The Queen Anne guest house is a dream! My husband and I came here for our birthdays and really enjoyed our stay here. The house is gorgeous and welcoming. Mike is an excellent host, very personable, and makes the most delicious breakfasts! You simply cannot beat the value. We felt very taken care of here. Will definitely be returning!

We had a very nice time at the Queen Anne Guest House. The owner was very thorough and you could tell took a lot of pride in his home/business. It was very charming and only a short walk to the Main St. It was nice to be a little bit off the beaten path, but yet have a quick walk to downtown. I do think the only reason we were able to still make a reservation over a holiday weekend was because they don't offer online reservations. I do think that would increase their patronage, but if that's not a concern, they are probably just fine continuing to do business as they do.

Our Innkeeper, Mike provided wonderful gourmet meals at a beautifully set table. He also provided a get together snack at 5:00 pm each day. It was fun to break the ice with other guests and share interesting ideas on local activities and such. Rooms were spacious and very clean. It was nice having a private bath. The morning coffee bar on the second floor was a real treat for people who need a few cups to prepare for the day. We will definitely return and refer all our friends.

Mike was a warm and hospitable host, making us feel at home as soon as we entered the front door. My favorite thing was the wonderful stories he told us during breakfast. We stayed in the Lady Ashley room. It is more beautiful than the pictures show, but is quite small, with the (extremely comfortable) bed taking up most of the space. The adjoining bathroom is nearly as large as the room itself and the fireplace across from the large tub make for a romantic and relaxing evening.
