"Attended a wedding in the area and decided to stay at 600 Main for the evening after the wedding. It was fabulous!!! Innkeeper Vicki was so friendly and accommodating for pick up of keys, providing information, etc. Rooms were perfect and although there were other visitors at the B&B that evening, it was so quiet and peaceful. In the morning we were greeted with a 3-course breakfast that was outstanding. We would give 600 Main a 10-star rating if we could and will definitely return if we are again in the area!!!"
