Jen and Dan are wonderful hosts who have found a way to implement necessary Covid protections while maintaining the B&B vibe. The Lamplighter is a beautiful and warm place to stay. We've stayed there three times and plan on returning again.

Our hosts were very kind and accommodating! Our room was very comfortable and I appreciated the historic feel with the up to date features. Dan and Jen clearly put a lot of thought into each guest’s stay. I would definitely come back! They also gave helpful tips for places to eat in the area and we really enjoyed the town!

Great location, beautiful house, clean, comfy, and nice! We stayed in the Crosby fireplace room which was perfect for our romantic getaway. The innkeepers were very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was delicious and filling! We hope to return.

What a wonderful few nights we have just enjoyed at The Lamplighter. The Inn is truly beautiful and our hosts Jen and Dan could not have been more welcoming or friendly. We felt "at home" the moment we stepped through the door and left feeling "part of the family" We stayed in the Monet Room which was very comfortable with pretty decor and an amazing shower. During these difficult, uncertain times we felt completely safe with every precaution being taken. Oh, did I mention the breakfasts, delicious, as were the cookies and fudge. We sincerely hope to visit again and wish Jen and Dan continued success. Thank you both.
