Ruth and Jim, the hostess and host of this historic abode are wonderful... kind, accommodating, non-pressuring, free-spirited, and knowledgeable. When my girlfriend and I arrived, Ruth kindly gave us the run of the home... a bit of history and a welcoming tour. With its sunshine-friendly rooms, antique collections, and warm atmosphere, the home itself welcomed us into its comforting arms before we headed out for the day/night. At five in the evening, snacks and wine were served to us in the dining room and later that evening, port and chocolates before bed. Both of us had some dietary restrictions (I'm a vegan) and we were both given satisfying, creative meals for our breakfast. The classy FEEL of the home cannot be denied and remains an intangible to me. There is a hospitable history here that exudes the walls, stairwells, and hallways making any house guest a lucky traveler. We will DEFINITELY return. Loved it!
