Our family treated ourselves to a stay at this B&B as part of our Christmas celebration. We rented all three rooms and were not disappointed. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The hosts were gracious and helpful. And the food was terrific.

We will go back in an instant. The house was impeccable, the room was roomy and spotlessly clean. Dietmar warmly welcomed us, and explained everything we were to expect. As described in all the other reviews, Marion's breakfast was outstanding! 5 star! Jay and Alison
