The mansion was lovely and the staff very friendly and helpful. The mansion is beautiful and unique. We were there before Christmas and it was decorated beautifully. Breakfast was generous and had a good variety of items so everyone should have something they like. Lots of snacks, drinks, candy around for guests...very nice touch. Lots of public spaces to use....

As a local wedding photographer I love photographing weddings here. My favorite time of the year to be here is the fall. The trees are gorgeous! Pam and Dana are wonderful hosts who offer such person care and interest to their clients.

My four college friends and I celebrated 31 years of friendship at the Vrooman Mansion the weekend of October 23-25, 2015. We had the Carriage House to ourselves and it was extremely relaxing and enjoyable. We walked to the Vrooman Mansion to have the unbelievably delicious breakfast! The owners and employees went above and beyond the call of duty to...

I wouldn't normally think B&B for my business travel, but having stayed at this place I WILL stay there again. The rooms were nicely appointed. The breakfast was great and quick-but-unhurried; I thought of my colleagues who were eating typical hotel breakfast fare. Also, the rates were pretty comparable to the nicer hotel chains, so that was a plus.

My husband and I spent three wonderful nights in Julia Vrooman's Suite. The restoration of the Vrooman Mansion is impeccable, starting with the grand staircase leading from the foyer to the upstairs. From the long gloves draped across a dresser and the hats and hatboxes on a closet shelf to the beautiful wallpaper in each room, it's clear that this...

Thinking of my weekend at Vrooman Mansion brings a smile to my face! As soon as I entered the lovely manor, I felt welcomed and pampered by the friendly and accommodating staff!

An absolutely lovely facility -- perfectly restored and wonderfully maintained. Excellent service from the moment we arrived -- greeted with fresh baked brownies. The rooms are all clean and spacious. The in-room air conditioning was adequate even for a somewhat steamy July weekend. The food was simply incredible. The finest fresh fruit each morning. Delicious coffee. Tasty quiche. All in...

This is a beautiful home with gracious staff and very romantic rooms. There are three albums of family history that are most enlightening about the family, WW1 and food security (Mr. Vrooman was Undersecretary of Agriculture for Wilson), and highlights of Julia Vrooman's many accomplishments including breadmaking! The bed was not the most comfortable but the delicious and elegant breakfast...

We stayed in the carriage house, with en suite bathroom, and even a shared sitting room with fireplace and a kitchen. Holiday decorations added to the charm. Wine in the sitting room in the main house surrounded by Holiday trees made for a memorable evening. The staff and owners could not be nicer.
