My husband and I stayed at the Sarah Kendall House early in July to celebrate our 20th anniversary. We had a lovely stay. The house is beautiful inside and out, clean and spacious, but most of all, Fran and Brian were very accommodating as they served such wonderful vegan breakfasts. We would definitely stay at this Bed and Breakfast again!

The room , service and genuine caring goes into the Sarah Kendall House. Fran and Bryan are the consummate hosts. Bryan's stories are worth the stay. We are regulars and will remain so as long as they both are there.

We had an absolutely amazing stay at the Sarah Kendall house. I booked this trip so that I could propose to my girlfriend and this place was the perfect setting for this memory. The house is great, the view from the look out tower (where I proposed) was beautiful, and then staff were warm, welcoming, and made us feel like family. We will definitely be going back and recommend that everyone stay here at least for a night!
