The rooms are decorated beautifully and breakfast was delicious. My husband has relatives in the area, so this was our second visit. With such great hospitality and beautiful venue, we will certainly be back.

The Silas W. Robbins house is a beautifully restored 19th century house, and a perfect place for a romantic week-end. We celebrated our anniversary there last summer, and my husband's birthday on our first visit. Each room has a unique character. We have stayed in the Jane Robbins and the Silas Robbins Rooms. These are two very different, and equally...

Dear Shireen and John, We were guests at your magnificent B&B for two days at the 6 and 7 of October. My husband and I traveled the world over; we basically prefer B&B or Relais and Chataaux, whenever possible,( instead of hotels). Most of them are beautiful with its own style and hospitality but: Your House should take the highest...
