We are located across the street from the award-winning INN AT LANGLEY, featuring Chef Matt Costello's famed wining and dining experiences, and where many summer weddings are hosted. If you're in town for one of their weddings, ours is the perfect location for spending the weekend!

A coffee maker, electric tea pot, small fridge, and microwave oven are located nearby, but there are no large cooking facilities. Remember, our home enjoys dogs so IF YOU ARE DOG ALLERGIC, we are not a good fit. Interaction with GuestsInteraction with GUESTS varies according to what our guests wish. With a private entrance guests can enjoy total privacy and not interact with us at all. Alternatively, if they wish to chat and "pick our brains," we are friendly to that too. Likewise, if our guests enjoy household pets, our dogs - True (a golden retriever) and Holly (a terrier) are more than friendly! HOWEVER, IF YOU ARE DOG-ALLERGIC, RAVEN ROOM would NOT be a good fit.
