We just returned from a two night stay at The Carleton House for our 34th anniversary. As much as we find Victorian homes fascinating and as much as we enjoyed our stay in the home, we both agree that Karen and Steve, the amazing hosts, are what puts them way over the top as Inn-keepers. They do special things for...

Where to start?! The house is beautiful! The food is amazing. The massage was great. The bathtub in the Carleton suite is incredible. Private balcony was nice to spend some time together alone.

We recently stayed at the Carleton house for one week. I can't say enough about how much we appreciated the whole experience. You could spend days looking at the historical features, furnishings and personal items from the original owners of the home or watching the birds in the beautiful gardens as the roses bloom. The soft music that's often playing...
