I'm not even sure where to begin, I can't say enough positive things about this B&B as well as the hosts- Scott and Jen. Right from the time of booking Scott was so helpful and more than willing to answer any questions I had. The price was very reasonable and we were given more than the "royal treatment" while we were there. We received a warm welcome when we arrived, a thorough tour of the house and property as well as fresh baked cookies. :) The B&B really does feel like home. We started each day off with a wonderful breakfast that was fresh, homemade and always something different. Scott and Jen also provided us with an afternoon/evening snack which was more than expected and delicious! Scott is an amazing cook!!
The three of us had the run of the house, and were welcome to use the kitchen, hot tub, and fire pit any time we wanted. The porches are a lovely space to sit and drink your coffee in the morning, read a book or just take in the beautiful scenery.
The house itself is absolutely stunning, not to mention spotless, decorated beautifully and fully stocked with everything you might need. Each bedroom has it's own key that you are given at the time of check in, we were never worried about leaving our belongings unattended in the house, but thought this was important to note as some people may feel more comfortable knowing their items are extra secure. We were also given a key to the door of the house so we could come and go.
Scott was very attentive, accommodating, and so thoughtful. He was available if we needed something but gave us space to do our own thing and enjoy our weekend away catching up.
Scott and Jen know a lot about the area and have tons of reading material, brochures and history about the house itself, this was a nice added touch and actually quite interesting to hear some of the stories they shared.
The B&B is located right off of the main road, a quick walk to a grocery store if you need to stock up on anything. There is a walking trail on the other side of the pond, a beautiful library to explore and tons of shops and restaurants either within walking distance or a short drive into Erin.
None of us were from the area, and we definitely underestimated the amount of stuff to do while we were there. There is something for everyone, we are definitely planning to come back again.
I would encourage anyone reading this review to book yourself in to Hillsburgh House by the Pond- you will not be disappointed!!
Staying at the Hillsburgh by the Pond B&B for two nights was an absolute delight. We often stay at B&Bs when we travel, but this one was extra special. Jen and Scott could not have been more kind, hospitable, knowledgeable of the area, or better chefs! My room was beautifully antique and surprisingly modern all in one. The bed, pillows, and linens were amazing, and the bathroom was one to write home about! I could relax in that enormous tub or shower for hours! I loved the healthy snack that was awaiting my arrival. I adored the many picturesque areas around the property to sit, relax, read a book, breath in the fresh air, and just “be.” I chose to have my culinary masterpiece of a breakfast on the porch and I felt like royalty at the amount of time, effort, and thought that went into my three courses. Jen and Scott made dinner reservations at a phenomenal restaurant within walking distance for me, and I enjoyed the atmosphere and live guitar music as much as the award winning food. I highly recommend this B&B, and if we are in the area again, we will absolutely be staying in this tranquil home again.
Our stay here was extremely comfortable, and a real treat for all of us - we had two rooms, one with a king bed for the adults, and my teens shared a room with two twin beds. Jennifer and Scott are welcoming hosts and provide great & varied breakfast (we stayed 4 nights). We especially appreciated the generous evening snacks. The house is absolutely beautiful and tastefully decorated. The rooms are large, and there is a large living room and TV room for the use of guests. Also, the teenagers gave the WiFi two thumbs up. Thanks for a great visit!
