We booked two rooms for ourselves and our son on a college tour. Great breakfast and could walk to the campus. Beautiful surroundings with a welcome glass of wine and friendly Inn keepers. We will be back for sure.

This gracious mansion is beautiful inside and out. I'm not usually a fan of Victorian, but I may be changing my mind. The huge windows assure abundant light; the rooms (public and otherwise) are big and comfortable. Paul, the owner & host, has covered every detail: pretty, homey rooms; marvelous bathrooms; free WiFi throughout (and it works!). Even an urn of umbrellas next to the front door.
There is a big salon with several seating areas as well as a coffee bar (with complementary homemade cake and cookies), a grand piano, and a fire. There are current magazines and newspapers on hand, as well as some wonderful old books about the area-- the kind you really want to sit down and flip through.. The furniture is all antique, but big and comfy. Outside this room is a deep, wrap-around porch with comfortable outdoor furniture. Parking is ample and free.
The Inn is right next to the campus of Lafayette College-- this area of town is hilly and very pretty. There are good, small restaurants and delis within walking distance.
We can't imagine anything that might be lacking. We'll be back.

It's not an impersonal hotel
It's not an over-personal B & B
It's just right, in between, as close to a home away from home can be.

The DOG-friendly aspect was very important to us. The Lafayette Inn accommodated our baby in every way--we never had to break our "PACK."

We love your all night cake & cookies--the chocolate chip coffee cake was the BEST late night snack!!

Thanks--we'll be back:)

Laura & Paul,
Everything was just wounderful on our stay. You and your staff made us feel right at home. Your B&B is great, from cleanliness to your enjoyable breakfast. Also, we liked the history of the building. I would highly recomend your B&B to others.
Thank you again, Frank & Jeanne

Staying at the Lafayette Inn made such a difference compared to being at a chain motel miles away from campus. We were able to check in and then walk to meet our son and his roommate for dinner at a restaurant just a few blocks away.

The location, accommodations and service met our needs beautifully and the staff was very gracious. We hope to have many more stays at this inn.

I just checked out of the Lafayette Inn and had a most enjoyable experience. I was traveling with my teenage son on a college road trip. We both felt very comfortable at the Inn. It was super convenient to the college and the staff was very friendly.
The breakfast was completely adequate with a choice of omelet or Belgian waffles plus sausage, bacon, fruit, muffins, cereal and yogurt. Not anything that would be considered gourmet but plenty of choice for everyone.
Really the highlight of the Inn was our room. The beds were very comfortable, the bathroom luxurious, a DVD player provided and free wireless internet.
