I discovered this gem via trip advisor. Kathy and Joe are gracious hosts who truly enjoy sharing their home. Breakfast is phenomenal! Take a weekend out of the city and get lost in the woods. You won't regret it.

We chose The Dominion House for its proximity to a wedding venue (less than a 5 minute drive to Blooming Hill Farm) and we were so glad we did! Kathy and Joe were wonderful hosts!

The front porch was beautifully lit and welcomed us after a very long drive, late at night. The Inn owners were happy to show us around and share some historical stories about the home, even though it was very late.

Thank you Barb and Dale, You really hit on all the wonderful points of our B&B. We are so glad you got to enjoy the surroundings. We are a very quiet relaxing place. Most people are here for a quick event and don't always get to enjoy our property as you did. Hope to see you again. More

We found The Dominion House while searching for a B&B not to far from a wedding we were attending. The wedding party had blocked rooms at a motel but, being B&B owners ourselves, bed and breakfasts are our preferred accommodations. We are so glad we found this inn and Joe and Kathy. The hosts were charming; the breakfasts amazing; the... More

Kathy and Joe's large, historical home is brimming, antiques, charm and good cheer. We had a such a special weekend out of the city with our toddler daughter and in-laws. It's rare to find a B&B so welcoming of children and that still feels like an indulgence. The breakfasts are a gourmet treat! We will definitely be back.
