    Anne's house of dreams was the perfect place for our family to stay while in town for a funeral. Sherrie was so helpful accommodating our needs. The house is very warm and inviting. We have stayed here multiple times and have never been disappointed.

    If this was indeed the busiest time of the year how were there rooms available. If you were not going to be there and if your young staff were not up to the task why have the option to book a room. If you have the option to book a room online you need to have the amenities that are paid for. I feel we wasted our money with this B&B.
