Once again, our annual trip to Elam Biggs, (this time for our 5th Anniv) was marvelous...Peter is always the consummate host! We always feel as if we have come home! "Our" room is the large Empire room up front.Elam Biggs is very centrally located and you can easily walk everywhere.

Elam Biggs is a wonderful, delightful, relaxing experience! The house is beautiful, the rooms are tastefully decorated and full of interesting and fun items and pictures. It is spotlessly clean, welcoming and comfortable. Peter and Barbara are generous, friendly and accommodating. They make you feel like family from the moment you arrive. We love everything everyone else has already said... More

This was one of the most comfortable experiences ever with a B&B. The house is just beautiful. The children had a fantastic time with the magician at breakfast time and we very much felt at home. The rooms are decorated so beautifully with lots of white lights, and were very tidy. They made our vacation most memorable. The decorations brought... More

This house was noisy and we could not sleep well. Stairs are steep and difficult to navigate. The room was not very clean and had a musty smell. Small bathroom with multiple stains. Food was just some sweet glop that was not healty or tasty.
