Welcoming and Wonderful!!

We were not sure of our arrival time in town and when we drove in that evening and called around, Carol welcomed us. From the moment we walked in Carol took care of us and made us quite at home. We loved our downstairs suite; very warm, quiet, cozy. Claw foot tub was very relaxing. Carol checked with us to ensure we had the breakfast we needed before we headed out by bicycle. Breakfast was complete and had special touches and delicious. Carol also has beverage treats always available; small refrigerator available too. The homestead is easy to find and in a lovely part of town; comfortable porch and yard. Parking is convenient in the extra large driveway. Carol is very knowledgeable about the history of the house and area and excited to help guests. Carol is very genuine in her desire to provide a wonderful guest experience. Carol also helped us so that we could bicycle for three days and return to the Van Cleef. We felt like we returned home even to the note on the door saying 'welcome home' and our same room. Thank you Carol!! We wish you the very best :-)

Lovely!

My husband and I stayed here last weekend and it was a great getaway! Carol greeted us when we arrived and gave us a quick tour, then showed us to our room. Snacks were available in the dining room in case we had arrived hungry, and we were invited to bring our own CDs into the living room CD player. Our room was clean, warm, and comfortable and also had a small selection of DVDs, books, and magazines, which was a bonus! In the morning, we enjoyed blueberry pancakes (after Carol asked if that was okay with us!) and a variety of other breakfast treats. Everything was perfect and we look forward to going back someday! (Carol also knew quite a bit about the town which was perfect for our tourist-y questions!)

Spacious rooms, warm and cozy

We stayed at the Homestead for a family getaway to usher in the New Year. Our host, Carol, was warm, welcoming, and very accommodating. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast in the morning - homemade pancakes, fresh apple bake, yummy bread and muffins. She even made a special "Mickey" pancake for our 3-year-old son. We would highly recommend for couples or families.

Wonderful start of the Holidays

We stayed at the VanCleef during the "It's A Wonderful Life" celebration. The inn was beautifully decorated; soft Christmas played in the background; fresh cookies were waiting for us; and the innkeeper, Carol, was warm and welcoming. The breakfasts were delicious! Our room was spacious, clean, warm, and cozy. We plan to return to the area to experience the wine trail and lakes.
