I have traveled all over the U.S. for 25 years. The "Hide-Away" room I stayed in was unequivocally the CLEANEST, beautifully decorated and most comfortable room I have EVER stayed in! I suspect a "team" of 20 scrubbed this room with toothbrushes! The owners, Bill & Shirley

Thank you for such a great review. We make every effort to accommodate all the needs of our guests and appreciate it when it is acknowledged. We thoroughly enjoyed our chats at the breakfast table, sharing stories and getting to know you, your husband and daughter. Nicole is such a lovely young lady -- she must take after her mother!! We wish you all the best and hope you will revisit us when you are in the area again. Regards, Dave and Shirley

Joy, Thank you for responding with such a nice review. We truly want your experience with us to be more like family - and you do seem like that before you leave. We loved listening to your "southern" accent and stories at the breakfast table. That is the best part of being a B & B - meeting new people such as yourselves and hearing about your lives and where y'all from. Take care and Thank you for choosing The Roost

My husband and I stayed here recently before picking our kids up from camp, and had a great stay. The room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. Shirley and Dave were lovely, and the breakfast was delicious! If you're getting dinner out, I'd recommend Pepper's Garden and Grill.

"I checked out all three rooms and chose the "Hide-Away". All of the three options are wonderful !!!"
"We liked the second floor room, which was very private."
"We stayed in "The Loft", which is a separate apartment, adjacent to the main home."
"All rooms are quite comfortable. Downstairs--the Piano Room. The other two are just as comfortable, lovely, and quiet."
"Rooms are just as you see on their website. No bad choices."
