We stayed at the Thompson House, an 1870s Italianate architecture B&B, over Memorial Day weekend and were extremely pleased with our choice. The proprieters, Kathy & Butch, were so warm and lovely and made us feel very comfortable. We stayed in "Millie's Room" which has a jacuzzi tub that worked wonderfully. Breakfast was served at 8:30 and was very good. One morning Kathy served French toast with fruit topping, and sausage links. The second day it was an egg bake with homemade muffins and a chilled banana sprinkled with cinnamon and honey.
The mansion is beautiful and is perched on a hill overlooking the dam. Everything was so clean and tidy, and the grounds were blooming with lots of perrenials. It's a short walk (only a couple blocks) to the downtown area, which was perfect.
Our favorite place to have a cocktail & food was at Riverside on the Root. Can't wait to go back hopefully this summer when the weather is guaranteed to let us take advantage of the kayaking and biking that we missed out on this time due to the cold & rain.
