    My four day stay was fabulous from the day I arrived to the day I left. The whole place is clean, beautiful, interesting with the best food ever.

    The Homestead is beautiful, immaculate, full of antiques and 1800 era decor. I spent a lot of my time going thru the wonders of each room, and the gorgeous surrounding lawns and gardens, including a real shrubbery maze. Mary Kate and Chet are wonderful, fun loving couple, who make you feel so welcome that you feel like one of their family while they see to your every need. I highly recommend the Homestead for just a stay or any special event in your future. I know they are both waiting for your arrival with a smile on their face.

    Words cannot accurately express how wonderful Mary Kay, her husband and her staff made my wedding day. The bed and breakfast is immaculately decorated and the grounds are breathtaking. During my planning period, Mary Kay answered every email I send within hours. She was so helpful and her attitude caused any anxiety I may have had to subside. The day of my wedding went better than I could have imagined. My guests were speechless at how amazing the venue was and how wonderful the staff was. I can't thank The Homestead enough for the amazing memories they have provided me. It was a dream come true!
