Thank you for providing such a warm and gracious environment for what was a very special weekend. Your loving and meticulous attention to every detail was greatly appreciated: the candles, books and music in the rooms; the cozy robes, the delicious breakfasts and, of course, the New Year’s Eve gathering! We could not have found a lovelier spot for our incredible reunion. Do not be surprised to see us again same time next year!

Delightful place! Delightful people! We love the outdoor garden, and all the wonderful touches bringing the garden indoors. The snacks and breakfast were delicious.

We enjoyed our brief visit. Wish we could stay longer. I love being surrounded by nature. What a contrast to the city!

Thank you for providing us with the perfect setting for romance and relaxation. The room was absolutely perfect! The food was delicious. You are both very kind and gracious hosts. This was a very special weekend for us and we will never forget it. We hope to return soon.

About an hour after we arrived, Howard asked me what I was thinking about. What a pleasure to realize that my response was “nothing.” Not work, the house, our family, just the moment. This was a place to use all our senses. Listening to the birds, the feel of butter yellow towel or a warm whirlpool. A bottle of wine, your great cookies and coffee. The sweet smells of your soaps and the pleasures of watching the fire. We are already anticipating a return visit. P.S. This is one the very few places that Howard, who is 6’5″ could actually enjoy a bathtub.

What a wonderful, tranquil slice of heaven you have here. This has been such a romantic way to spend our first anniversary. An incredible escape to a timeless place. Every personal touch you have made from the beautiful, fresh cut flowers and cozy robes to the delicious fruit liquor and sweet Hershey’s kisses has truly made our stay more memorable. Your distinctive decorating is adorable. Our worries melted away in the herbal water of the Jacuzzi, our souls were soothed in the warmth of the flickering fireplace, and our spirits were rejuvenated basking in the morning sunlight of our private deck as we gazed upon your charming garden and meticulously manicured grounds. The atmosphere is certainly conducive to loving. Thank you for creating such a lovely inn.

I am so glad we stumbled across your doorsteps. It must have been fate. I have inspired by your creativity and have plans to get to work on my own “home sweet home.”

This is has been our favorite B&B ever! I particularly like the garden theme decorating, and the ever-present connection to the garden by way of porches, decks, and balconies.

    A perfect winter weekend getaway.Jerry was very knowledgeable with things to do during our stay, and information on a summer trip as well. Relaxing, peaceful and enjoyable.
    We had to travel from the Chicagoland area during a snowstorm to get here, but it was definitely worth the drive.

    The Garden Grove was the perfect getaway! We were greeted with such a warm welcome and they immediately helped us find places in the area to see. Also, the breakfast was phenomenal and the best part was, that it was brought right to our room. The small personal touches to the room were so thoughtful and lovely. This was by far an amazing place to stay and we would highly recommend it to anyone!
