Even on cold, snowy night, the staff of The Showers Inn was friendly and helpful getting us settled in The Composer house. We checked in at 9 p.m., and the staff person met us with a bucket of ice and two wine glasses. She was very helpful, turning on the fire place, and making sure we were comfortable. Breakfast the...

I'm delighted you enjoyed your stay with us! It's our pleasure to accommodate our guests any way we can, so making sure you had ice and a cozy fire was no problem at all. It's great to hear you were a big fan of the ginger French toast and omelette, too! Looking forward to having you back in the future.... More

Nice combination of building and surroundings with character and modern amenities. Courtyard was beautiful in the snow and made it seem like a European get-away. Breakfast was well done and dining rooms provided spaces for separate conversation. Will be back!

It's also great that you enjoyed breakfast, too -- that's an integral part of the bed and breakfast experience! Hope to have you back again soon,... More

Sorry about the mix-up with the door, Meaghan. I completely understand why that must have been frustrating, but it was not done on purpose. I'm delighted that you found the room to be so relaxing and comfortable though -- I hope the amount you enjoyed your stay made up for the minor mishap at breakfast. Hope to see you again... More

This is the 2nd time my wife and I have stayed at the Inn. The rooms are great! We were in the Stardust room which features a great fireplace with 2 comphy wingback chairs perfect for sipping wine on a very cold night. Staff is very helpful and hot breakfast was excellent!

The B&B is nice; comfy and clean. My complaint is that I was very worried about a late check-in and called twice to make sure it wasn't going to be a problem. When I got there I reminded the owner that I had called and he said "Oh, ha, guess my phone was off." If I had had to cancel... More
