This beautiful Victorian B&B offers great location, very comfortable accommodations and the best three-course breakfast in town. We have been coming here for the past 6 years and it's great every single time. The picture shows a homemade chocolate croissant with a cup of organic fairtrade java!

Pleasant, respectful owners, well appointed accommodation with kitchenette, and super close to downtown (and craft breweries). The home-cooked breakfast, with garden fresh ingredients, was absolutely topnotch, and a highlight of our stay. Owner was very understanding of our rambunctious toddler. Will be sure to take advantage of the outside sitting area next time. Thank you!

The Dug Road Inn is elegant, spacious, clean and quiet. My mom, sister and I shared the Baker/Lindy Suite and it was perfect for our needs. Karina, the innkeeper, was friendly but also very respectful of our privacy. The gourmet breakfast she prepared for us was amazing and we appreciated her efforts to prepare food for my sister who is...

Stayed at Dug Road Inn in July while taking a class with friends. Our room was comfortable and spotless. The breakfasts were special - gourmet food with gracious service. The young, enthusiastic hosts accommodated all our requests. I plan to return with my husband who ordinarily isn't a fan of B&Bs. He will like this place.

We can't heap enough praise. Micah and Corinna recently took over the Dug Road Inn, as the previous owners retired, and they are dedicated to continuing a tradition of excellence. We were a little late arriving but Micah was waiting for us and happily welcomed us with a glass of wine. We had the Painter room on the first floor...

“Third Floor suite has a fireplace & is a nice room to gather a group. However, the beds are separated by drapery, so privacy is limited.”

“IF your budget allows, book the "Top of the Inn". This suite is remarkably quite and is equipped with it's very own luxurious bathroom. From what I have gathered from all of the guest I have spoken with there are no bad rooms to be had.”
