Wonderful B&B Experience

4.0 on October 18, 2016

Balcony Room was cozy and fine -- during a warmer time of year the balcony would be perfect. Robert was very helpful with recommendations for dinner and for local shopping.

We stayed at this bed & breakfast for 2 nights. It was fantastic! The rooms were so clean and decorated so nice! And Robert the owner is an amazing cook. The breakfasts were so good!! I requested gluten free and he was so accomodating. Robert also entertained us as we ate breakfast, really funny stories/jokes! I will return and may add additional nights onto my trip next time!!

After Eight Review

4.8 on September 28, 2016

Everything was five star. Our only negative was the Porch Room could get a little noisy in the evening if you are going to bed between 10 - 11. The people on the porch could get a little loud. It's not their fault, the tables and chairs are located just outside the outside door to the porch room next to the bed.

After Eight Bed & Breakfast----Once Again

4.0 on September 24, 2016

We returned once again to After Eight Bed & Breakfast, and as at our previous stay it still rates as the best Bed & Breakfast we ever experienced. We now feel that After Eight Bed & Breakfast is our second home when we visit this area!

my wife and I would just have to repeat all of the wonderful reviews to cover our feelings for Robert and his B&B. Words alone can't do the experience justice. The best advice we can give is "go there". You'll wish you had planned a longer stay. Ours was Sept. 12-14. Mickey & Sandy Conlee

Mr Hall was a great host. Explained everything upon arrival. The whole house was opened to us. The breakfasts were delicious and extremely comfortable atmosphere. I definite come back to place.

Friendly and charming host

The room was very clean, the breakfast was great, and Robert, our host, was fabulous. If you ever want a clean, quiet, and restful place to stay, I would employ you to visit After Eight Bed & Breakfast. Robert is such a delightful host, he made our stay even more enjoyable.

Great place to stay and relax

Easy check-in, great host, clean and comfortable corner room on the 1st floor of the B&B. Each morning our host, Robert, greeted the guests with a description of the breakfast being served after which he entertained us by telling us what he calls "little stories". Robert was the perfect travel guide (even though he never left his post). No matter where in the area (or a bit out of it), Robert was able to accommodate. Recommend staying there; we will again in the near future.

Best B & B

Had a marvelous room and breakfasts with our host Robert regaling us with stories and hilarious sales pitches for his cookbook. the cookbook has fantastic recipes with area for notations. Truly a 4 star B&B.
