This is such a lovely place! We enjoyed every second of our stay. It was so much more than I expected it to be.
We arrived at 10 am and could leave our luggage in the lobby so we could already start exploring.
I travelled with my 18 year old son, he didn't miss tv or internet at all. It was like staying in a museum, nice furniture, lots of books to read or browse through.
The rooms were very clean and have really good beds. There are no outlets in the rooms but there are plenty in the living room. The shared bathrooms (with outlet) worked out fine.
In the evening you can sit in the lobby/living room or on the porch and share your adventures with other visitors or with the staff.
By the way, the staff is so great. Patty and Chris are warm, friendly, caring, very nice women who make you feel right at home. They're always in for a little chat.
We experienced 3 of the best days of our lives here.
