Fisrt time at B&B!

This is the first time I (including my wife) have stayed at a B&B. We absolutely loved the homey feel and atmosphere! It was comfy and the owner was extremely nice and accommodating. A+!


Our Stay at the Former County Poor Farm

3.6 on April 26, 2016

My husband and I enjoyed staying out here in the country especially since we are natives of the area and remember some of the history from our childhood. Jim has done remarkable things to the place to convert it into lovely rooms and suites. The old woodwork of oak is charming. Hearing the birds in the surrounding trees was pleasant. We appreciated the generosity of having the fresh bottled water provided free of charge. Carrying those trays of food up the stairs to each room seemed like a lot of hard work whereas mingling with the other guests could be an alternative and an added benefit. All in all our stay was delightful.

This was the perfect "home base" for us while we were in Lincoln for a college graduation. We were very close to the city, but far enough away to be able to get away for some peace and quiet! A lovely inn!
