if you are looking for a very special Bed & Breakfast / Hotel, Carter House Inn is it! A very warm-welcoming place. I have been coming here for years and have never been disappointed. Even an one-night stay is a mini vacation. Mister D.

My fiance stayed at the Carter House to recover after a raucous wedding of college friends. It was the perfect place to relax in true comfort.

Despite a busy hotel weekend in Eureka, we were able to find a room in one of this hotel's cottage properties (Bell Cottage).
