We will return

A friend and I planned a surprise weekend get-away with our wives and Sherry and Bruce could not have been more accommodating and gracious. Close to interesting shops and restaurants. Outstanding breakfasts along with an extra treat in the evening. We will want to return.

We have stayed several times and the food and atmosphere is wonderful each time. Thanks to Bed and Breakfast website we found this place when we were new to the area.

Amazing Food!

Breakfast was amazing! I cannot stress that enough! I was told by friends how good the food was but was still amazed by the quality of the home cooked meals. The innkeepers were accomidating and very personable.

Sweet retreat

The hosts are always very welcoming as friendly. The home is neat and clean and the rooms nicely decorated. Just about any little thing you might need has been thoughtfully provided. I've stayed there at least 3 times and always enjoy the large spread they do for breakfast-fresh fruit, warm egg dish, baked oatmeal, pastries and a large assortment of coffees, teas and cocoas anytime. Wonderful!

Wonderful and Relaxing B&B

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Sherry & Bruce were such gracious host. They made you feel welcomed and right at home the minute you walk through the door. The breakfast was absolutely wonderful. We really appreciate the extra effort they made to accommodate special diets. Looking forward to a return visit.

Best value

Had the pleasure of staying at The McKenzie house to celebrate my birthday. I was a first timer for staying af a B&B but I don't believe I'll ever stay at a hotel again. Sherry & Bruce were gracious hosts & they operate with a spirit of excellence. My room was wonderful & very clean, I would definitely stay here again in the future. Would recommend 2 anyone desiring a relax & comfortable getaway.

Incredible accommodations!

We just returned from staying two nights in the Courtney room. It was beautiful! The bed was very comfortable with wonderful linens, the room was exceptionally clean with a delightful jacuzzi tub. The kitchenette was perfect for our needs and the fire pit on the deck outside was wonderful. We can't wait to go back again, next time with our friends. The breakfast and pastries were phenomenal. Bruce and Sherry were delightful, friendly and very helpful hosts. Thank you!

Awesome Valentine's Day Weekend!

5 on February 18, 2014

This was our first bed and breakfast experience. We had read many reviews online and decided that we would give McKenzie house a try. McKenzie House far surpassed all of our expectations! Bruce and Sherry are wonderful hosts. We stayed in the Courtney Suite. The suite was beautifully decorated and full of wonderful touches that made you feel at home. The breakfast was phenomenal! We can't wait to go back!

Wonderful B&B

5 on February 03, 2014

I stayed for the first time at the McKenzie House this past weekend. What a wonderful relaxing B&B. The rooms were nicely decorated and spotless. The room met our expectations and them some, Sherry has thought of every last detail. Then their was the breakfast. I honestly wish I could give it more stars. The homemade pastries were the best I've ever had! Honestly, the breakfast in and of itself is worth a visit!! I'm definitely going back!

Great location

5 on August 01, 2013

Nicolle's Suite was perfect for us. It was roomy, had a kitchen, and was the only room on the top floor. Hence, it was very quiet. Bruce and Sherry were very knowledgeable of the area and the breakfast was wonderful.
