Spotlessly clean, welcoming without being intrusive, gracious and comfortable. I've stayed here many times for multiple nights over the course of the past two years while visiting family in the area and always looks forward to return visits. And the breakfasts are out of this world!

Breakfast is an important meal. We want our guests to enjoy their food and it is our pleasure to serve up some hearty "vittles"! In reality, we try to cook with fresh and local produce, using healthy alternatives to fats and sugars. Some of our recipes can be found on our website. More
