Excellent!
The very active bird feeder in front of the house was a special treat. We saw goldfinches, bluebirds, tufted titmice and house wrens among others.

Our stay was wonderful. The Homestead was clean and welcoming, and our innkeeper was very helpful. I loved the record player in the room and the selection of records they chose for us. Such a unique and quaint place. It was nice eating our breakfast while watching the birds, chipmunks, and squirrels too.

GREAT place to stay!!
The owners were extremely gracious, generous and warm but also very conscientious of my interests and needs. Impeccable, quiet and cozy room, excellent bed, awesome bathroom and shower. Delicious boxed breakfast in the am and so many sanitizing touches- can’t wait to return!
