My first stay at this B&B was 11 years ago where Kent and Diane were the owners.

We had a great stay, it was so relaxing. Our breakfasts were absolutely delicious. Fresh baked foods, lots of fruit, and great entrees. We stayed in the English Room which we loved. The bed was comfortable, each room had its own Keurig machine, plus a few snacks and beverages. The location was just a couple blocks from the Festival Theatre,...
