This is a charming, if a little quirky, old house, with historical connections and interesting architectural features. We stayed for two nights in the Tibbetts Room, on the third floor. With sleeping for four, in two seperate rooms, there was an unfinished feel about Tibbetts but the spare bed gave us plenty of space for repacking our cases prior to our return home. The bathroom was smallish, with period fittings, and shower (no bath). We loved the old wooden floors and the period decor.
A very warm welcome from Gretchen, with tea/coffee and cookies on offer, really set the scene for a very enjoyable stay. Gretchen just exudes calmness and gentleness, ideal for setting a restful atmosphere. Janel, as well as cooking superb-tasting breakfasts, also proved to be a very good porter, carrying our two suitcases upstairs with no apparent effort!
The rooms were very clean and warm and the views to front and back were beautiful.
The location is very good for the Lakes and for Portsmouth, a good place for a day visit.
In summary, a charming place to stay where we were made to feel as family rather than customers! We are happy that we chose the Wakefield Inn and would definitely revisit next time we are in the area.
