Our lodging, food and company was outstanding. You could not have ask for better service... We even took advantage of a message and it was awesome as well. The dinning room was made into a quilters Heaven. We had our own tables, lighting, we had group ironing boards and cutting tables... Thank you Farmers Guest House.

Went on a mother/daughter get-away weekend and her and I had a great time. Food was great, Susan and Don were wonderful hosts and Farmer Guests House was very accommodating. Can't wait to go back again.

Everyone was so hospitable and the breakfasts were amazing! Wine time was a great time to relax and prep for dinner. Our hosts were so laid back that it felt as if we were frequent customers! We will definitely be back!

Room and service were great, but the food took it over the top! I can't say enough about the meals we were served, especially breakfasts. This was my first time to area, and was happily surprised by the unique city. Had a wonderful stay.

My husband and I stayed at Farmer's Guest House this past weekend, a several times return trip for us. This is the only B&B we will stay at when we're in town. It is a delightful facility and the owners, Susan and Don, are the most gracious hosts anyone could want. You're made to feel like you're family and right...

We decided to go to Farmer's Guest House for our 35th Anniversary as we had never stayed at a bed and breakfast before. We stayed in the Julia Suite which was named after President Grant's wife.

So glad you enjoyed your 35th anniversary celebration! Our 150 year old historic inn is fully equipped with all the modern conveniences for today's traveler - that is, except for an elevator. With 12 foot ceilings that makes for 20 steps up our grand front staircase to get to most of the rooms. But, take heart, we will fortify you...
