The Inn is old, with old furnishings and wonderful mismatched tableware. The grounds are lovely, calm and peaceful. The breakfast is pretty and filling. We didn't need the AC but used the fan in the room. The spaces are kind of dark due to the small windows in the original building. The feeling of the Inn was serene.

We really enjoyed talking with Nina and Hans. The bed was better than my own brand new bed. The food was great! Love the outdoor patios and back room. I wish we had stayed an extra day just to relax. We definitely plan on staying again.

What a gem! We stayed here for lack of other similar type accommodations in the area and were very satisfied with the Inn. Hans and Nina were very welcoming, the rooms were clean and comfortable, breakfast was great, and the grounds and Inn were delightful.

We stayed at the Oscar Swan Inn for three nights. Our room and bath were very clean. The A/C worked well. The bed was comfortable. The shower (tub) was standard for a remodeled B&B. The breakfast buffet had plenty of food, including lots of fruit and coffee cakes. The wifi worked well, we didn't try the TV. There was no... More

My friend and I stayed here when we took a workshop at the Fine Line Creative Arts Center. We had a blast. We stayed in the Twin Rooms Suite. There are rooms for guys and rooms for ladies. I highly recommend staying here if you like historic houses. Breakfast was excellent.

My husband and I have attended several events at the Oscar Swan Inn and each time we come away raving about the food. Without fail, the menu--is varied, abundant, (one can make as many trips to the buffet as one wishes) and so delicious that it is difficult to reserve room for dessert. Usually there is a roast, plus fish... More

We were the recipients of a delightful family party for our 50th (!) wedding anniversary. We and our children all participated in the planning of this event and were extremely pleased by the flexibility shown by the owners, Nina and Hans. We were able to make our own selections as to menu and bar service. We made multiple visits over... More

I have attended three events here. A ladies luncheon, a 50th birthday brunch and now I just hosted a baby shower. Wonderful food, good value for your money and people always comment on the pretty setting. Very easy to get to, right off a main road but once you pull into the drive you'd think you were out in the... More

The Oscar Swan Inn is an amazingly charming establishment. Each room is carefully decorated in antique furniture and decor. With the help of Nina, I hosted a small dinner party for my wife's birthday. The food was delicious and service impeccable. I highly recommend attending any special dinner party to try out the OSI. You will not be disappointed!!

This was a great find. Beautiful grounds, above ground stone wading pool, lovely garden. The rooms are tastefully decorated with lovely artworks. And the breakfast! One of the very best gourmet breakfast buffets I have ever seen. Outstanding locally sourced and wonderfully cooked dishes .We absolutely will return.
