Our all time favorite!

We've visited here a couple of times over the years and this continues to be our favorite B&B. The master suite is beautiful and all the woodwork and stain glass throughout the house is stunning. Doug and Louise are absolutely the best! Super friendly and Louise's breakfast is a memorable experience in a good way. You certainly won't go wrong staying here! Thanks Doug & Louise for another great stay. Larry & Fawn from Colo.

WOW!!! Wonderful and Spectacular. You will love Cornerstone Victorian B&B and the hosts Doug and Louise

I have traveled on over 80 international trips around the world and stayed in very many places both domestic and abroad. I can easily say that Cornerstone Victorian B&B is one of the best and most favorite places I have ever stayed at. Aside from the breathtakingly beautiful Victorian home, and five course spectacular breakfast, is the welcoming and friendliness of the host/owners Doug and Louise that will make your stay over the top. I have often said that there are two professions you don't want to be in if you don't love people (Ministry or Medicine) . . . well now, I need to add B&B to my list of professions to avoid if you don’t love interaction with people. As you get to know Doug and Louise, you will see that they absolutely love people and are some of the most wonderful and humble servants you will ever met. You will not regret staying at Cornerstone Victorian B&B. If I could rate it higher than 5 stars I would.

This Bed and Breakfast Inn is fabulous. The moment you step inside, you feel warmly welcomed by Doug and Louise. And their attention to detail makes for a very comfortable stay. Each 5 course breakfast is outstanding. Pay them a visit and I assure you, you will not be disappointed. In fact, you will want to go back. As do we.

The best B&B

5 on October 15, 2015

Doug and Louise are the best hosts and this B&B is probably the nicest one we have visited. The breakfasts are amazing and you get 5 courses! Louise is a fantastic chef. We were so impressed. The rooms were great and so clean and quiet. Everything was the best!

We're so lucky to have found this place!

We found The Cornerstone while searching the internet for a last minute get-a-way vacation. It looked like the place was nice and the rates were reasonable, so we gave it a shot. It was much more than expected. Doug is a gentleman, always looking out for his guests comfort and Louise is a fantastic cook, serving up outstanding and creative breakfasts every day. The house is spectacular. It's tastefully appointed with antiques and looks period correct. Doug and Louise do most of the maintenance themselves and are very good at it. Lovely gardens and grounds as well. We plan on coming back soon!

What a Blessed place to stay!!!!!

My wife and I have been staying at The Cornerstone every year for seven years. Doug and Louise are by far the most gracious, kind, and attentive hosts we have ever encountered. Their care for the rooms and the guests are superior to any place we have ever stayed. Louise's cooking is something to be remembered and never missed. To experience the ambiance of the Victorian Age and slow down to a state of complete relaxation, this is the place to stay. Doug and Louise always have an uplifting countenance about them and have a gift of brightening up anyone's day with there ready laughter and broad smiles. Pastor Steve and Angela Carpenter

Amazing !

By far the best place my husband and I have ever stayed! We cant say enough good things about this home and Louise and Doug. From the moment we arrived to the hugs on the way home. Our room was amazingly clean. Our breakfasts were amazing. There was so much food for breakfast we didn't eat lunch any of the 3 days we were there. The nightly deserts were great too ! You can make your own coffee and tea anytime and you have a choice of pop or water in the 24 hour complimentary frig. The only thing that would make this place more awesome is if they offered dinner. I know that would be amazing too. Thanks for an awesome stay. Joe & Megan

Most Amazing B&B on the East Coast

5 on January 27, 2015

My wife and I have been going to B&Bs for decades. We have been going to Doug and Louise's for many years and when we need a relaxing get away where everything will be taken care of and you are sitting in the lap of luxury there is no other choice besides the Cornerstone Victorian. I would have said it was the best B&B in the United States but unfortunately I have yet to make it to the West Coast so it is not fair. Although I would consider it very difficult for anybody to match this place. Even though we have stayed with Doug and Louise many times we can not remember ever having the same course twice. For those of you who have never been you have to realize that Louise serves a 5 course breakfast which means that if we have staying with them 10 times that is at 50 different courses. AMAZING. Doug and Louise set the bar by which all other B&Bs need to be measured.

Romantic Relaxing Perfect Getaway!

This Victorian Bed & Breakfast is superb! Louise and Doug are the most gracious hosts. The 5 course breakfasts prepared by Louise are not only a work of art but a delicacy! Every minute detail to make your weekend perfect has been attended to! The home is gorgeous and so beautifully decorated! We cannot wait to go back! Mark and Tammy

Don't pass this place by!
