We visited The American Hotel a few years ago at the end of their high season and were treated extremely well. When we decided to get married and couldn't do so in Florida, we contacted His Honor Doug Plummer and asked if he would marry us. He looked at his schedule, the date was open, and we booked him.

My second time here and I always look forward to the three hour drive and the restful night sleep. The food is delicious. The schnitzel was out of this world. It was served with purple cabbage and was melt in your mouth good. The service is friendly and impeccable. I recommend the American hotel as a great overnight get away... More

Along with anjoying the restaurant of The American Hotel, we love staying at the hotel. It is so charming and quaint. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We enjoy a walk up and down the historic streets after dinner and before retiring to our room. Our latest dinner included the salmon and rack of lamb both of which... More

We've stayed here several times, the 3 hour drive to this Destination is so worth it. Doug and Garth are so welcoming, the food is 5 Star, the rooms are so lovely.....can't wait to come back!! The community is charming, with the promise of future development and growth. Every time we return, our group grows, happily

3 couples went for dinner at the American Hotel on a Saturday night. While walking along the front porch I glanced in the window and saw a lovely table set for 6 and I thought, I hope that's our table ! We did arrive about 15-10 minutes early and were told we would be seated soon....15 minutes later we were... More

We appreciate all of our guests comments. While I had visited the table and confirmed that our chef was taking care of her concerns, I was not aware of the extended time frame as he prepared an entirely new piece of fish. I have contacted our guest with an apology and am preparing to send her a gift certificate. While... More

Stopped in after a long drive, Austin at the front desk went out if his way to get me a room. Even though I stopped in during the dinner hour. I have stayed before and they are always so great. Doug and Garth make you feel like your stay is the most important thing for them. And they always seem... More

Wonderful attentive and fun hosts. Nicely decorated rooms, wonderful porches for sitting and relaxing. Beautifully restored. Can walk round points along main street easily. Pretty much what I was expecting.

Recently stayed here with my wife. Beautiful spot - very comfortable room and gracious hosts, Doug Plummer and Garth Roberts, who've put nearly 20 years of work into this place, could not have been more welcoming. The food here is five star - first class as well. We hope to come back, not only for the comfort and cuisine but... More

We have returned annually to The American Hotel and its hosts, Doug and Garth, to exist if only for a short time in the beautiful world they have created there. This is a world of carefully prepared and locally-sourced food served with warmth and style, charming guest rooms and lovely public spaces to chat with other guests and the hosts.... More

A beautifully restored old hotel which exudes charm. The owners Doug and Garth pay meticulous attention to detail and are delightful hosts. The rooms are comfortable, there is a lovely patio in the garden and the restaurant is great. We ate at the hotel three of the four nights we stayed there, most unusual for us. Food was well prepared,... More
