This was our fifth stay at the Carpe Diem, and we absolutely love it. It is the escape you crave to get away from everything and reset your body and mind! We were nervous when we heard there were new owners, but other than a few changes to the decor, everything stayed the same. We've only ever gone in the...

We decided (last minute) to stay again at Carpe Diem Guesthouse. We stayed in the Emily Dickinson room and we absolutely loved it. Eddy had explained that it is one of the smallest rooms in the house and he told us he would stow our luggage. The room is small but very cozy and intimate. Just what one would expect...
