Definitely coming back again and again!! First time at a bed and breakfast and its convinced me. Such an historic home, beautifully kept. We were in town for a go kart race but i will return just to enjoy the stay and see the sights. Pat is amazing, does a fresh delicious spread for breakfast and such a sweet host. Made me feel right at home.

Such a wonderful experience! We enjoyed a relaxing few days in warm temperatures. Our host was so helpful and created a calming atmosphere in pace with the history of the home. So much historic charm in the entire town. I was very happy we chose the Denham house. It is in a quiet area, not on the main road. We had a great time!

We’re on a cross country trip and really wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you Pat for your lovely hospitality to cyclists!!
