My husband and I stayed at the Farnsworth House Inn January 26th - January 28th in the McFarlane Room. Our room was very nice, there's a tv and alarm clock, they provide a hair dryer, shower soap, some plastic cups, towels, a large dresser and a nice closet with drawers as well.

If you wanted to make a dinner reservation in our Meade and Lee Dining Rooms and let us know that it is her birthday, we could do something special for your dinner! We could do a champagne and a special dessert if you like! Just make sure to let us know when you make the reservation and let your server know when you arrive!
