Please note that a Bed & Breakfast is not a commercial establishment, therefore you will have a more personalized experience as our guests. If you wish to bring a hamper of food, we provide a refrigerator for guest-use. We ask that no food or drinks (other than water) be taken into our guest bedrooms as we do not ask for a damage-deposit thus we appreciate your consideration in this matter. Guests who stay longer than two nights are welcome to bring in ‘take-out’ suppers with the use of our dining room and/or picnic tables outside. Please speak to us & we will provide plates & cutlery. We take into consideration dietary needs of our guests & appreciate being informed when booking your reservation.

It has been my mandate from the beginning of opening our B&B that this is a place where people come to experience what it is like living in the country but that all who stay here may take the peace and quiet of the countryside with them when they leave. Some guests come in rushed and stressed with time constraints or they come at the end of a long journey. A B&B can be a choice of price point nearby where people need to be and it can also be a selective choice of staying in someone’s home and having more personal contact with owners. It is important to us that our guests feel welcome in our home as much as we hope they will respect us as B&B owners. For whatever reason you choose to come here, I hope it may be a nurturing experience for you. SandyP.
