My husband and I were looking for a quiet, cozy and romantic place to celebrate our anniversary. The Wooden Duck B&B exceeded our expectations. Owner Karl Krummel immediately made us feel welcome, and along with his wife Beth served up a delicious, filling breakfast in the morning. The lovely, well-maintained property is in a quiet country location...we even saw a doe walk past our window. The room itself was immaculate and had every amenity we expected -- and some we didn't, from the luxurious robes hanging in the closet to the fragrant bath salts at the edge of the huge, 2-person tub to the thick, fluffy towels. Although we have no control over the other guests, we were pleased that they were quiet and courteous. We've had far too many otherwise pleasant hotel stays elsewhere ruined by loud, obnoxious guests.
The room turned out to be much smaller than it appears in the website photo, which made the $259 (plus tax) fee a tad too pricey. However, the location, amenities, food and outstanding service make the cost well worth the stay. We'll definitely be back and highly recommend The Wooden Duck with no hesitation.
