Nice winter B&B

4.4 on March 03, 2014

The Innkeepers were willing to work with us to come another date due to the weather. That was very helpful. The B&B was very nice, we are glad we went.

Wonderful Weekend

5 on May 19, 2013

We had a wonderful weekend at Second Wind. Mark and Kelly were amazingly hospitable. Breakfast was beyond expectations. We stayed in one of their lofts and the space was very clean and cozy. It was very serene and peaceful. My husband and I were so happy to be there guests. Stay here and you will not be disappointed!


A perfect getaway

5 on May 13, 2012

My husband and I stayed in the Bear Den for our first anniversary. This was our first time at a B&B. It was just what we needed. We loved the farm animals (especially the donkeys) and, most of all, we loved that Mark and Kelly made us feel at home. And her breakfasts are to die for!!! We will def be coming back. Thank you Mark and Kelly!!!!!!!!


PERFECT GETAWAY!!!
