Feeling the need to recover from, well…whatever?
In light of the Coronavirus, wellness has become so top of mind. And this is especially true for the traveler: where small, bright, and beautiful matter. Small number of rooms (5), brightly lit, sparkling clean and disinfected daily (think OCD), and beautifully maintained indoor and outdoor spaces.
As the owner of the Ellwanger Estate B&B, as well as a nurse, midwife, preservationist, farmer, and environmentalist, we are paying much more attention to wellness as a lifestyle.
So, WELCOME to the Ellwanger Estate B&B where mindful wellness and cultural tourism come together for “Welltality”.

“Salt therapy is a natural therapy that has been practiced since the 18th century. It involves inhaling dry salt, which can help cleanse both the airways and the skin to relieve congestion, inflammation and skin irritations. In a salt rooms or salt cave a halogenerator grind up pharmaceutical grade salt into minute particles that become airborne when dispersed into the room.”
In all your travels, I wish you “Welltality”! ~Rosemary
