Featured in Midwest Living & Country Sampler, this Victorian B & B offers a lovely downstairs parlor, shaded porch swing, quiet gazebo for tea or coffee & gift shop. The Flower Patch swirls with creative energy. There’s so much to see. Lynn, the Artist in Residence, displays framed porcelain art and watercolors throughout the house. Every room abounds with floral arrangements, crafts, curios and family memorabilia. With floral rugs, potted plans and displays of fresh and dried flowers, it’s always spring at the bed & breakfast. Guests and non-guest alike are welcome to tour the backyard garden, where the Harshbargers grow the herbs used in their epicurean masterpieces.
