My friend and I are writers, and we come for the peace and quiet. For the beauty. For the luscious surroundings - and we don't mind Jen's fabulous breakfasts, either! It's our perfect writing getaway. This year we allowed another writer friend in on our treasured weekend, and she agrees. Thanks for the lovely stay.

Great to be back in 2011! We first came here in 2004. So beautiful and relaxing, drinking in the fragrances of Jen's beautiful roses. Giulio's beautiful woodwork surrounded us. Breakfast was wonderful, as was the conversation. Thanks Buddy for your great hosting! We'll be back.
Two great nights of sleep, hearty breakfasts, lovely weather. We watched Mr. squirrel fill his tummy from pine cones. We watched the Mallard family play in our secret little pond. We listened to the birdsong and frog chatter. Blessings to you.
What an amazing night! Our first night together as hasband and wife. What a Beautiful and relaxing place to stay after an exciting and fun day. Beautiful grounds to take a morning stroll and an amazing rose garden! The perfect place to top off the start of our life! Thanks.
We enjoyed the beautiful surroundings, elegant room and delicious breakfast. But most of all, we enjoyed the friendly conversation and hospitality. One of the top places to spend time away from the busy-ness of everyday. Thank you!
You are THE BEST! We needed a quiet place to regroup and get pampered and this was it! Your're a fantastic cook and we felt so welcome. And Buddy, you're so sweet you remind me of my sweet baby who has passed on. It was great being with you all. Thank you so much.
What a wonderful find this place is. We were enthrolled the moment we drove up the driveway. We were not disappointed at all-we can't wait to come back. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.
Thank you for pouring your heart, soul and incredible gifts into creating a most sublime setting for others to enjoy. We wish our stay could have been longer but we are truly grateful for the brief time you shared your paradise with us.
Thank you so much for being such wonderful hostesses! We enjoyed our stay and couldn't think of a more peaceful and beautiful place. We look forward to coming back to visit you again soon (and Buddy). You truly made our experience here memorable. By the way, Breakfast was delicious!
Thanks so much for making our first visit feel like home away from home. You truly have the B&B hospitality down to a science. We enjoyed visiting with you both, strolling through your beautiful gardens. Also a pleasurer to meet Buddy.
