What a wonderful way to escape being trapped in the city after the worst winter. The weather certainly agreed with our visit and we saw the sun shine for the first time in months! (not to mention the fact that I'm sitting on the porch without a coat and 60 degree temperatures!) This home is absolutely beautiful and the views are stunning! Basic Necessities  was a fabulous restaurant and definitely a must visit. Thank you  for welcoming our dog Toby and for the warm hospitality. I'm a country girl at heart and think this place might be converting my husband! Thanks again!

We came to celebrate our 7 year wedding anniversary.WOW what a special place. My husband surprised ms so I wondered why we'd need to drive 3 1/2 hours , but soon we were headed up the grand entry of this beautiful home.  It was late and teh comfy bed welcomed us.  The next day we took a drive and were mesmorized with the views.  When we returned to The Mark Addy we were glad to be in its quiet peace.  Dinner was Fabulous!!  The  owners worked tirelessly to ensure the 4 courses arrived at just the right time and were tasteful.  We've really enjoyed our stay.  This is our 4th and favorite B&B experience.

.... PERFECT decompression zone.  We were so happy to receive a room that allowed our 2 1/2 year old daughter a separate, special place to sleep (the daybed alcove).  The views from the room were unexpectedly unspoiled.  Leslie did everything possible to make our stay comfortable including giving directions to child frienly hikes where we could cool off in the 100 degree heat.  I could tell right away that The Mark Addy Inn would have the relaxing atmosphere we were looking for.  While there we visited Hilltop Berry Farm, Vertas Winery, Waltons Mountain and Pauls Creek and ate at the Thai Mex II.  Breakfast was perfect.  We were not disappointed about anything!

“Leslie and Rafael, This place was a wonderful place to spend our first days together as husband and wife. Even though we weren’t able to see or enjoy the many attributes of this peaceful inn. We were able to rest and cherish our time together in this beautiful room surrounded by the rolling green. Both of you made our stay feel like a home away from home. We know that god gave us a special gift by helping us find a place owned be a Israeli. Blessings on you and your family and may you have many many more than satisfied guest (and Israelis)”
