"This place is the best kept B&B secret in America! We were absolutely overwhelmed at how amazing this place is and the hospitality we received from Vellie and her staff. From the moment we arrived we felt extremely welcome, special and indulged by the generosity we received. The home is decorated beautifully in a traditional American style and the rooms themselves are spectacularly opulent. We had a huge comfy bed and felt like royalty. Breakfast in the morning was a delicious treat and one of the best omelettes we'd tried in our lives made with all fresh ingredients from Vellie's farm. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and I'm sure will look even more spectacular in warmer months. We wish we'd booked for longer as this place is absolute luxury, we were absolutely spoiled, and the accommodation and hospitality is overwhelmingly generous! Stay here soon before everyone else finds out how amazing it is!"
