Breakfast was outstanding - elegant, well done, and John even offered me gluten free French toast which was such an unexpected surprise and delicious! The atmosphere was just what my husband and I needed, and this was our...

We visited on May 31 and had a wonderful time. What a great B&B! The owner has made this an elegant and comfortable place. The grounds are beautiful, with flowers, landscaping and tall stately pine and cedar trees. A walkway leads down to a shaded sitting area next to a babbling brook. The inn has a number of intimate outdoor...

Last week we spent two fabulous nights at the Rainbow Inn. The B&B was amazing down to the smallest appointments both in our rooms and the large family room area provided to all guests.

We made an unexpected trip. The innkeeper, John, was excellent from the minute we first called to when we departed. John was extremely accommodating. For example, he asked about dietary restrictions, which we didn't expect, & provided two excellent breakfasts following our needs. He also was able to provide us information on hiking since we weren't able to research trails...
