Reviewed 10 November 2008

My partner and I spent two nights at the RBF. It is actually a newer home built to look old, and it is fantastic. From the many antiques to the reclaimed floorboards, it's stunning. We stayed in the Hearts and Flowers suite, and if you want a place to hole up in and relax, chose one of the suites over the more simple rooms. We saw all five rooms and would recommend them all. All the furnishings are top-notch.

The hosts, Robin and Elaine, have a well-practiced schtick that includes a very informative tour of the round barn on their property.

Robin also makes fresh bread every day, which rounds out their delicious, multi-course breakfasts.

The only things that make this a 4-star instead of 5-star review are: it was really noisy when they made breakfast (we wedged the extra blanket by the door the second morning which solved the problem), and while Robin and Elaine are certainly friendly and helpful, it did feel a bit practiced/forced.

With the exception of trains rumbling past the property at all hours, this B and B would have been a positive experience... Had it not been for the owner's insistence on sharing her political beliefs over the breakfast table.

She was quite vocal about her anti-union and pro-Republican stance. I would never deny anyone their right to voice an opinion, but I don't necessarily want to hear it during a meal and especially don't want to hear it from someone I've just given a considerable amount of money to. Being a union member and Dem, her rant made me very uncomfortable.

If you are a drum-beating, sword-waving member of the Republican party, this is the B and B for you! I would advise everyone else to find other accommodations.

My wife and I are the new owners of the Round Barn Farm B & B. I am sorry that your past visit here was not what you hoped it would be. As new owners I promise you we have a policy of no political rantings or drum beating for breakfast!

Well-meaning owners but this is not a relaxing place to stay. When part of the house tour includes where the drawer of earplugs are--this should be an indication that sleep ranks slightly below where you'd like it to be. Expect to be rousted out of bed at 7:30am because one owner insists all guests get up to make bread with him. If you don't respond to his loud calls, he runs the building banging a pot! I was already up at 5:30am because the management loudly goes about their business speaking in loud voices and clattering coffee supplies to the coffee station in the hall across from the sleeping rooms. Add to this the train that passes at 40 minute intervals blowing its horn some 200 yards from your sleeping quarters and you have an insomniac's nightmare.

I was not amused by the New Testament reading at breakfast--nor by the requirement that you stay in your chair during the excellent but exceedingly long breakfast.

If you like organized camp life, you will love this place. If you prefer a good night's sleep and a modicum of personal freedom, stay away.

We stayed here for our 25th wedding anniversary, and everything about it was delightful. The friendly and professional owners, the spotless and comfortable room, the delicious and beautiful breakfast, and the additional little touches all combined to make us feel pampered beyond belief. The bed was the most comfortable we have ever slept in. In the morning, the owner took us on a tour of the round barn. Round Barn Farm made a special occasion very memorable. The owners love what they are doing and it shows. We are already planning our return.

The Round Barn Farm Bed and Breakfast is just great. The home is beautiful. The owners are very warm, friendly, and professional. Breakfast is delicious and beautifully presented. We stayed in the Hearts and flowers suite. It was spotless and luxerious. Be prepared for the nearby train. It is noisy but by the second night we didn't even hear it anymore. We did not feel it was a determent to our experience at all. They do offer earplugs, we did not use them. We will be back.
