Gracious hospitality is the hallmark of our high reputation.

From the first moment you consider making a reservation, guest satisfaction is our primary concern. We’ve spent a lot of time attending to details and guest suites are high on our priority list. Blessings on State is furnished in a casually elegant style, reflecting the history of our home while still welcoming you to relax and enjoy your stay. Our suites are luxurious and comfortable. Each second-floor guest suite is individually designed and offers a private bath and private sitting room. Both suites provide luxury linens, digital satellite television, WiFi, and all-season fireplaces. Our hot and cold beverage buffet, snacks and guest refrigerator are found just outside your door. Indulgent gourmet breakfasts are a fine dining experience served at your convenience between eight and eleven. Bedtime snacks and special seasonal offerings like iced tea and cookies on the front porch, homemade ice cream, and S’mores kits for the fire pit are available to our guests that Book Direct through this web site.


We encourage you to Book Direct

Hit the button in the upper right corner of each page to check availability of the suite of your choice and make your reservation. It’s easy and secure. Peruse the discounts and package offers available only through our web site. They are designed to enhance your stay even more. Please note that we now offer a “lodging only” option in an effort to compete with local unlicensed lodging rentals that keep popping up. We just celebrated ten years as a highly respected full service Bed & Breakfast and we’re committed to maintaining our high reputation and to continue meeting established Bed & Breakfast standards including full breakfast service, inspections for fire safety, food safety, etc., that others may ignore. We now list a reduced price “lodging only” reservation choice in order to compete on the Online Travel Agencies (OTA’s). This no-frills option eliminates our complimentary multi-course breakfasts, snacks and beverages and excludes all of our discounts and promotions. The food package is available at a fee with the lodging only option, and our Bed & Breakfast guests save money when they Book Direct. Booking directly through our web site allows us to put the money we’d normally pay in OTA fees toward discounts, promotions and other perks for you, our guest.
