My wife and I visited the featherbed earlier this year and liked it so much we decided to reserve a block of rooms for our wedding this past weekend. The beds are very comfortable, rooms are very clean, breakfast is delicious, and the horse barn out back is a lot of fun to visit. We look forward to seeing Tom and Linda again at the Featherbed, they're great to talk with!

This was the best experience I have had at a bed & breakfast. The bed was so comfortable, the rooms spacious, the food wonderful, and the innkeepers are the absolute best!

Well the only thing missing here was Bing Crosby singing White Christmas....we have made the Featherbed Inn our B&B of choice on two occasions now, and will continue to do so for as long as the the wonderful Inn keepers Tom & Linda Gardener will have us. The setting for the Inn is idyllic and situated conveniently amidst all the main Ski resorts in the area, if you are after a warm and friendly atmosphere, "brilliant" breakfasts and a comfy bed to rest your weary bones after a great days Skiing then I can safely say you need look no further than the FBI. Our children had brilliant time here also, the grounds surrounding the Inn are extensive enabling you to you go for relaxing walks in the snow or just plain having fun. The animals and the old barn add a whole other dimension to the experience....we will be back...Brilliant! The Browns Essex, UK.
