The owners knew exactly what they were doing when they made this property a B&B. The location was perfect, a really short drive to the main street. The attention to...

Explorer House is wonderful! Deanna and Alec are terrific hosts and we unreservedly recommend their B&B! They have made it 'home away from home', their breakfasts are delicious and filling and we look forward to visiting again.

A short stay for us, and I wish we could have stayed longer. We utilized the hot tub at night and the breakfast was divine! It was three courses, not rushed and delicious. We met some wonderful people and had great conversation.
