I'm sorry it took me so long to write a review about my stay. Well here goes. I needed a place to stay for one night(a friday, no less). I didn't think anyplace would say it was ok. When I called the Stephen Daniels House, and spoke to Kay, she told me that she had an opening for that evening. When I got there, I was greeted by Kay. She gave me a tour and a some history about the house. Then, she showed me to my room. The room was lovely, but, it had a shared bathroom. I don't feel comfortable with that. But, seeing that I was the only one there that night, it didn't matter. The antiques and the history of the house was so interesting. Kay was a delight to listen to. I met Robin, who was an absolute delight. On Saturday morning I sat down to breakfast, and Kay sat with me. I was meeting my friend at around 10:00, but, would have loved to sit a while and listen to Kays many stories. I will definitely stay here again. But, I would request the room with the private bathroom. (I didn't know about it until I read a previously listed review). You won't be dissappointed if you stay at the Stephen Daniels House!!
