  • About Bev & Charles

    It was easy to convince Charles that a bed & breakfast would be something that he would enjoy. His interest in people, history and antiques makes him a perfect host. As for Bev, the bed & breakfast is one of the ways she continues with stewardship of the land, which began in her family in 1903, when her grandfather purchased this property. Her mother's special legacy of hospitality is carried on as well by the fantastic breakfasts and plentiful baked goods served in the "old" farmhouse kitchen. Bev feels growing up on the farm was great and she enjoys sharing the farm with her guests. When they are not gardening, you can find Bev and Charles dancing to Big Band music or to the old time tunes at the Manton Jamboree.
