My fiancé treated me to a 2-night stay at Cpt. Schoonmakers and it was one of the most romantic and comfortable getaways we've had.
We stayed in the carriage house, had a very comfortable four-poster bed, our own bathroom, and an amazing private deck off our room that we used to sit outside and enjoy the stream flowing in the backyard. At night, we slept with the windows open and let the sounds of the waterfall lull us to sleep.
As a firsttime guest of a B&B, I wasn't sure what to expect, but I found Judy's breakfasts to be delicious and presented so well. Each morning, breakfast was served on a different set of china, which were all beautiful and added to the great country ambiance of the place.
There are no TVs in the bedroom, which I loved because it allowed my fiancé and I to focus on each other and really spend quality time together. The house is filled with boardgames, most of them 30 years old, but we had so much fun playing games, talking, and sharing a bottle of wine in front of a huge fireplace.
We got bit outside by some Mosquitos and it made me wish I packed my bugspray, but wouldn't you know, as soon as I walked in the carriage house there was bug spray sitting on a counter for everyone's use, right next to a pile of extra towels which came in handy to wipe off some water I tracked inside. Judy and Bill think of everything!
This place truly had all the comforts of home and I was so sad to leave. It has set the standard high for my future bed and breakfast ventures. It's a great getaway when you need to recharge and I will recommend it to all my friends!
