Wonderful stay for our 10th wedding anniversary. Mentioned this when I booked and received a complimentary bottle of champagne in our room. I also have a gluten and dairy allergy which they were more than able to accommodate. There was a basket of gluten free snacks in our room and a delicious gourmet allergy friendly breakfast the next morning. Will definitely return and recommend to others!

Charming B&B off the beaten path...but close enough to everything. Attention to detail in a beautifully restored house. It's like staying with your favorite aunt, not a hotel chain.

French Toast Grand Marnier
Cinnamon Swirled bread, dipped in a rich egg batter, infused with Grand Marnier. Lightly sprinkled with confectioner's sugar. Topped with fresh strawberries, also in a Grand Marnier marinade, and then dusted again with powerdered sugar and finished with Chantilly whipped cream. An absolute favorite of all the guests.
