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:

We appreciated how you would sit down and talk with us as though we were part of the family. It is easy to see why so many of your customers return. Thank you."
