Gillian was such a delight and she is quite the cook. You must try the quiche! My room was spacious and very comfortable. The housekeeper went above and beyond to help me. I would recommend this to anyone!

Plan to stay more than one night. Lots to do nearby. Inn is wonderful, the owners great and the breakfasts alone are worth the trip. We planned to stay two nights but stayed a third night. Would absolutely return.

Four of us stayed at the Inn this past weekend for two nights. We arrived and easily parked around back. Gillian met us at the door and provided a warm welcome. The rooms - Diamond and Helena, both upstairs - were well appointed, comfortable, and quiet. Everything in the rooms worked as expected - i.e. remote, a/c, lights, bath/shower. Breakfast...

This restored historic inn has all the charm of the past, but with modern comforts and stylishly decorated rooms. The friendly owners offered good suggestions as where to visit and eat locally, and the best part of all was an amazing, freshly cooked breakfast. I would definitely come back and recommend this place.

Stayed here with some friends in the Palisades room I believe- which was at the front of the house. It was very hot, and we had the air on all night and it was incredibly noisy. the location is very close to walk downtown, which was great, but then since it was at the intersection of the 2 main roads,...

Gillian was a wonderful host and prepared some of the finest breakfasts I have ever had at a B&B. I was very happy to learn that in the near future she is in fact publishing a cookbook with many of these recipes. I will be one of the first to buy it. Our room was lovely. The bed was comfy...

Charming B&B- cozy accommodations. Location right at the intersection of 2 major roads with loud traffic. Did not realize we could open the windows so the AC was on all night and was very loud. Host was very nice and served a fabulous breakfast. Advertised champagne breakfast we needed to ask for and open ourselves. The house is charming and...

We have found that most people coming to this lovely valley are happy and find things to be happy about, some are miserable and find things that confirm how they feel inside. We find the criticisms and the very low ratings from this one night stay reviewer more a reflection of her than us. It seems we would be damned...
