In the "Home of Man's Best Friend," local Bed and Breakfast Inn’s, such as Gelbach Manor (established in 2006 by Rhonda Gelbach and Associates), and Cena’s Nook (Established in the early 1930’s by Cena Christopher Draper and her husband) provide the comfort and service of a five star hotel without the anxiety you experience in a bigger city. Each of these establishments offers several amenities that make you feel like you never left the comfort of your own home, including freshly prepared breakfast every morning from a select menu of items, select snack items available throughout the day, private bath areas, fire pits, fountain filled gardens, sun rooms, and finely tuned wooded viewing areas.

Of course, finding a place to stay is only half the battle, there is the task of entertainment while you’re here.
