Great food Great place

We stayed here for the week-end so parents week-end would be easy. We were met by Barbara Hayes the owner and Inn keeper, what a great gal. Received a tour of the house and facilities. Beautiful place. Morning breakfast was a bouquet of great breakfast goodies. Dr John did the cooking and we all enjoyed stories of the farm. Then we were informed of roads to to used for good timely travel and beautiful views. If you select this B&B for a stay you will be treated as though you are really important and some one cares that you get around safely and happily.

Lovely bit of country

Right in the middle of a farm, very quiet. We especially loved the chiminea. Since the owners don't live there, this would be a great place to rent the whole house for a family getaway.
