The wraparound porch was lovely and the lounges and dining areas were a plus.

Affordable Luxury
This inn was a bit of luxury in my price range. From the pillows, to the sheets, to the towels. Very quiet, nice section of town. I would definitely stay here again.

A disappointment
These are challenging times Due to covid19, so I want to be mindful of that. But, our experience was really not that great And I think that the Inn needs to be a little more hospitable, especially now when business is not as strong as it was. we booked our stay through The hotel is presented as a pet friendly hotel, extra charges are not mentioned when you book. Then, I got an email saying there’s a 30$ cleaning fee. Everything is charged in advance as check in is contactless due to covid. Ok-although This pet fee is very high for a 129$ stay, and for a time when extreme cleaning is expected in all rooms regardless. I’ve never been charged that much for having a non shedding 13 year old poodle with me. Then, another surprise: we got charged 20$ for parking, which is not mentioned anywhere as well. So nice of the inn keepers to not mention it in the 3 emails they sent, or when they called me, or on any sign around the inn... Breakfast was a disgrace-a few stale bagels wrapped in plastic. and the bath tab was clogged. On the positive side, the hotel decor is nice and the toilet paper and towels are of Surprisinglyhigh quality. The bed was not comfortable and very lumpy. There was hair on the floor, even though the room was suppose to be sparkling clean due to the pandemic.i hope they used the 30 extra $ I paid to properly clean their rooms. Our bill ended up being 1.5 times what we thought it would be for an 8 hour stay. I was disappointed. Would not stay here again

Such a charming property. Friendly, helpful staff make the stay very pleasant and homey. Rooms are clean. Beds are turned down at night, fresh water is placed next to your bed with chocolates. Robes are in the closets for guests. The breakfast is deluxe. I forgot my phone charger next to the bed after I checked out. I called the hotel, they went up to the room immediately and left it at the desk so I could retrieve it later in the day. Look forward to visiting again.
