Duke and MJ have hit a grand slam home run in the B&B game! This inn is quaint, quiet, relaxing and has every modern convenience you might want even though you are staying in an 1880's Victorian Home. Prepare to be pampered. These innkeepers are caring and giving. They take an interest in your day and give wonderful advice about the area. You won't want to leave. From the hug you can have upon arrival to that last glorious breakfast and lingering bubble bath on checkout day, it is all simply perfection. There is no other word to describe your stay. Oh, wait! Yes, there is, and here are a few: glorious, refreshing, oasis, welcoming, caring, pampering, rejuvenating, energizing, restorative, inspiring, invigorating, enlightening...

What a great way to celebrate our 25 years (+ seven months) of marriage. Mary Jane and Duke were most gracious and hospitable hosts. The food was excellent and the little touch of fresh flowers picked that very morning (I saw Mary Jane cutting the flowers as I walked around the quaint town) was beautiful. They both were so accommodating with giving of their precious time to add even more to our memorable visit.

First time at a B&B. Very clean and many amenities. Happy it is a "green" B&B. Very friendly innkeepers. Beyond excellent breakfast served in the room. Highly recommend the Ana room. Only minus is the proximity of the room to the kitchen (where they are cooking thus not as private during the beginning and end of stay).
