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.
