I have known the proprietors of Rippon-Kinsella since they owned the Henry Mischler House and have come back several times to stay with them. That should tell you a lot right there!
Of all the B&B's I have ever stayed at, Roger and David put the most effort into making everyone feel welcome. Roger cooks a terrific breakfast; not too heavy but just right to get your day started.
The home itself has a lovely decor. It has historical pieces mixed with just a dash of eclectic flair. It adds a touch of whimsy to keep the house from feeling like a museum. Everything is kept absolutely spotless and is incredibly well maintained. The yard is a work in progress but it is very well kept.
The location is excellent. It's within walking distance from the Lincoln Tomb and Oak Ridge Cemetery. You could walk to downtown if the weather is co-operating with your plans that day.
I would call them just as you are getting into town so they can be ready. It's only polite to do so anyways.
I have returned several times over to stay here and if you stay, I know you will too.
