Great Weekend Getaway!

5 on January 20, 2017

We totally enjoyed our getaway weekend in the beautiful Catherine Caldwell room. It is a perfect blending of antique and modern amenities. The 2 person jacuzzi was very relaxing, as was the whole atmosphere in this house. The breakfast was delicious both days. We will definitely be return guests.


Inviting & Comfortable

5 on January 11, 2017

We had a wonderful stay at the Caldwell House! The rooms are inviting and comfortable and breakfast was delicious! The B&B owners are so friendly and accommodating and the grounds are beautiful. Lots of fun things to do in the area as well - we ate lunch and did a tasting at one of the local wineries!


Rock of Cashel room just too loud

4.0 on January 01, 2017

This is our second stay, and although there were some noise issues during our last stay we gave the Rock of Cashel room another shot because it really is so lovely with the fireplace and soaking tub. Unfortunately I think we will be giving up on the room. Maybe as we get older, we get more sensitive, but this year there was a crying baby for part of an afternoon, followed by someone singing to that baby ..... while we were trying to nap. It was incredibly loud. As always, the room was perfect, clean, and comfy. Although the additional gadgets (wine cooler and ice maker) give off bright lights and make a bit of noise at night. The hosts are very lovely and the food was pretty good. The price is simply too high to stay again, given the location and quality of construction, which leads to not such great sleep with the room upstairs occupied and the trucks rambling by all hours of the night. We may try a different room or maybe a different location next time.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your constructive comments. We will soon be adding a "second" ceiling lined with sound proofing material to deal with the situation in the Cashel Room. Before giving up on us, please consider one of the other 13 room, where noise has never been mentioned as an issue. We strive to provide a superior experience for our guests and are disappointed that we did not meet your expectations. We promise we'll do better! Happy New Year and we hope to see you again soon,

You won't be at all disappointed and will wish you could stay longer. Stayed in the Butter Hill Room on October 27. Rooms are extremely comfortable, with each having an I-Pad, slippers and robe. Place is beautiful, service great and friendly and the common kitchen area with snacks and drinks makes the place feel like home. Plenty to do in the area. John and Dena, Keep up the great work.
