The innkeepers are so kind and friendly! We loved their stories about the inn and their world travels! We loved our romantic stay at the Carriage House and picked up decorating ideas we want to bring to our own home. It was a lovely 2-day stay!

Relaxing and quiet stay

The room was clean and comfy, but the breakfasts were AMAZING. Morning chats with the owners were an added bonus. Great stay!

This was a very nice bed and breakfast. The only thing I would warn people about is that it is in the middle of town and right next to the train tracks. The train went by the house twice in the middle of the night. There is nothing the innkeepers can do about this but would have been nice to know. Also, we did not get to choose our meal. I assumed (although I realize it is never good to assume) that we would arrive for breakfast and we would get to choose our dining option. But when we got there, they set the main entree down in front of us. Although it was good, it was not what I was hoping to eat from their online breakfast menu. Otherwise this is a very nice bed and breakfast and would recommend to other people.

Southern Hospitality at its best!

My daughters and I had an amazing experience. We felt welcomed and at home by the innkeeper and Taylor the dog. It was very hard to leave. Our rooms were wonderfully comfortable and spotlessly clean. Our evening spent in the large living room playing cards and chatting with the innkeeper were memorable and made us feel right at home. The only downside, not with The Dickey House but with Marshfield is the lack of dinning options and only one establishment serves any kind of alcohol, the Mexican restaurant. We would definitely come back!

Loved it! Will stay again!

Wonderful hosts! It was such a pleasant relaxing stay in the middle of a long drive. The food was amazing, and the room was lovely. If I drive through there again, I would love to stay there.

Quiet spot with lovely gardens............

We enjoyed our experience here. It was quiet and away from the every day routine. The breakfast experience was delicious and we enjoyed getting to know other travelers. The conversation was excellent and the hosts were delightful. LDS

Love this place but...

We came up for a get away weekend and the night we got there my wife came down with appendicitis. We spent most of the weekend in the hospital. I didn't have heart to ask for some kind of refund and they didn't offer. It's a business and I understand they could not have rented our room back out on such short notice. The staff was very sympathetic and I would definitely go back again when we can save up to make it happen. I would still recommend it to others.

Very Nice, Relaxing Stay

We stayed one night at The Dickey House, in the Carriage House, and we very much enjoyed our stay. The Carriage House was nicely decorated and had all necessary amenities, including a very nice jetted tub for two. Breakfast was outstanding and ready promptly at 9 AM, as requested. The bed, both mattress and pillows, was very comfortable. One thing we particularly liked was that the Carriage House is a stand-alone unit and as such we didn't have to worry that we were disturbing anyone by running the jetted tub "too late", or by getting up too early (as I have to do at 4:15 AM every morning in order to do some work for my job.) There were a few things that should be noted, not deal-breakers by any means, but worth mentioning: the toilet portion of the bathroom is very small, and for a large person it's kind of a tight fit; for someone who has to do any type of work while on the road, the lack of a desk-height work surface is inconvenient (there is a beautiful coffee table, but it's really too low to try to do work on); and lastly, the cottage is perhaps no more than about 40 feet from an operating train track, and because the track intersects the street right at the start of the property, including a gated crossing, whenever a train goes through it sounds its horn a number of times. Unfortunately, the trains go through well into the wee hours of the morning (we heard three the night we were there) and they're pretty much impossible to sleep through. The upside was that the bed and surroundings were so comfortable we had little trouble falling right back to sleep once the train moved through. These things, however, in no way even came close to overshadowing the upsides to our stay. We enjoyed the Dickey House, and Larry's and Michaelene's hospitality, and will definitely return.

A lovely retreat...

From the sunny porch off our rooms, to the comfort and peace of the whole second floor to the exceptional breakfast, it was the perfect setting for a reunion of two sisters. We will return!
