The balcony was a nice, unexpected bonus and a great place to relax. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with great places to relax, including a hot tub. The 3-course breakfasts were...

When Deanna welcomed us we couldn't believe the number of special extras offered during our stay: the lovely outdoor seating areas surrounded by lush gardens, the hot tub (which we'll definitely use next visit!), the restful reading room, a fully...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Explorer House for two days and as soon as we pulled up to the driveway I was already wishing we could stay longer. The owners knew exactly what they were doing when they made this property a B&B. The location was perfect, a really short drive to the main street. The attention to...

Explorer House is wonderful! Deanna and Alec are terrific hosts and we unreservedly recommend their B&B! They have made it 'home away from home', their breakfasts are delicious and filling and we look forward to visiting again.

A short stay for us, and I wish we could have stayed longer. We utilized the hot tub at night and the breakfast was divine! It was three courses, not rushed and delicious. We met some wonderful people and had great conversation.
