I stayed at the Chambery Inn in december with my partner as a romantic getaway to the place where I grew up. The Chambery Inn was the old St. Mary's School in town, and since I attended St. Mary's (albeit in the new building) I felt a special connection to the building, which used to be located down Main St. behind the church until they basically shut the town down one day so they could move the building to its present site.
We stayed in La Normandie, I wanted to stay in the Jacuzzi suite but it was reserved already. The room was HUGE, large sitting area, plus a fireplace nook, fridge, coffee maker, bathrobes, etc. The bathroom has a towel warmer, as well as a jetted tub.
Breakfast, as others state, is delivered to your room in a wicker basket with tablecloth, you check off what you want to eat the night before and leave it on your doorknob before you go to bed. Ours was delivered exactly on time the next morning, and I must say everything was plentiful (and I'm a big guy and like to eat a lot!).
I didn't see any of the other rooms so I can't report on them. As for those saying there is nothing to do in the town of Lee. Maybe because I grew up there, it gives me insider knowledge, but there is plenty going on in town, just ask the locals!
The inn is located next to the fire station, and yes you may hear the fire whistle go off in the middle of the night. I guess having grown up with that in town, it didn't bother me in the least. I would also say for those looking for that authentic small-town experience, this is a working-class small town that still has an all-volunteer fire department that needs to sound the whistle to alert the firefighters they need to come to the station to respond to an emergency, so keep that in mind.
I recommend this inn to others, and I will stay here again. But please don't take the jacuzzi suite on the night I want to reserve it!
