The Duchess Suite provided two separate bedroom/lounge areas for me, my husband and 90 years old mother to share in an apartment-like setting along with a private bathroom. The...

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Hillard House Inn B&B. The house is a historic site, and the décor and ambiance reflect the time period, while maintaining cleanliness and comfort. The bedroom was gorgeous, and a relaxing retreat with 11 foot ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, and a large comfy bed. The innkeepers, Cecilia and Gordon, were...

Hillard House is a charming Victorian home with a lot of potential. It was probably once exquisite. However today its room are a bit shabby. My room had cracked walls and peeling paint. I would not stay there again.

We were surprised to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. As soon as TripAdvisor published your review today, Aug.15, we immediately inspected the room you had occupied, located the four inch strip of peeling paint along the ceiling line, repaired it and repainted it. Sometimes we miss things and we apologize. We do appreciate the 4...
