Married There... Was a Dream

5 on November 04, 2017

We got married there in December of 2012. PERFECT place for a wedding! Owners were wonderful; food was delicious; accommodation were top-notch; and decoration were elegant!!! We have such wonderful memories there!!! The icing on the cake was the value. The owners live what they do; they’re definitely not trying to squeeze every penny out of us. Reasonable is an understatement. Just great people and wonderful B & B!

Great Getaway

We went for my wife's birthday so we could just get away from everything that life has been throwing at us and we forgot about all of it as we sat outside and looked off the bluff

A fabulous Inn

We have stayed in several B&Bs all over the United States and this is the cleanest one of all. The view is fantastic. Can't imagine the beauty in the Fall of the year. The Inn is very quiet. Breakfast was very nice. Mike made us feel like we were at home.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your very kind review! We so appreciate hosting such wonderful guests in our "home." Please come on back for the fabulous fall colors!

Great Getaway Weekend

4.2 on August 23, 2017

Our family just enjoyed a wonderful "eclipse weekend" at the Garden Inn at Bee Rock. Although the Inn was completely full and busy, Mike and Mirtha went out of their way to extend hospitality and accommodate every guest who had special request to make their stay the most enjoyable. Our room was very nice and clean as well as the rest of the Inn. This was our second visit. We will definitely return and recommend to others!

A unique total experience!

My son Daniel & I just had three remarkable days and nights at the Garden Inn B & B. We made new friends with the most wonderful hosts/owners, we discovered areas we never knew existed and we explored spectacular nature that was right on our doorstep... including the experience of the Total Solar Eclipse that was literally out of this world! Access to the Bee Rock Outlook was a thrill and the views always awe inspiring no matter what time of day. Sunrise was incredible! The Garden Inn has features that are so unexpected and so unique. We felt so at home and welcomed! Even though it was busy due to the eclipse, Mike & Mirtha took care of all of their guests in the most cordial and thoughtful way and made sure everyone was comfortable. They are meticulous about housekeeping and every little detail is covered. I truly hope I can get back there someday. Thank you so much for your superb hospitality! Sandy de L :-)

Innkeeper Response
Dear Sandy and Daniel, Thank you for being such wonderful guests and absolutely great eclipsers!! Conversations with you were enchanting and we so wish you all the best in the future. Hope that you make it back before the next total eclipse!!!
