My husband and I were going to New Bedford for a concert, and wanted to stay just one night. We were thrilled we chose to stay at Captain Haskell's Octagon House, and that the Cottage Street Room was available for our visit.
My initial concern about staying in an inn with "Pet Friendly" as part of its name was quickly put to rest when we entered the beautiful foyer of this amazing house. Being an innkeeper myself I tend to notice details others might take for granted. This house was immaculately maintained.
Not having brought our two dogs with us, the two resident pooches Mickey and Daisy were all too happy to fill in and let us give them as much attention as we wanted.
Ruth was an amazing host, and we are already looking forward to another visit.
