Innkeeper Amy is a lovely, welcoming host. It felt like I was visiting a friend. Ask her to give you a tour of the house, the stories of it's history are fascinating. There's even a Tiffany window. I was pretty tired by the time I arrived here and I completely forgot to take photos of the room! But trust me,... More

We held our wedding ceremony at the Mandolin Inn and it could not have been more intimate or beautiful. Innkeeper, Amy, was amazingly helpful as we were organizing the event from out of town. Even before booking her Inn, she emailed us and provided numerous suggestions and recommendations regarding an officiate, restaurants nearby for dinner, etc. She responded to each... More

Innkeeper Amy Boynton went out of her way to make our stay there momentous. The historic house is beautifully maintained and the breakfasts were fantastic. I would not hesitate to recommend this Bed and Breakfast to anyone.

We did a Valentine Days one night stay. The host arranged to meet us early. The room was clean, a bit cluttered, but the furniture was well maintained. The bath shower arranged was creative, but functional. The lower level of the house was beautifully restored, and well maintained. The owner has plenty of personality, she spins thread, has cats, and... More

It was a pleasure to have you two stay here! - I'll take your remark about clutter under advisement and contact you about specifics. You are the first to suggest this, but I'm assuming you think the room doesn't need two seats. I'll also poll other guests. Thanks for your input. - Amy More

Neither of us had ever stayed at a bed and breakfast before. We really needed a weekend get-away and didn't want to go to a cold/impersonal hotel.
