A Gracious Welcome...

Today, the carefully restored Thomas Bond House Bed and Breakfast warmly welcomes its guests, with an ambiance of quiet luxury. Stay in rooms carefully restored to the 18th Century Federal Period. In winter, a crackling fire in the marble fireplace beckons the visitor to the charming parlor to relax or enjoy a game of chess or bridge at the game table, while sipping on a complimentary glass of sherry or brandy. Weekdays, guests are served a continental breakfast featuring freshly squeezed orange juice and muffins, baked fresh daily. On weekends, guests enjoy a sumptuous breakfast. Evenings start with complimentary wine and cheese.
