  • About Your Hosts

    The Holcombe Guest House is owned by husband and wife team Jeffrey Bower and Elizabeth Card. They have a long association with the furniture industry. Their knowledge of home furnishings has allowed them to furnish the Bed & Breakfast with comfortable, high quality furniture and premium quality bedding for the enjoyment and comfort of their guests.

    The hosts do not reside on the property although your hosts will always be at the Inn during breakfast time and during check-in and check-out time. This unique arrangement allows the guests to be more comfortable and not feel like they are infringing on the personal space of the hosts. It also allows the guests a little space to explore the house, town and surrounding areas without a hovering or overly doting innkeeper.
