Gorgeous, relaxing, comfortable, calming, and welcoming. Those are the words I would use to describe Thistletop. We came tired and worn. We left rejuvenated and happy. The house is a Braxton Dixon design of perfection. Every room is designed to each square inch to be amazing. In addition to the amazing architecture and design, Mary Jane and Fred have set... More

I agree with Jessica L: this may be the best BnB we've stayed: The beauty of the architecture, materials and details and the warmth of the hosts are both excessively impressive. About 15 min from town center, and in a residential area, so go for the peace and respite. We feel lucky to have the experience and will definitely return.
