Due to the historic nature of Amanda’s Bequest Bed and Breakfast and for the safety and comfort of all our guests:

This home is made of very old timber. For the safety of all, we mostly use electric fireplaces for ambiance and heat. Smoking is NOT permitted. Burning of candles is NOT permitted.

We cannot accommodate pets. (The Dog Star Ranch is a fantastic local place to leave your treasured dog. They will love it, and you will too.)

We generally cannot accommodate children under 10 unless it is in a whole house reservation…or without prior discussion, please call Valerie to discuss, as this farm stay can be delightful for children and it may be that there are no other guests booked for the time you are traveling with children.
