This Inn is a gem. What a great little find for a quick getaway. Ken is a great host. History is oozing from the inn’s pores. Great stay.

Nice place to stay
It was a great stay and everything was very good. The only thing that was lacking was the quality of the refurbishing of the inn, especially as you went up to the second floor.

Hospitality 5 Star!
Our experience was a cross between a luxury hotel and classy house. Hospitality was off the chart for one gentleman who runs the hotel. Thank you for having us. We definitely would visit again.

Everything was unique about this beautiful bed and breakfast! Ken gave a history of this house, on the historc registry, and was available for any needs. He made us a delicious breakfast both mornings and takes great care of the house and his guests.
