We go here often and it is a quiet place with excellent food. It is a perfect retreat. Sit on the bank of the river and watch nature.

I have stayed here several times and had the same inviting warm welcome I had before. This time was a last minute booking with dinner reservations. We stayed in Room #1 and it was comfortable overlooking backyard area. Dinner was superb with great choices and service was great. They even made a fruit plate for my husband in place of... More

You can bring you own wine and no corking fee is charged...It is not required that you stay at the Inn to have dinner, but... More

If you want a special place to go with superb food, impeccable service, and unmatched scenery, this is your place. We have been there many times, and we have yet to have a bad meal, or even a part of a bad meal. In fact, since it is expensive for us, we only go on special occasions. We do not... More

When I suggest a B&B to my husband, he asks, "Is it like that one by the river with the big tree?" If it is, he wants to go. If it's not, I have some convincing to do. Comfort and relaxation are the two words that come to mind when I think of this place. We really enjoyed just being... More
