Last minute reservation, as it was full everywhere else. And we're very happy we got it, not because it's all there was, but because of the Inn itself. It's not a B&B: it's not a "hotel." It is more of what it is called - an inn. There are only about a dozen or fewer rooms, each different. We had one that was likely on the smaller side of what they offer - the Laurel Room - but it was large enough for all our needs.
Comfortable queen bed, large pedestal sink (not my favorite fixture, but fine), huge bathroom with large jet tub. Could have used a set of drawers and a full length mirror, but that's small negatives, particularly for long stays, which ours wasn't. Since it's a downstairs room in a 150 year old wooden building, you do get noise from the upstairs.
But any of these negatives were outweighed by the positives. It's off the main loud tourist street, so you don't get the noise and hubbub, but it's a mere half block away. It's a quaint old historic structure with enough updating to make it fit for a modern traveler. The wine, cheese, fruit in the evening was wonderful. The more than continental breakfast pleased everyone.
The staff were all friendly and accommodating of everything. The lobby/wine/breakfast area is comfortable and charming. It gives one the feeling of a small European inn. We want to go back in the winter when they have a fire in the lobby fireplace, just to sit around on the couches reading and sipping wine....
