Spent the weekend with friends enjoying the fall colors and quilting in the meeting room and spectaular meals in the common dining room. Cannot say enough about Sharon's cooking! Rooms are very comfortable and immaculately clean. The location is rural and very scenic -- a great getaway. Limited cell service which is a plus to me!

I've stayed at many inns throughout the years and this was by far one of the best I've encountered. The rooms were spotless, and carefully thought out balancing the cozy and charming nature of most inns with the desire for individual privacy. The food was absolutely wonderful....taking advantage of many organic and local seasonal options, yet very creative...the right balance... More

I recently stayed at the inn for a getaway weekend. The setting is beautiful and affords one peace and quiet and time for reflection. The food was amazing and lived up to its local billing. I had read about the inn in the cadillac news where the writer had raved about the food--I can see why. I travel frequently on... More

I enjoyed the setting of this beautiful inn however awoke in the morning to find I was covered with bug bites! I pulled back the sheets and found a few insects and dark spots (fecal spots). I was disgusted and went to speak with the inn owners. The three ladies looked at me like I was nuts. Needless to say,... More

We just recently stayed at the Inn about 2 weeks ago and I've never felt so misstreated in my whole life. First of all the 3 old women that live there, (yes, reside at the Inn) are always around keeping an eye on you. I felt like I was in Kingergarden. At one point I wanted to watch a little... More

I was part of a wedding party that rented the entire B & B and stayed there for three nights. The place is incredibly beautiful and a hidden gem in the area. The first few nights were fine, with a nice breakfast each day. The night of the wedding we had a gathering at the sheltered area where the wedding... More
