Ilona, you crepes were to die for and the cinnamon bread was the best I ever had. We looked forward to getting up each morning to rush down and see what great gourmet delights you had for us. Thanks so much!

We were blown away by the beautiful table settings and all the antiques and art in your very elegant dining room. The decor just set the scene for the fantastic breakfasts that you served us during our stay. All we needed was a light snack mid-day because your ample breakfasts carried us for most of the day. The were soooo delicious! Thanks Ilona

Breakfast is delicious at Hemingways
Breakfast is delicious at Hemingway's

The Bed and Breakfast experience is best at breakfast. This is the time you get to enjoy yourself with a sumptuous, yet leisurely feast, while you mingle and meet other guests from all over the world. This is what sets Bed and Breakfasts apart from other types of accommodations. Hemingway's dining room is the perfect setting for these special meetings of guests. When we asks guests where there favourite places to visit are, usually they reflect that it was not the place, but the good times they had while they were there that they remember. This is what the Bed and Breakfast experience is all about. Good times, new friends and great food. It just does not get any better!
