We felt like we were at home with Brad & Keith. This B&B is a beautiful must go to if you are in the area. We decided to visit purely on a whim and are so glad that we did. The beautiful house was cozy and the hosts amazing along with the food.

We enjoyed our stay. The innkeepers Brad and Keith are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was amazing. The free cookies in the living room were also delicious. We stayed in "the Clove". The room was beautiful, comfortable and clean. I loved the old tub.
