My sister and I stayed here for a weekend in July. It is truly a charming place, well decorated with mementos from Suzan and Ed's travels. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and Suzan and Ed were overwhelmingly gracious, serving a beautiful formal breakfast in the mornings and

The room and bathrooms are very spacious and comfortable. The property is immaculate. but the best part is that Ed and Suzan treat you like royalty and cater you. The breakfasts are the best and Suzan is a very good cook. Breakfast and tea are served on fine bone china.

My goodness! What a lovely review. Thank you so very much. We thoroughly enjoyed your visit. One of the big benefits of having a B&B is the friendships made and the interesting people who stay and share their life experiences with us. I called Mary Jo Monte who is with “The Pedal Pushers” and I know she will be getting in touch with you concerning biking trails and their web site with videos. Please give Bob our best and do come again! Suzan
