During the week breakfast is provided at the White Rhino Coffee House which is a short walk down Main Street. On the weekends, breakfast is provided at 9:00am in the dinning room at the Inn.



"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."

Special Occasions

“My husband and I stayed here the night before and the night after our wedding. We got married at Scarborough Fair and this location was ideal. The thematic design of the property only added to our "special day". The house is wonderfully appointed, comfortable, clean and very inviting. The host couple are charming and the breakfast amazing. Walking distance to the old city center it is a perfect oasis.”
