“Great tub!”
Reviewed 17 September 2007

My bf and I stayed in one of the upstairs rooms in the carriage house -- the one with the wooden-log-construction bed; not the western/Santa Fe themed one. We agreed that staying in the carriage house, which is maybe 20 yards from the main house, suited us because of its privacy. We particularly enjoyed the two-person spa and how friendly but very hands-off the hosts were since we felt free to come and go as we pleased with no interruption.

Breakfast was very nice. It didn't blow my mind and it would have been nice to have something savory to go with what was a lot of sweet, but it was very nicely done and filled us nicely for the rest of the morning driving north. There was one donut-type muffin each (think a sour cream muffin rolled in cinnamon sugar) and fruit for a "first course" and then an oven pancake with strawberries and whipped cream. The whole experience was very couple-y, which in our case was sort of nice since this was a first weekend away together and neither of us had ever stayed in a bed and breakfast.

My fiance and I were very impressed by the experience this past Labor Day weekend at the AG Thomson House. This was the second weekend that the B & B had been under new ownership but judging by the service you would think that the new owners had been doing this their whole lives. You can tell they love doing this and it shows. The experience embodied the ideal bed and breakfast experience.

Delicious breakfasts were served at 9am. For those of you who usually stay in a hotel you're in for a surprise. The breakfast menu items were elegant, the type of foods that you can imagine being served when the house was originally built in 1909. We stayed in the carriage house but were given a key for access to the main house so we could read and relax in the large living room and sunroom. Complimentary wine was offered in the afternoon and this was a nice break in the day of sightseeing and hiking and gave us a chance to meet some of the new guests that had arrived that day.

All and all this was a wonderful experience and we would highly recommend the AG Thomson House to family and friends.
