"What a perfectly lovely place to relax and rejuvenate. Four posh bedrooms and comfortable common areas provide plenty of room to lounge around (even in pjs) and chat, watch movies, read books, or simply gaze at the interesting accoutrements."

"Wow! This place is wonderful. Mary and Howard were so genuine, kind, helpful, and considerate. Breakfast was delicious and the rooms were extremely comfortable. Located off Main Street, it is close to everything you could ever need."

life-changing breakfast

What a magical place! Innkeepers Mary and Howard were incredibly kind and gracious, going out of their way to ensure my partner and I were comfortable and very well fed :-) Breakfast was sumptuous and beautiful: Prosciutto-wrapped melon to start, followed by a cheesy frittata with farm sausage and fresh-baked cranberry and orange scones served on antique French porcelain plates.
