The gas station owner reminded me of our own family in a small town trying to keep a business alive and facing numerous defeats at the hands of government, competition etc. I... More

We loved this place. It was absolutely serene. The food was wonderful and the host gracious and attentive. We had the double room. We loved the balcony, the grounds and the hummingbird that was enjoying the lilacs outside the dining room window.

I totally agree with the previous reviewers. This is the coolest B&B we have ever experienced. The setting is beautiful. Each room has a balcony overlooking a nice pond and gardens with a beautiful forest in the background. The rooms are roomy, very clean, and quite comfortable. The living room and dining area are quite cozy and full of unique... More

Up until our two nights at Nomad's we had considered our 12 nights in B & B's in Ireland as the best ever! Nothing even comes close to what we experienced under Linda's care. She is the most generous and amazing hostess! A gourmet chef by any standards and we can't even describe the incredible feeling of peace and complete... More

This is one of the loveliest B and B's I have ever stayed at. I was there once before and was planning to visit again. Linda Tremblay is a marvel and has created an oasis of calm and beauty that lends itself to a weekend of rest, or, of earthly and romantic delights! Adding to this, Linda is a superb... More

Linda Tremblay is the owner, operator of this bed and breakfast. She is the perfect hostess. She has taken such attention to detail in design of the house and gardens and is a wonderful cook. She is charming and lively and we would return anytime. Thank you Linda!

From the moment we arrived Linda made us feel like we owned the place. She goes out of her way to make her guests feel very comfortable. We were welcomed with Sangria, an apple cake, and a plate of cheese, olives, soppressata, fruit. It was a wonderful start to a great stay. You also had your choice of coffee, teas... More
