consisted of fruit with local yogurt, baked peach cream cheese French toast made from Brenda's homemade oatmeal bread and some fluffy scrambled eggs and local sausage and another day was a hash brown casserole with cheese, mushrooms and home grown asparagus and a rhubarb/strawberry/apple crisp to die for. I couldn't finish mine so Brenda found me a container and a spoon to take it with me and I ate it in the car later! Brenda and Mark are lovely people who honestly make you feel like their personal guest. Their conversation and friendship was much appreciated by us as were the snuggles with the very well behaved Sophie and Molly and Sally. We hope to come back and are tryng to reroute our annual trip south for the winter to include The Brownstone Colonial Inn.
Thank you for your amazing review and for the time you took out of a busy schedule to do so! We do hope it works out to re-route your annual trip south to stay with us again at the Brownstone Colonial Inn and will look forward to serving you again!

We can't say enough about this fabulous bed and breakfast. From the warm hospitality, to the great food and clean accomodations, we can wholeheartedly recommend the Brownstone Colonial Inn. The charm of yesterday meets with the comfort of today for a B&B that is returned to time after time.
Thank you so much for your very positive review! So glad you enjoyed your stay with us! Since you stayed recently, you may be aware that we were in the process of renovating our "Queen Anne Room," which I am happy to report is finally finished! The bathroom has a new tile shower, as well as a restored drysink with hand-hammered vessel and trough-style faucet.

We recently returned from our second visit to the Brownstone Colonial Inn. Again, a wonderful visit. The innkeepers are lovely and made several great suggestions about nearby events and attractions. The breakfast was delicious and prepared with a lot of love and attention. The historic home has lots of character, which we enjoy. Our room was very comfortable and modern conveniences like WiFi and access to a small refrigerator also were much appreciated. All in all, a wonderful destination for a relaxing weekend. We'll be back!
