Sarah & I thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Joe & Marla at their one-of-a-kind historic home. Joe & Marla were so gracious! The inn is within walking distance to some great restaurants. After dinner, we enjoyed chatting with Joe & Marla over a glass of wine in their spacious, and private courtyard/gardens! The courtyard is beautifully landscaped with brick privacy... More

It is our eight or ninth stay and our fourth stay in the Gibson suite. It keeps getting better: another comfortable chair in the sitting room, mirror in the back of the door and make up mirror in the bathroom. The toiletries are top quality.

The best bed and breakfast I've ever been to. Joe impressed me before I even got there by asking if either of us had any food allergies. Marla is an excellent chef. The service was impeccable, the rooms were lovely - each one unique, there was literally nothing left to chance.
