I say it was an experience because it was more than just a Bed and Breakfast stay. The owners go out of their way to make you feel at home and accommodate your every need. From the moment you walk in your greeted by the friendly innkeeper and given a tour of the place. No pictures can do this place justice. The B&B is set upon the top of a mountain and the views are spectacular. We stayed in the wildflower room and would wake up to the sights of the mountains every morning. Jim, one of the owners, is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. He can give you great suggestions on what to do during the day and is great to chat with during your stay. The breakfasts were absolutely amazing. You would expect that kind of food at a fine dining restaurant. You can tell they have taken a lot of time planning and cooking each meal. I can not say enough about this place. The bed was the most comfortable we have slept in, and the bathroom has a state-of-the-art jacuzzi tub and rain/steam shower. It was our first B&B stay and can confidently say there will never be a greater experience at another B&B. This is a MUST DO if your a B&B enthusiast or first timer like us!
