Thanks for making us your first bed and breakfast experience and for celebrating your birthday with us! We're a perfect choice for first-timers as we've done away with all the doilies, crazy wallpaper, lace, babydolls, and overbearing innkeepers! We've been able to replace it with elegant decor that reflects as opposed to replicates the history of the house, we've highlighted...
