Exceptional Experience!

5 on April 27, 2015

The Brownstone Colonial Inn Bed and Breakfast with hosts Mark and Brenda Miller not only met, but exceeded our expectations. From the warm welcome to the lovely and comfortable accommodations to the scrumptious breakfasts and evening treats, the Millers definitely share graciously the gift of hospitality! In addition, their willingness to provide gluten free breakfast items to meet dietary needs was greatly appreciated. We look forward to returning in the fall and made certain to reserve our room before departing!

Innkeeper Response

Absolutely phenomenal experience! Will definitely return. Brenda and Mark are an excellent host and hostess. Wonderful service, delicious food, and very peaceful setting. Just can't beat it all around. Highly recommend the Brownstone Colonial Inn.

Old world charm at its finest

Brenda couldn't have been more accommodating. We had such a wonderful time and she made sure to make us feel right at home. We slept in a comfortable bed and woke up to a homemade, full country breakfast of baked oatmeal, homemade honeywheat bread and fresh, local yogurt among other things. The room was immaculately clean and we had our own private bathroom attached to the room. I definitely recommend this place and look forward to coming back again in the near future.

Thank you for taking the time to review our inn! It's exciting to us to see that you are in the age bracket of 18-25 years! Many of our guests are middle-aged - the younger ones don't know what they're missing out on, and we hope you'll spread the word! We look forward to your next visit at the Brownstone Colonial Inn!


Loved this B & B!

5 on February 25, 2015

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!

Innkeeper Response
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.

Innkeeper Response
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!


A Great All Around Experience!

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!

Innkeeper Response
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.

Home Away From Home

5 on June 24, 2014

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.

Innkeeper Response
