It’s our experience from staying in a hundred B and B’s that it’s nice to learn about the area and receive tips on what to see and do, but it’s more important to be able to freely and completely enjoy the setting. We’ll pretty much leave you alone unless you have questions or need help. There’s a lot of history here.
We'll provide a continental breakfast.
There are four chickens roaming around the property: Margaret, Mabel, Myrtle, and Tailfeathers. Local laws require dogs to be on a leash.
