This was mine and my wife's first B and B experience, and we were completely blown away by the experience Cathy and Jerry created. Their attention to detail, both in their rooms and in their service, is world-class. Breakfast was DELICIOUS - real eggs bennedict with Hollondaise and a parfait. We chose the Carriage House, and it was spectacular. Huge...

We stayed here for our 20th anniversary and it was simply amazing. Great innkeepers, great accommodations and great food! Jerry also has some great wines that he will bring to your room, very nice touch for my wife.

Great place to get away for a relaxing stay and great breakfast! The room was comfortable, and we enjoyed the comfy bed, jacuzzi tub, and porch. The owners are super nice, and we just loved our stay! Will definitely be back!

We had a lovely stay at this clean, quiet B&B just blocks from downtown Stillwater. The Giverny Room was bright with comfortable King size bed and in-room whirlpool tub. The breakfasts in the morning were delicious, and we enjoyed meeting the other guests. We also took time to enjoy the front porch both evenings. The house and grounds were well-kept...

My wife and I stayed here the night of our wedding, and it was fantastic. We loved the carriage house because the entire house is set aside from the rest of the property. Total privacy. Beautiful room, massive tub, comfortable bed, and a wonderful (gluten-free) breakfast in the morning. Cathy and Jerry let me pick up a key a few...

We were greeted by name by Cathy when we arrived, shown to our rooms and given a brief history of the Inn (very interesting), then treated to a glass of wine with little appetizers. Cathy gave us great advice on dining that evening in Stillwater, and we ended up sitting on the porch enjoying a summer's night as well. Breakfast--scrumptious!...

This B&B was a nice weekend getaway for us. We stayed in the peacock room and it's a little smaller than other B&B's we've been to. The jacuzzi tub was really nice and has a pull out shower head. The bathroom itself was very small, a closet at one time that now has a toilet and sink. The door didn't...

Bed and breakfast was very clean. Innkeepers are super friendly. We even misplaced our key (found it later) and they were very understanding. In room fireplace and jacuzzi tub were what got us there to begin with. There is a shower head that pulls out from the tub but there isn't a shower so make sure you are aware of...
