My wife and I stayed at the Yates house with family for a wedding and I was blown away! The stay was arranged by other family members and our family and friends numbered so many that we pretty much took over both houses of the inn. This was our first time in Rocheport and what a quaint picturesque little town. We have stayed at many B & B’s and have been impressed with some and sorely disappointed in others, but I have to say this one pretty much wins out on all the others when you tally up all categories. The attention to detail is evident everywhere from the furnishings in the rooms to the decorations. Conrad and Dixie who own the inn and run it with the help of Dixie’s sister are quite the hosts, warm and friendly. I felt spoiled the whole time we were there. Conrad, you crack me up. Even though we arrived late in the evening our first night there you insisted on showing us how everything worked down to the smallest detail. You are proud of your inn and it shows. My wife’s cousin told us about Dixie’s cooking but wow! A lot of B&B’s serve up something for breakfast that sounds impressive but in reality…… I wish I could have Dixie’s cooking all the time but I would gain 30 pounds. By the way, Dixie has written cookbook and I made sure I got mine before we left. Those cookies Dixie makes don’t stay on plates very long. I’m pretty picky when it comes to beds because of my back but their beds are first rate with fine linens and covers and contrary to what one (misinformed) previous reviewer wrote there are no bed bugs here. This place is super clean and as corny as this sounds it reminds me of one of those articles you see in Sunset magazine. Thanks guys for a wonderful experience, I wish you were closer to home so we could stay more. P.S. Walk the short distance to the main street for shopping, homemade ice cream and live music in the evening, fun!
