Clean, quiet, hospitable and beautiful inside and out. The care and food each day was over the top. A+ service. We will bring our guests here for repeat business for sure. Who knows, I might return for a little quiet retreat myself one day :) Lastly, thank you for all the tips, advice, and help connecting us in order for us to have a successful relocation here to Indiana. Hopefully we left a sweet impression as well. You have blessed us above and beyond the typical B&B experience. I count you as one of the many blessings God has lead us to along the way. Sincerely, Tammy, Matt, Beth, Olivia, & Isabelle
