Sandra is an exceptional host, from her efficient handling of our reservation to the fabulous breakfast others have raved about. It is evident that she really cares about the quality of the premises and the service she provides. The house has a... More

This is one of the best B &B's we have experienced. Wonderful hospitality, accommodations and food, and superb customer service in a meticulously restored Queen Anne Victorian home. From the moment we stepped inside we were treated with the utmost kindness Sandra’s breakfasts are legendary and not to be missed. Her scones are to die for. Sandra (the owner) could... More

We had a great stay at the Henry Whipple House. The house has lots of charm, and Sandra (the owner) made us feel at home. We stayed in the Guest Room, which had a very comfortable king bed and three large windows allowing lots of natural light. We had breakfast downstairs both mornings, and it was delicious. Very gourmet. We... More

The Henry Whipple House is a beautiful and comfortable bed and breakfast. Sandra is a wonderful host who really focuses on each person's needs. Every morning we had heard of her famous breakfast but the actual breakfast out did what we had even expected.

I love this place. Sandra has created a wonderful spot ... welcoming us back, great breakfasts, easy and comfortable to stay, little things that make a difference like cookies, cold drinks and tea always available. She does a great job being 'green' in a way that makes you want to do more. Thanks!!
