We had a wonderful, relaxing stay at Turning Waters B&B! The house was charming and we loved our room with double whirlpool, fireplace, & king size bed. Brenda & Ford were very welcoming and we enjoyed getting to know them and sampling their beers. Breakfast was a delicious five course meal! We will definitely be back!

Beautiful renovated historic home. Lovely rooms, well appointed and the bed was extremely comfortable. Brenda and Ford were very friendly and helpful. They make a fabulous breakfast!

Had an amazing time this past weekend. Ford and Brenda have really taken it to a new level as hosts of this B&B. The breakfast each morning was unique and delicious. I'd never enjoyed beets before until I tried their beet muffin...Don't pass up a chance to try the beer either! Highly recommend.
