This is a lovely B&B situated on the corner of a restful, impressive garden full of water features, sculptures, plants and greenery.With an eye to the smallest of details, our helpful hosts made sure our accommodations lacked for nothing.Our king bed was most comfortable.

We enjoyed a fabulous stay here. Priscilla was friendly and helpful. She recommended the Woodpecker for dinner...great choice. Room was clean, comfy and all the touches were evident. Breakfast was delightful and was a perfect ending to a great stay. We will definitely be back and will tell all our friends about this gem.

Combination of peace and beauty. Exquisitely remodeled heritage building, very clean and comfortable rooms and a picturesque backyard. Priscilla's warmth and friendliness made this the best home away from home vacation for us. Will definitely go back.

This was my first B&B experience and I have to say it might be hard to top. The owner, Priscilla, was great. Very friendly, accommodating to your stay (we came in very late both nights), and of course the breakfasts were incredible. Perfect way to start a day. The service, food, and just the whole charm of the place is...

This bed and breakfast is fantastic in every way. The home and grounds are beautiful. The bedroom and ensuite bath are luxurious and comfortable. Every need is provided for from bathrobes to Kuerig coffee maker to sitting areas. The breakfast started with fresh berries and some of the best coffee we've ever had and went on to a delicious breakfast...
