My husband found this inn online after we couldn't get into a place that was recommended to us. I am SOOO happy we ended up at the 1774 Inn. The location is just far enough away from hustle and bustle that you can actually relax and enjoy the sounds of tree frogs, birds, and of course nature itself. We loved sitting on the back lawn and seeing the seals on the rocks in the river, seeing a juvenile bald eagle fly by, and soaking up the sun.
The Inn itself is just GORGEOUS. Not a dark and dreary old home, but a wonderfully light and airy home. The colors that Jackie used to redecorate were splendid. My favorite being the yellow and white sitting room. Jackie and John were the best hosts I've ever experienced at a B&B. Their enthusiasm for their inn and the area was infectious. Her breakfasts were wonderful and it was very nice to be able to sit around the dining room table with other visitors and swap ideas of what to do. My only regret - not staying longer than 2 nights.
If you want a very peaceful place to relax, recuperate, and de-stress .... this is it. I really want to come back as it is centrally located & there was a lot we didn't get to see in the area.
John & Jackie, thank you for a wonderful time. Tom & Debbie W.
