Absolutely a wonderful way to spend the start of or honeymoon! Ruth is kind and her dog chowder is so cute! The breakfast was out of the world. We stayed in Scarlets Hideaway which was perfect because it has a nice walkway down to the gazebo and hot tub. We had wine in the hot tub and gazed at the...

We spent the night before and the night of our wedding here after getting married at Dodson Orchards in april 2016 and I will say that this BnB was fantastic. Ruth was great as we arrived the first night after midnight due to multiple issues. She was accomodating and helped us find our way there. The grounds are beautiful with...

We spent three nights at the Plain & Fancy B & B in Scarlett's Hideaway. It was a lovely room and a wonderful experience. The room is tastefully, thoughtfully and romantically decorated. And it is private with an outside entrance. This is an old, renovated house, so there are some "creaks", but any issues were dealt with expeditiously. Our breakfasts...

I want to clarify that this is a review for a booked trail ride only. Although the place looked very welcoming, we did not stay there. Our family of 5 booked a morning guided horse trail ride and was very pleased with the results. Our family's horse experience ranged from very limited to none at all. Our guides were knowledgable,...

We celebrated our 36th anniversary with a visit to Johnson Shut-Ins and a stay at Ruth's terrific B&B in Ironton which was handy to everything. Our Butterfly room was spacious, comfortable, well-appointed and had a large and modern bathroom. We enjoyed borrowing movies from the DVD collection, soaking in the outdoor hot tub and taking a dip in the pool....

We had a nice and relaxing 4 nights at this B&B. Ruth is a great hostess and we never had any communication issues at all. We didn't use the pool, but it looked very clean and inviting. There is also an outdoor hot tub, but it was too hot outside; however, it's private and has nice views. The food is...

Staying at the B&B was the perfect quiet getaway for my husband and me. The rooms are very clean, and very cute! The breakfast in the morning was truly wonderful, a taste of home "country" cooking, and the presentation was worth an instagram pic! Ruth, the Inkeeper goes above an beyond to make sure your stay is wonderful, and makes...

Well - We book this for a quick get away for two nights while we visited some RV dealers in the area. First I read the post about Ruth not being responsive to requests--not true! Very nice lady that will accommodate any reasonable request. Primarily we liked the hot tubs (both in room and outside)...we enjoyed the outside so much...didn't...

Enjoying our 10 yr annv. we spent time getting to know Ruth, who prior managed this BB & is now transitioning into the business owner. We applaud her w/providing wonderful breakfast/exceptional dinners.

Fantastic! My daughter in Seattle rented the Plain And Fancy for her entire wedding party of six bridesmaids and six groomsman. Her fiancé is a Frenchman, so his parents and grooms flew in from France. We had no idea what to expect. What a delightful surprise! The rooms were perfect, Jacuzzi tubs in the bathrooms, chocolates on the pillows, sparkling...
