I didn't want to leave!

The inn-keepers were super friendly and helpful. The breakfast that was served was better than any place around. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice getaway/vacation!

Weekend Getaway

4.6 on March 16, 2014

This was the 3rd. time we have stayed at Bowman's Oak Hill Bed & Breakfast and everything was outstanding as usual, with the exception of one thing. While we were there over the weekend, we received an inch or two of snow and were surprised that at no time during our stay (Friday night thru Sunday morning) did the person managing the Bed & Breakfast for Dave & Nancy shovel the walkways or driveway. The walkways to the cabins and up to the back of the house were snow covered and slippery. It was not the service we have come to expect. Otherwise the food was excellent and the rooms were spotless.

Great B&B

Winter getaway

5 on March 06, 2014

This was the first time in a bed and breakfast for us. Totally enjoyed it. The rooms were so very nicely kept up. The innkeepers were so friendly. Would come back here in a heart beat. What a great first experience for us in a bed and breakfast. Hope to return next winter again for a short getaway. Dennis and Kay

Wonderful little getaway

5 on March 04, 2014

This wonderful property provided such a great getaway from all the hustle and bustle of life. The cottages are perfect for a romantic weekend away. Breakfast was simply amazing! There was variety of food and enough for a little morning snack as well. It was neat to see wildlife outside our window. We will definitely be returning in the future.
