My sister and I and our two pre-teen kids stayed two nights over the Canada Day weekend. Despite seeking to emulate the experience of travellers in the 19th century, Saya (our host) made our stay comfortable and interesting. She had good knowledge of the town and suggestions about things to do. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and while our rooms were not ensuite, we only had to share the bathroom (toilet, shower, sink) with each other. Breakfast was awesome, with enough choice to satisfy everyone. My only concern would be to mention that in the heat of the summer, screens on the windows would be helpful in the battle against the biting insects flying in, and a ceiling fan would also be helpful to keep the air moving and more comfortable without being too much of an anachronism to the period depiction of the hotel.
