Based on the reviews, we knew we would enjoy the inn but everything was absolutely wonderful. Attentive and knowledgeable innkeepers. Cindy was a delight! The rooms were clean and the beds very comfy. The inn was the perfect distance from downtown. We easily walked there but it was very quiet at the inn. Breakfast was the highlight! Delicious and plentiful....

We've stayed in many B and B's and Inn on Carleton is certainly one of the very best. We were so happy to have been able to stay here recently.

This B&B is great. The innkeepers Buddy and Cindy are sooo welcoming. The rooms are very nice and quiet. The breakfast was delicious and we even had live piano playing during breakfast which was amazing. Thanks for that! The location is pretty quiet and in walking distance to downtown. There are lots of nice restaurants not far away.

We only stayed 2 nights, but...

This B&B is fantastic. Our room was lovely, beautifully decorated and very clean. It was quiet and we had a very restful and peaceful night. Buddy and Cindy are extremely welcoming. The food is delicious... The shortbread at tea time was very more-ish, we kept going back for more (very naughty)! And breakfast was extremely yummy too. The top reviews...
