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:
"Absolutely Awesome! The best gourmet breakfast we have ever had. The service was fabulous, too, far better than Grand Hotel or Machinac Is.
You are very talented, blessed people! I Know the Red V.I.O.L.E.T.S. (our red hat group) will truly enjoy every part of their experience here. "
