Excellent Stay

5 on May 06, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Edith Thomas' Bitter Sweet B&B. Edith is such a generous, dynamic lady who welcomed us and made us feel just like a family member. Our room was very spacious with a porch and a fire place. I was also able to view the other beautifully decorated rooms. Each had a warm feeling and were bright and sunny! This B & B is extremely tranquil on 150 acres. Our bed was very comfortable and we had the quietest sleep we ever had! Edith's breakfasts are home made with ORGANIC eggs from the local farmer. There is a delicious difference! Edith offered all we could want and was a wonderful hostess! We give this place our best rating...we have stayed in many, many B & B's and because of Edith's knowledge and hospitality and love, we WILL return soon. This place is wonderfully located for its tranquility and nearness to all.
