My husband and I spent two nights mid-week here for a getaway to celebrate our 25th anniversary. This is a quaint inn with a lot of interesting history. The service was fabulous. We were greeted by name and were made to feel at home. There was another extended family (about 4 generations) that was also staying here at the time and we hardly ever heard anybody else when we were in our room. The other family was a lot of fun to see around the place too.
This is a great place to go as long as you don't expect much from the breakfast. The fresh fruit and croissants were fabulous. The coffee mediocre and the main entrees were ... meh. This Inn would benefit from a breakfast chef who can do more with an omelet than add cheese to eggs and made pancake batter from scratch. In an area abundant with fresh produce in August, it seemed odd to me that more of it isn't featured in their menu. I noticed several bakeries in the area and not using bakery bread for the french toast is a mistake.
In any case, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would come back for another visit. The rooms are spacious, clean and wonderfully comfortable. Everything (in fact) is top notch ... except for the lackluster breakfast. I hope they find a creative breakfast chef, because that would put this Inn in the big leagues :)
