What’s the best compliment you have ever received about the inn?
Hard to say; we’ve enjoyed gracious and courteous guests! Here’s a typical review:
My husband and I were very pleased with the Rabbit Run. We spent our one year anniversary weekend there in July and had so much fun. The rooms are gorgeous! When my husband said we were going to a B&B I cringed and thought about a dirty house in the woods with granny print drapes...but no! Rabbit Run is modern and lovely! Super clean and comfy. They had bikes to use for free and helmets too:) We rode bikes to Warren Dunes beach with the map they gave us. We also took advantage of Cherry Beach with their pass which was beautiful and much less crowded. They had so much information for us to use and they left a little note and wine for our anniversary. You should also definitely take advantage of the wineries and Soe Cafe closeby, it was delicious!
