Comfortable large rooms with large bathrooms, showers, tubs, closets, desks, internet and comfortable beds. Simply outstanding! Each night is followed by Jane's wonderful homemade breakfast, excellent, tasty food. Highly recommended (I would give it ten stars if they were available.)

We were in town for graduation and this is located very close to campus. The hostess was absolutely wonderful and accommodated all of our needs. Breakfast was amazing as well as the rooms were very clean and inviting. Wish we would have discovered it sooner. Would definitely stay there again!
