We had a wonderful stay here. The warm hospitality made us feel like we were family and loved. It was a great experience for our first time at a B&B. May the Lord continue to bless this place for other guests. Thank you Lena for your friendship.

Both buildings on the property were built in the mid-1800s. The house where the bed and breakfast is was usually a country store and post office in the early 1900s! Book a room and experience a unique, historical bed and breakfast.
