Lovely house in a great location close to the river, the Capitol building, the State Museum and restaurants on 2nd street. The house is approx. 100 years old and has lovely original wooden features which give it a warm feeling. Beautiful dining room and reception areas open to guests.
We chose the Bryce Room which overlooks the river and has windows on two sides and lovely wooden floors. It’s a sizeable room with good storage space (although a few extra hangers wouldn’t go amiss) and a wonderful pillow-top bed and comfortable pillows. The lights in the headboard were not working making reading difficult but hopefully a temporary blip. It’s also a quiet room despite there being a busy road outside.
Kitchenette area on landing available to guests with fridge and coffee and comp water, although the water was not replenished during our two day stay - the owner seemed quite laid back but I have little doubt that he would have replenished had we pointed it out.
Breakfast in the lovely dining room was okay with juice and breads and one baked item (oatmeal one day, French toast the next) – would have loved a fry-up!
Would definitely come again and heartedly recommend.
