We were in the Charlestown area over the weekend and stayed at another facility that I will not mention. I had attempted to make a reservation with Janice (the owner) for the weekend but the inn was completely booked for Labor Day. Instead, we stopped by the flea market on Sunday to say hello to Janice and check the place out. Janice is well-known and well-respected in this area and is somewhat of a local celebrity at the flea market with various people seeking to speak with her. She was kind enough to chat with us for some time about the origin of the inn and told us some very cool stories about its history. She offered us a free tour and we were shown around by an employee of hers who was very kind, helpful and informative. The inn is in fantastic condition and it is a shame the tavern is no longer being used. We were shown the only available room that Sunday, which was lovely. I was truly wishing that we were staying at the General Stanton Inn instead of our own inn. The room we viewed was clean, beautiful and simply appointed, and had that special quality that only an historic inn can offer. I was so impressed with Janice and the Inn that we are looking forward to staying with her in two weeks' time.
