1884 Wildwood Bed and Breakfast
Table Of Contents
As you drive up, you will see Wildwood sitting on a beautiful acre lot set back from Hwy 7 (Park Avenue), nestled in among trees taller than the house. We have plenty of off-street parking and a circle drive to the front which is convenient for unloading luggage.
Well, come on in! The beauty of the Rembrandt Reception Hall will take your breath away! Having been designed to serve as a ballroom for special occasions, the room is very open and large, with a magnificent ornate cherry staircase, intricately carved fireplace mantel and two gorgeous stained glass windows. The main level of the house is 2300 sq. ft. and includes the Rembrandt Reception Hall, Gentlemen's Parlor, Ladies' Parlor, Formal Dining, Old Kitchen, Original Butler's Pantry and a downstairs half bath. These rooms are all common areas for our guests to enjoy. You have lots of extra space for relaxing, in addition to your room.
Entering the front door, you will hear soft music in the background, and smell a slight delicious scent of vanilla and orange.
After check-in you may want to visit our Butler's Pantry, alias "The Snack Room". Here we keep home-baked goodies, bottled water, sodas, popcorn, chips, etc...This is also where you will find the ice machine, ice buckets, refrigerator and microwave. Or, in the main dining room, you can visit the coffee bar for a cup of gourmet coffee, hot tea, or hot chocolate anytime during your visit. All snacks are included in the room rates. Steal a brownie, and then wander around outside and enjoy the grounds and the porches with wicker furniture.
If you aren't ready to go out on the town quite yet, you may want to get comfy on our leather couch in the Ladies' Parlor. Here you can watch a movie, cable TV, play checkers, or maybe a board game. We live on a separate floor of the house so there are no worries about privacy or curfews.
Getting sleepy? We've been told we have the most comfortable beds ever with featherbeds and down comforters. These can be removed in case of allergies. Don't forget to set your alarm because you definitely don't want to miss breakfast! And what do we serve for breakfast, anyway?
First course: Home-baked bread such as, strawberry bread, lemon muffins, banana-pumpkin bread. All breads have a glaze or icing to compliment them.
Second course: Fresh fruit served in a wine glass, on a skewer, or sliced on a small plate.
Third course: Egg dish such as stuffed Breakfast Croissant or maybe Quiche Lorraine. This course also includes a side dish such as Hash Brown Casserole, Sausage Cream Pastry or some such yummy.
Fourth course: This would be dessert! Could be Strawberry Pancakes, Cinnamon French Toast, or maybe a steaming hot Upside-down, Blueberry-Pineapple Coffee Cake.
Yes, we have repeat guests that come back just for the food! And yes, we do accommodate special diets.
Your three to four course candlelit gourmet breakfast is especially enjoyable in our lovely rounded dining room. The sun coming in through red and green stained glass windows is a cheerful start to your day. The view from the dining room is green lawn and majestic trees!

We are a small Inn and cancellations are devastating to our business. We have turned down requests for your room to honor your reservations. Emergencies arise, so if you must cancel we will do everything we can to rebook the room. If we are unable to rebook, then you are responsible. If we can rebook the room then you will only be charged the $25.00 cancellation processing fee. Rescheduling your visit is the same as a cancellation.
