Excellent...from the comfortable bed and room to the fire in the living room to the complimentary wine and cheese each evening. We felt at home the whole time. A number of nice local restaurants to choose from and beautiful small town. Highly recommended.

Yes, the inn is nice, Victoria is great, it's in a terrific area, and you'll love breakfast. Now for the important stuff.

If you forget...

My son and his girlfriend booked a three night getaway at this beautiful and relaxing bed and breakfast. It is conveniently accessible by MetroNorth station and a car is not an absolute must. They enjoyed biking and kayaking as well as walks to the town of Madison but their stay was made perfect by Victoria. She is friendly and never...

This B&B is a great place to stay. The breakfast was delicious, and the room was clean and comfortable. They also stock a fridge with drinks and snacks - very nice! Convenient location to a lot of the local attractions, bars, restaurants. Definitely a good place to stay!
