From the moment we entered our cottage it was magical. A greeting to us personally on a plate, music playing, a decanter of brandy waiting... The romance filled the entire space- a beautiful (and very comfortable) bed, robes to wear, the fireplace that glows beside an amazing tub for two! The breakfast arrived warm every morning and was delicious!! Our every need was met- By the Side of the Road is like a little piece of heaven on Earth. We WILL be back!

Our visit was intended to be a romantic getaway for New Year's Eve and "By the Side of the Road" proved to be the perfect place. My fiance and I were both extremely pleased and we will definitely be back for another visit.

We absolutely loved our stay at By The Side of the Road! From the moment we arrived, we were treated as family house guests. Dennis, Janice and Anna made us feel welcome and we loved visiting with them. Our room was beautiful. The feather bed was so comfortable, the jacuzzi bath was perfect and the fireplace was inviting. All the small details made us feel special - plush bathrobes, decanter of bourbon, bath salts, etc. The breakfast was delicious and it was especially nice having this delivered to the room so we didn't have to rush to get dressed. We will be back!

Our stay at By the Side of the Road was absolutely amazing! I book this place for our anniversary and it was the first time I or my wife stayed at a bed and breakfast. The cottage was well decorated, the staff had music playing when we walked in the cottage (this caused my wife to breakdown in tears), and breakfast was served in a picnic basket every morning and delicious, simply amazing! Additionally, Janice and Dennis were very welcoming and friendly, which added to the warmth of the atmosphere. I highly recommend this place for a nice, romantic, and relaxing getaway. My wife and I plan on returning very soon!

We enjoyed our lovely stay in the Water Lily cottage. The room was beautifully decorated and most importantly, clean. The porch with pond view was wonderful. I would recommend this establishment to family and friends.

A wonderful stay in the beautiful Manor House. Suite was spacious and attractive and had many amenities. Bed was especially comfortable, and everything was very clean. Delicious breakfast. Lovely, peaceful setting.

We stayed in the Mountain Laurel Suite in a separate small building by the side of a beautiful pond. This must be a new build because everything is pristine. One of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. Room has everything you could want and where the owners really excel is in their attention to detail and in providing a plethora of thoughtful extras. It's as though someone sat down and thought to themselves "hmmm…how can I make this even better?" I thought the room was a bit pricy for the area but it really is an outstanding room. A delicious breakfast is delivered right to the door. Absolutely first rate. I would definitely stay here (and nab this very room) if I were ever in the area again.
