We had a wonderful time at Embassy Circle Guest House. The home itself was beautiful, yet homey, and immaculate. We were warmly welcomed when we arrived and greeted each day with a delicious breakfast and very interesting conversation. The owners, Laura and Raymond, made sure our every need was met. We will go back in a heartbeat!

Embassy Circle is the most welcoming, comfortable b&b we've ever stayed in. Everything was just so perfect.

I ended up at the Embassy Circle Guest House by chance when the hotel where I originally planned on staying ran out of rooms.

Our room was thoughtfully decorated; the bed was so comfortable! Breakfast around the common dining table was a highlight, affording the opportunity to meet other guests. Laura and Raymond, the innkeepers, were helpful with advice and suggestions, without being intrusive. A most appreciated touch was the wine offered in the afternoon. The inn's location, a few blocks from the DuPont... More
