Needed a last minute relaxing getaway and By the Side of the Road delivered. The room was very clean, very comfortable and very quiet. The breakfast was amazing as well. The hosts are very attentive if you need them to be but very conscious of your privacy as well. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

I booked this BnB for my girlfriend and I the day before we stayed here. Our previous plans had fallen through but both still wanted to get away for the weekend. We both were extremely pleased with this bed and breakfast and plan on coming back to try out the other cottages. We have already recommended this place to friends...

We had a late arrival therefore we were unable to say in the Manor House. Dennis upgraded us to a cottage, the Mountain Laurel and didn't charge a penny extra. As we were told, an envelope awaited us in the door jamb with the four digit code necessary to enter. Soft music was playing, just enough lights were on and...

Our suite had top quality furnishings and amenities, a to-die-for shower, and nice balcony overlooking the pond. Breakfast - delivered each morning in a picnic basket - was always delicious. Visit bluestone vineyard and have a free tasting as guests of this B&B. All around a lovely stay and very accommodating hosts.

For two tired parents, this was a perfect getaway. We booked the Water Lily Suite at last minute, and it was just what we needed. A relaxing and comfortable room, beautiful views from the porch of the pond, and a delightful rain shower added to the getaway weekend. We enjoyed our breakfast delivered to the door each morning, and the...

Positives: The suite was amazing, very comfortable bedding, and the view outside the B&B was beautiful, overlooking a pond. It was also very close to downtown and great eateries. There was also an outdoor market going on that morning so we stopped by. Although it's a small area, there is plenty to do during the day. I also loved that...

So much better than a hotel/motel. Porch swing was so relaxing. The only problem was getting up and down the front porch stairs. Thankfully my room was on the first floor. The bed was the most comfortable I've ever slept in.

We had a very relaxing stay, the Bergey Cottage was very romantic. The furnishings were very nice and the pictures didn't do it justice. We loved the fireplace in the wall between the bathroom and bedroom and the jet tub was quite large and very romantic.

This was our first stay at a B&B, an experience we'll not soon forget and one we will certainly repeat. We stayed in the 1790 Suite, which was the perfect setting for celebrating our 20th anniversary! You can browse the accommodations on the site, so we'll focus on our experience and how we felt instead. The suite was historic, warm,...

This is a high end Bed and Breakfast. We stayed in a cottage and it was lovely. They think of everything from bath salts for the whirlpool tub to a delicious hot breakfast. Wonderful experience and a relaxing get a way!
