Supurlative Bed and Breakfast
Apr 13, 2015 by: Larry M from Missoula, Montana, United States
What more to say than PERFECT! The little historic town sets the pace and you feel like you've stepped back into a more gentile and kind time. The Inn has a library and other semi-public areas that welcome, entertain, and quench your appetite for company, food and drink. Coffee and tea anytime, treats, and a wonderful breakfast and across the street is a wonderful surprising restaurant. It's 5 star, so don't miss.

This is a gorgeous property located very close to Antietam. It's well situated in the town of Boonsboro for walking to shops and restaurants. Each room is named for a famous romantic couple from a book. They're all very different. I love when a B&B makes every room special. Hospitality-wise it's very well run. There's a wine and cheese gathering in the evening and a nicely stocked fridge with sodas and water. The triple chocolate cookies were wonderful. We felt very welcomed by Jeanne. The porches are deep and have tons of chairs for sitting and relaxing. It was raining so we didn't get a chance to use the patio but that is also lovely. My one complaint is there is no place to sit in the bathroom to get dressed. The bathrooms are huge so there's plenty of room for a small bench for sitting or just keeping your clothes off the floor.
guess who owns this????

A Couples' Midsummer (or winter) Dream!
Jan 02, 2015 by: Scott p from New Milford, New Jersey
My wife and I stayed here as a Christmas present to each other. This was probably the most expensive B&B that we stayed in, but it was worth every dollar. We stayed in the T & O room located towards the front of the Inn on the second floor. As soon as you walked into the room you can tell that attention was given to every detail in the planning of this bed-and-breakfast. Each room comes with its own signature scent. Ours was a lovely lemongrass that was not overpowering. Everyone will tell you that one of the main attractions of this B and B are the bathrooms and they are right. With heated floors, oversize copper tubs, oversized shower with multiple jets and the most expensive toilet ever, you will find yourself spending a lot of time in the bathroom. Our room was located in the front of the Inn, which tends to be the noisier section with the outside traffic. This didn't bother us as we are used to it. But if you're looking for a more quiet experience, make sure you select the room towards the rear of the Inn. Our room also featured access to the second floor porch. It is my understanding that during the summer months people do gather outside, and you may find this awkward as they are right outside your room. When we arrived, the innkeeper was very pleasant offering refreshments and giving us a tour of the inn as she led us to our room. The Inn features several common areas, such as the lounge on the first floor and the library on the second floor as well as several outdoor spaces. you will find free refreshments such as sodas, water, and juices, available throughout the day in the lounge. Also some sweet treats are available in the dining area for your enjoyment. From 6 PM to 7 PM every night the Inn hosts a wine and cheese gathering for their guests. Take full advantage of this feature. The wine was quite good and the cheese display was excellent. It is a good time to get to know some of the other guests. We met a lovely couple who we wound up going to dinner with that night. The library features a wide selection of books not only from Nora Roberts, but from other popular authors as well. It also has a full computer station for your use. And they offer free coffee service with a Keurig machine and they make available a decanter of Jamison for your pleasure. One night after dinner, my wife and I used one of the Scrabble board games available in the lounge to end the night with a friendly game. The immediate area of Boonsboro is rich with history and local shops. Nora Roberts owns the bookstore in the gift shop across the street as well as to nearby restaurants: Dan's taphouse and Vesta Pizzeria. Breakfast is served daily from 8 to 9:30 AM. I would've liked to have seen an extended period for breakfast but it was not an issue. It is my understanding that they have changed from a buffet style breakfast to a served plate breakfast. Each morning we started out with a small dish followed by a main course. The breakfasts were both creative and delicious. Overall the value, experience, and the luxury of the Inn, are well worth every penny we spent. We will try to stay in the Wesley and Buttercup room on our next visit. We got to visit the room while speaking with another couple who were staying in it. It offers a private sitting area, fireplace, and a bathroom with a Jacuzzi style tub. This is a must visit for any Nora Roberts fan who has read her books, or any husband who wishes to take his wife away for romantic night or two.
Sisters birthday get away
Dec 11, 2014 by: Erin H from S. Windsor, CT
We booked the stay back in March when we heard about this inn via a Facebook post on Nora Roberts fan page. We drove the 6.5-7 hrs here from CT. We booked the Marguerite & Percy room (only room with two beds) along with the birthday package. Arriving we were shown our room with all the package items waiting... A bottle of champagne, cake, gift cards and full size shower/bath products of our rooms scent. The room was perfect for the 2of us to share. The bathroom shower with the different shower jets was amazing, the soft fluffy huge towels (on a towel warmer) we a nice touch. The inn has many quite areas to curl up to read/relax too. The breakfast was amazing on our 1st morning of a apple crape, pancakes, eggs and bacon...yum! The downside to our room is while sleeping you do hear the traffic from the street and for it being a small town, a lot of cars go by at all hours. But we dealt with it. The dinner options of Vesta and Dan's tap house are right across the street. Would come again!
