My girlfriend and I literally felt like we were at home! Jaynee, the owner was the nicest person I have ever met! Even before my stay she sent me confirmation emails and instructions on what to do when I arrived. She made everything nice and clear and she was very prompt when I had any questions. The house was beautiful,...

Our stay at the 1840 Inn was nothing short of amazing! The hospitality was exceptional and the food was simply delicious! It was our first time staying at the 1840, but the Straws treated us as if we were family! Overall, this was a first class, five star operation!

Our experience celebrating our 3rd anniversary was a positive one in spite of the less than good weather. The Burrell Suite was very comfortable and cozy, with a great jacuzzi! The bathroom was very tight and small with a window pane doubling as the mirror. The breakfast was delicious but we were never asked if we wanted more, especially fruit...

We were so happy you were able to spend time with us for your anniversary celebration and appreciate your feedback. The bathroom in the Burrell Suite is original to the home, and with historic homes, we have to work with the space we have. All the guestrooms have much larger baths, which you may be more comfortable with. We are...

Where do I begin!?! I'll start with the fact that I have never stayed at a Bed & Breakfast before. I was always curious about what it would be like, but I was shy about staying in a persons home with other strangers staying in the same house as me. I thought breakfast time with strangers was going to be...

“Each room had a log book for visitors to record their experiences. There were refrigerators and coffee makers on both floors available at all times to the visitors. There was plenty of parking behind the house. Located on Main St, a rather busy road, but the house is set back and it was quiet enough for easy sleeping all night.”
