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.
Thank you for taking the time to submit a review! Congratulations again on your 35th anniversary! We are honored you chose to spend it with us at The Brownstone Colonial Inn! You've been here often enough that you feel like family! :)

Perfect combination of hospitality, good food, wonderful beds and friendly guests. Already thinking of an occasion to revisit. Mark & Brenda are wonderful.

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!

Like we were staying at our family's house! Warm, cozy, safe and friendly! Breakfast was delicious :) Couldn't have asked for anything more!
Thank you for taking the time to review our inn! And we are really glad that you stayed with us at the Brownstone Colonial Inn, especially since you rarely stay at B&B's! We hope we made a b&b believer out of you! :)

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!

My first time staying at a B&B and I loved it! The house has great colonial charm and the owners and inn keepers were so nice! Did I mention how delicious the breakfasts were ?! The room was comfortable, cozy and very relaxing! Will definitely plan a second stay!
Thank you for your very positive review! I do enjoy cooking and try to vary my recipes, so when you do come back, you can certainly request a favorite breakfast, or hopefully I can present something new to you from my growing repertoire of entrees!

This was our first bed & breakfast stay and it was a wonderful experience. From the history of the 1850's stone wall home, to the extremely pleasant hosts, Mark & Brenda, the Brownstone was a truly unique enjoyable stay. The rooms are warmly furnished in a country theme, breakfast meals were real specialty home cooked dishes from back yard garden and local area grown foods. A return trip is in our future travel plans.
Thank you for your kind words. We're glad you had an enjoyable stay! And although we've never been able to find a date-stone on the main house, we know that the original barn to the property was built in 1759! So we think the kitchen may pre-date the barn; perhaps the settlers built it first and staked their claim on the land and then built the barn. The main house has a different stone masonry and likely was built much later. We continue to work at restoration toward the original colonial style, a labor of love!

this is the first time we ever stayed in a Bed and Breakfast. For our first time this was an awesome experience. Great Food, excellent amenities and wonderful fellowship with owners and guest! Mollie and Sophie the owners dogs were also so loving to the guest. Overall The Best Stay!
Thank you for your kind words and for taking the time to submit a review! We are glad your first b&b experience was a good one, and hopefully you'll continue to enjoy the personal care afforded when staying in local inns! All the best in 2014!

Brenda & Mark Miller welcomed us into their home as their guest. When we all sat around the breakfast table, we felt like old friends. The Inn is beautiful, warm, spotless, and the perfect place for a getaway. It was a great experience.
