This charming, quintessential Bed and Breakfast totally suited my tastes. The home is beautiful; the quiet, bucolic location overlooking the Connecticut River is special; and the hosts superb. Highlights included enjoying delicious homemade cookies, a steaming bubble bath, and a late-winter walk along the Connecticut River next to a bird sanctuary at sunset. Maryan and Jeff Muthersbaugh are excellent, thoughtful and accommodating hosts. Their recommendation that I, an artist, visit nearby Chester--an art and restaurant mecca--was spot-on! I had a wonderful time, and look forward to returning!
