Well done! These ladies have done a great job creating a beautiful b&b. They know the history of their home 200 plus year old home and are eager to share it. Our room was so special with all we could need and more. Do yourself a favor and stay here. The breakfast was amazing too.

What a magnificent Bed and Breakfast! The grounds are lovely, the inn, filled with antiques is charming, and the innkeepers are warm and friendly and have thought of everything to make sure their guests are cared for. And, the breakfast was one of the most delicious meals I've had. This Bed and Breakfast is a total standout for excellence.

This early 19th century B&B is our favorite place to stay when we are visiting the area. Innkeepers Germaine and Cathy are warm, gracious and wonderfully accommodating. The bedrooms and common areas are comfortable and beautifully appointed in keeping with its colonial charm. The breakfasts are fabulous – as delicious as they are ample.

In my recent family history research visit to New England I had the pleasure of being the only guest at the Daniel Rust House (off season/mid-week). Germaine was delightful, friendly and knowledgeable of the history of the house. The house definitely has it's own "personality". There is an obvious pride of ownership and maintenance of the property. I arrived to...

The Daniel Rust House was the highlight of our East coast college tour. This is an original home from 1731 which retains the charm and character of the original which served as tavern, inn and likely housed slaves on the underground railroad. The owners are wonderful hosts and filled us in on all of the interesting facts about the house...

My husband and I had a lovely stay at the Daniel Rust House. Cathy and Germaine were both so warm and welcoming when we arrived and showed us to our room, the Mary Rose Room.

We absolutely loved this quaint bed and breakfast. This was our first visit but will certainly not be our last. The house has a real sense of authenticity and warmth.
