GUESTROOMS

Each bedroom is individually designed for comfort. Each room has its own personal climate control and is spacious enough for just the right-size desk and easy sitting chair, all the better to bite into one of the family recipe sweets hand delivered with a note to your room every day.

Each room has its own bathroom with 100% cotton towels and our beds are dressed with pressed 100% cotton linens. Yes, we really do iron our sheets.

BREAKFAST

Full two course breakfast is an affair to remember. Jim shops the night before for the morning's fresh ingredients.

Both courses are served in the dining room at private tables on heritage china after early morning coffee porch-side or by the hearth.

Yes, we make our breakfast from scratch every morning.

After flying 14 hours from Dubai in the United Arab Emirates and driving 5 hours from JFK airport in pouring rain this place was a haven. The attention to detail, soft fluffy towels for my bath, natural soaps, Perrier Water, lots of white linen was all so soothing. I slept like a baby…. I have been in the States 6 times in the last 2 months…and this ideal place has been the best B&B for hospitality and charm.
