My wife and I just enjoyed a wonderful weekend stay. Penny could not have been nicer and more accommodating. She made us a great breakfast every morning. They are also located a short walk from all the Restaraunts and tasting rooms downtown. Home is located in a very picturesque neighborhood. Cannot say enough nice things about our stay.

We really enjoyed our stay. Our room was spacious and comfortably appointed. The garden seating area was most pleasant. Breakfast was great. The French toast with berries and cream cheese was delicious. Location is convenient to downtown. Thanks, Penny.

We stayed here over fall release weekend. Penny is a wonderful host, and her breakfasts are awesome. It's really close to the downtown area and in driving distance to many wineries. The rooms are charming, thoughtfully decorated and very clean. We enjoyed our short stay here.

The Maxwell House is ideally situated. One can walk to many tasting rooms and to the best restaurants in town. Our room was very comfortable and nicely furnished. Penny is an excellent cook. The breakfasts were delicious. We lingered long there over coffee.
