“This stay was beyond memorable. I proposed to my girlfriend the weekend of this stay, and our stay at the Lovill House made that weekend even more special. The history we got to experience through the house was absolutely beautiful, but what made the stay even more intimate and personal was the innkeeper Ann, she made sure we were comfortable the second we walked in, and the breakfast... THE BREAKFAST she prepared was so so delicious with Farm to Table styled plates. To put it in fewer words, we will be back!”
