Girls Winery Weekend

5 on February 23, 2016

The perfect choice for a winery weekend away! The owner's are beyond friendly, the breakfast was delicious, and the location was perfect. We had so much fun, being able to just relax at the B&B and explore local wineries (with complimentary tasting tickets as an added surprise). Turn on the record player, explore the game trunk, and relax by the fireplace!

Generally, this B&B was an excellent experience, full of little niceties and surprises the whole time we were there. We went to a friend's wedding, and came back to a room both cleaned up and a bed turned down! Definitely full of charm.


Birthday Getaway

5 on February 11, 2014

I chose to stay here with my boyfriend and surprise him for his birthday in February of 2014. I emailed Lynn about a possible stay and she was quick to respond. When we arrived both ladies were very nice and gave us a nice tour of the house. Once in the room there was a plate of goodies on the bed and a small box of extra goodies for my boyfriends birthday. Lynn gave us nice suggestion for a place for dinner, Pomme, and they had 3 vouchers for us to visit wineries. Lynn even had a little map of wineries for us to tour. We really enjoyed the cheese and fruit tray in the evening and my boyfriend loved the sherry. The breakfast was extremely good and very fulling. We stayed in one of the smaller rooms and it was just enough. There was no TV in our room but that gave us a chance to talk before bed. I really loved the night cookies on our bed when we returned from dinner. We would recommend this place in a heartbeat and would stay again, hopefully with warmer weather next time!!!


Great Find!

10th Anniversary Getaway

5 on November 04, 2013

We had the pleasure of staying with Lynn and Joyce. The rooms are lovely, the food delicious and our hosts more than gracious. They helped us plan out our activities in the area and set up our lunch reservation at a local winery. The evening wine and cheese was a nice way to wind down and we were able to take advantage of the nice weather to sit on the back deck and watch the birds at the feeders.


25th Anniversary getaway

The food,service and hospitality that Joyce and Lynn provide at their B&B is absolutely fantastic!! We had a wonderful time. It felt like we were staying with relatives! The location was very close to all the places we wanted to visit. Hope to be back again soon. Thank you both so much for a very memorable weekend.
