Flower Patch and Diamond House Bed and Breakfast - The Experience

Your Bed & Breakfast Experience

Lynne and Bill Harshbarger opened their B&B to the world in 1988 when their children were leaving home. While they worried over what might please their guests and how the house should look and what to fix for breakfast, they soon discovered that it was the whole experience of a B&B that is most attractive to visitors. Guests like everything. Especially they enjoy the quiet music and the art work, but most of all they enjoy sharing their lives and telling their stories. We've listed some of their comments here:

"Thank-you for having us in you beautiful home. We felt very welcome. The dinner was excellent. We can't wait for breakfast.
We love the Maple Room. We love the lamps."
