    We had a great stay- your B&B is the most beautiful we've seen- fell in love with the colors and layout- very peaceful and clean looking- appreciate the "outdoor" indoors with all the greenery and plants. The white linens and towels were luxurious- couldn't think of a better place to be away from home. Thank you for the great food, hospitality and info. Sue & Stephen, NY
