In Elkhorn for a wedding and the mother of the bride recommended YOMH. No disappointments at all! Karen and John are wonderful hosts and have truly made it a second home to travelers (and for those of us that never seem to have time for adequate gardening and cleaning, it's better than home!). Well-appointed, clean, crisp and homey without the often-seen flowered everything of B&Bs. Antiques and collectibles add the comfy-ness without feeling like you're in a museum. Numerous places indoors and outside to sit and have a cup of tea or a cold beverage, an indoor pool, gorgeous gardens, and delicious breakfasts. I stayed in the Rising Sun room and there wasn't a single thing I would have changed. Perfect mattress, plush towels. If I lived in the Midwest it would be my choice for a weekend get-away. Hope to get back there for another stay.
