We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Elmere. The rooms were beautifully designed and it was so nice to again sleep in an extremely comfortable king size bed!!! We enjoyed having the small living room upstairs where we - 3 couples - could privately visit together for our mini reunion. Elmere is a short distance away from a beautiful town,... More

Breakfasts were wonderful! Son Mi had great suggestions for where to go and what to do during the days and for dinner. She was so friendly and helpful. The property has been lovingly restored. Beautiful!

This is such a cute place to stay! Son is so welcoming and just charming! Her little yorkie is too adorable! We had a romantic stay in the Moosehead room, fireplace perfectly placed in front of the comfortable bed and a whirlpool tub in the bathroom. Simple but delicious breakfast and she gave us lots of tips for seeing the... More

The owner is very friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were generally eggs cooked to order with toast or muffins along with either bacon or sausage. The B&B is very clean. We were not offered any juice, but coffee and tea were readily available. I think the owner would provide most anything we asked for (for example drinking glasses and ice). A... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Elmere House for part of an anniversary weekend. Excellent breakfasts, almost wish there were more options for meals here! Thompson Lake Room is small, but cozy, bathroom has plenty of space, large stall shower but no tub (however we knew that from the website before booking). Very clean room with lots of windows, the...

To start off my review, my wife and I took our first vacation with our 20-month old and were ideally seeking a two-room suite where we could set up a Pack N Play in a room separate from our bedroom. We didn't want a hotel/motel room with everything crammed into one space and the search was tough to find places... More

The place was nice and clean. The air conditioner was wonderful - so quiet. The food was good although I wish there had been real half and half for the coffee. The hostess was extremely nice and helpful. The location was great for us.

We stayed for a long weekend to celebrate our anniversary. Just fantastic. Innkeeper was just delightful. Would def stay again and highly recommend!! Sun was such a great help ( we left something there and she put it in the safe for us until we were able to retrieve it). Spotless and comfortable.
