“So relaxing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

This was possibly the most restful and relaxing place we have ever stayed! Our hostess, Jeannie, welcomed us at the door and immediately made us feel right at home. The house is lovely and very well kept, and the time spent there was so peaceful and relaxing. After showing us around, Jeannie encouraged us to make ourselves at home. We sat on the front porch and felt tension melt away while we enjoyed the peace of quiet of this lovely area. I played on the grand piano in the music room. My husband sat in the parlor reading a book. It was just wonderful! Our room was spacious and the king bed was so very comfortable! In the morning Jeannie made us a fabulous breakfast and served us in the dining room. I felt like a queen! If you would like to get away for a relaxing day or two, this is a really good choice. You won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: Louisa May Alcott room on the first floor is quiet and you don't have to climb stairs.

My wife and I stayed here 1/24-1/25/14, and was not disappointed in any way. Every aspect of our stay was exceptional. We were impressed with the house and the Hosts the moment she let us in the front door. If you enjoy the character of older homes, you'll enjoy the detail, and ambience of this B&B. We arrived late in the evening, but Jeannie was still there to greet us, and give us a tour of her home, and made us feel quite welcome, though it was getting late. We were there to play golf on some area courses, and each morning Jeannie fixed a fabulous breakfast that left us content, and not wanting to eat till the evening. She then was very helpful in suggesting several restaurants. It was our anniversary as well, and she made us feel as if this was our home, completely to ourselves, except we had a fantastic breakfast waiting for us each morning. Jeannie also mailed some clothing I had accidentally left behind, at no cost to myself, which I thought was extremely generous on her behalf, and exemplifies how she runs her B&B. We can't wait to visit again ASAP. Thank you for a wonderful experience!!! Great golf courses nearby as well!!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Make time to do some reading in one of the parlor's.

We stayed here for our anniversary since we couldn't get out of town until later. We live in a 130 yr old home, so I really enjoyed seeing different updates and finishing touches to make this house accommodate guests. --Loved the tile work and grout color change in the border around the Jacuzzi. At every Victorian Bed and Breakfast I come away with new ideas. The hosts were great and our breakfast was scrumptious and Jeanne worked with our diet desires.

A few have commented that the decor was dated. I felt that even the "dating" in some rooms still fit the house. Yes, there may have been some areas of maintenance in the hallway, etc, but it totally did not detract from the experience. Made me feel at home, because I know how daunting maintaining a historic home can be. My husband says old houses are like a well worn leather jacket--comfortable, but not perfect.

Room Tip: personally I liked the Nathaniel Hawthorne room best of all, but each to their own.

We were on a road trip and used Trip Advisor day by day as our plans had been thrown in to disarray due the shutdown. Found this B&B on TA and contacted the owner/host. Jeanne was extremely helpful, not only whilst we were with them, but also e-mailing us with advice and alternative suggestions for our trip (4 weeks in the US) as we were not able to stay at the Grand Canyon or Yosemite. Great old house, lovingly restored in a good location. The rooms are delightful, the hospitality friendly.

The hosts are extremely friendly. Comfy n cozy expected in a B&B experience with your own bathroom, flat panel TV and Wifi. Includes a wonderful culinary breakfast. I hope you get the pecan hot cakes, Wow. Beautiful antiques, organs and piano are in great condition. My room had a two person Jaccuzi tub plus a modern shower with multi-jet shower head.

Nothing like a fall road trip on the spur of the moment. A showing of Route 66 quilts at a Carthage, Missouri museum got my wife interested, so we booked a room at the Grand Avenue Bed and Breakfast. This is a home that was NOT built in the last century, but the century before that, in 1893. It was a beauty in its day, and still is. Our host greeted us at the door and gave an interesting tour of the house, along with its history. It is beautifully appointed and furnished with a variety of period stuff, we felt at home right away. Our ground floor room was the Laura Ingalls Wilder room. We enjoyed a great breakfast and had a long chat with four other guests, three sisters and their 80-year-old mother, who was as bright and chipper as a new penny. Grand Avenue Bed and Breakfast does it right. We will return.

We were treated by our children to a Dinner on our 37th wedding anniversary. We then found we were going for the night to the Grand Ave. Bed and Breakfast. Jeannie had cooperated with our children and had let them in to decorate our bed with rose petals, a bouquet of roses and chocolate strawberries and more. We had a tremendous night and enjoyed a wonderful breakfast in the morning. We enjoyed the experience thoroughly and would recommend Grand Ave. to anyone. It is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The staff serves you graciously without hovering over you. Thanks so much.
