Heidi F, Owner at Freeman on Ford B&B, responded to this review

Dear Shirley, It was a pleasure have you and your in laws. It always motivates us ("fuel in the tank"), when we receive such acknowledgement for our work. We try so hard to have everything of the highest quality and to provide the best experience for all. As hosts, this sort of praise keeps us going and is greatly appreciated....

Many excellent reasons why you should stay here - the people, the rooms, the food. However, I have a nice car I wanted to keep secure and off the street and this was the perfect solution. Highly recommended and my wife and I won't be staying anywhere else whenever we return. Thanks again! Martin & Anna

We had a wonderful stay with hosts Heidi and Jim excelling in their hospitality once again. This stay we were able to use their beautiful pool which was a bonus. Next time we stay, we will certainly have more than one night there.

We stayed upstairs (if you are a bit shaky on your legs, you might consider one of the much larger rooms downstairs). Our room (with...

“The room was unbelievable. Freeman on Ford is the most divine luxurious 5 star B & B. No detail has been overlooked. The absolute highlight are it's wonderful owners Jim & Heidi and the exquisite chef Megan. I cannot recommend the place more highly.
