We had booked a room in this inn to be strategically located for a visit to Longwood Gardens and Winterthur. Those gardens are only at a 10 minutes drive, one on the north and one on the south.
On our late arrival (after 7 PM) we were graciously greeted by a young lady who showed us our room, located on the ground floor of the main historical building. We also had a living room, almost private, although it is shared in principle by other guests. In fact, it is probable that people having rooms in adjacent buildings seldom use the living room.
Our room was of a decent size, cozy with a lot of character. It was clean and had been renovated to modern standards. We had our private balcony (where we could lock our bicycles) with a shaded path leading to the parking lot.
Charming! At the back of the inn, there is a large lawn with flowers, and a bench where one can sit and have a drink (BYOB) while watching the stars or the fireflies.
Breakfast was great both mornings we were there.
The inn provided us with tickets for Longwood at a discount price. Tea and cheese/biscuits were served at 4 PM when we came back, which was much appreciated. The landlady was kind enough to print for us suggestions of back roads, with less traffic, that we could take to go to Kenneth Square by bike (Looking at the speedy traffic in the area, we actually changed our minds...)
There are many restaurants nearby, and there is a binder available with all the menus. The personnel made the reservation for us.
Overall, we were very pleased with our stay and would definitely consider returning to this inn, if we happen to travel to this area again.
