Barry and Peggy were very welcoming and accommodating even prior to arrival. We received emails inquiring about dietary needs and other details to make our stay comfortable and they were prepared for us on arrival. Their home is gorgeous, the breakfast wonderful, and we regretted being only able to stay one night!

Barry and Peggy are the perfect B&B couple - warm, welcoming, helpful, conversational, extensive experience. The Inn has been beautifully finished by this couple - numerous collections, comfortable bedding, quiet town, and Barry's magical 3-course breakfasts! This is a lovely "landing spot" to allow you to explore this HUGE natural Adirondack area.

A clean and cozy B&B tucked away in the mountains of upstate New York. We are 'foodies' and this was literally the best breakfast we've ever had, restaurant or otherwise. Be aware that although each room has its own bathroom, they may be on different floors. Ask about this when booking if you have mobility issues. We would go again;...

Lovely home and lovely couple. Great room and comfortable bed. Breakfast was fantastic, more than enough. Nicely decorated and spotless. Enjoyable conversation with Peggy and Barry as well as the other guests. Stayed only one night with my wife but will absolutely be back.
