I was here for business, but Bill and Ann Marie made it feel like I was re-visiting dear friends! This is my most favorite B&B, and I look for excuses to stay there. Their passion for their ancestral home, and for hospitality, is evident at every turn. I was greeted warmly upon my arrival with a fire in the fireplace...
