As I stepped into the Sewall Inn away from the familiar din of cars, sirens, and construction Boston offers as daily soundtrack, I felt as Lucy must have felt as she crossed the threshold of the wardrobe into that wonderous, otherworldly land of Narnia. The first room you enter is a combination dining/sitting room fresh out of an Austen novel. I was greated by one of the many gracious innkeepers who made my stay feel like a visit to a home I've never had. My room came complete with four large windows letting in magnificent light to reveal a fireplace, a dangerously comfortable king-size bed, a silk upholstered fainting couch, and modern amenities such as a television, dvd player (the inn has a selection of dvds available), and telephone. The bathroom was clean and fully stocked. There were snacks available at all times in the sitting/dining room and in the morning there was a full breakfast served offering hot and cold foods of higher than average quality. I have stayed in many hotels, inns, and b&b's across America and Europe and I can say that none of them have been quite like the Sewall Inn in its charm, comfort, and ability to enchant one's imagination.
