Teri and Avril made our anniversary so special. The attention to detail and wonderful kind gestures from specialty baked goods to a beautiful card and ending with a fine breakfast that Teri prepared early for us. The bedroom was great and the early morning views priceless. I would recommend this B and B to anyone

The Old Schoolhouse Inn was wonderful. We enjoyed the large king bed, clean room and hot shower. The full Irish Breakfast was divine. They spoiled us with heart-shaped shortbread cookies to celebrate our anniversary. Wonderful place!
