We arrived on a rainy day and thought our plans would be drowned, but ended up thoroughly enjoying the cozy atmosphere of the Tavern! The hosts were attentive to our every need and the room was exquisite. There is great attention to detail, with modern marble bathrooms in an historic building that brings you back to a simpler time. I've stayed at B&B's that are cramped and uncomfortable, but this one is spacious and quite livable, which we would have loved to do and never come home! When we finally got out to see the town, it complimented the Tavern with its charm and history. The only thing that got us out of our snug bed (I had to check the mattress, since I never slept so well!) was the great breakfast and amazing tea that they serve. There is a unique display of tea cups and pots and an equally intriguing array of choices to drink. I love this place and hope to make it a regular stop on our summer vacations.
