The gourmet breakfasts were the best. My overall favorite was the 5pm wine and cheese get togethers on the screened in porch. Douglas and Robert were gracious and interesting. I...

This is my second stay at Aldrich Guest House and I wasn't disappointed in my return. Robert & Douglas made the visit just as warm and inviting as before. They are so cordial and friendly, without being overwhelming. The house was decorated wonderfully for Christmas, with perfect touches. Because the house wasn't booked for the night, we were given our...

The house is beautifully decorated in simple and sophisticated colors and textures while keeping the...
