liked the location but that was about all. Arrived 9pm so had to call reception staff to open up-not too bad. Room was large but tired. Could hear coughing in room next door throughout the night. Breakfast was substandard-one cereal, very limited fruit selection,had some sort of egg croissant with minimal egg,no toast, and terrible coffee. And yes a vegetarian... More

Overall ok experience. Building is beautiful and clean. Location is ok, near the shops and restaurants but on a busy street. It has the potential to be great but lacks personality. Front deck process was efficient but no passion for the historic building or area. Common rooms are available but not inviting. Breakfast was ok. Again, a beautiful room and... More

The inn is simply beautiful. It's a great location just a couple blocks off the river and walking distance from everything. The inn gorgeous and the rooms are elegantly decorated. Too many B&Bs have a lot of stuff around and this place is just gorgeous. The public spaces and private rooms are really very nice. The staff was nice and... More

Our stay at the Graystone Inn was one of the most romantic places I have stayed. The inn is beautiful and one night we were the only guests. I felt like we were living in the mansion. The staff Joanne, Mary , Dale made us feel like family. Rooms clean and breakfast delightful. I would highly recommend and can not... More

This was a wonderful overnight getaway for my husband and I. The home is beautiful and peaceful. The location is great... very close to the riverfront and good dining. Breakfast was amazing. They served delicious key-limed stuffed french toast which was perfect for a warm spring morning. I would definitely stay here again!

What an awesome inn in a beautiful town. The innkeepers and staff were very gracious from providing us beach towels to recommending an excellent restaurant on the waterfront. The breakfasts each morning were incredible to start our day off on the right note. On the last morning before we left, we finally had a visit from COCO, which was great... More

I booked a room at this B&B in April, 2015 for a stay during the busy season in mid-July, 2015 while I will be attending a wedding. Within 10 days of booking, my friends changed their minds and all decided to stay at the beach so I canceled this reservation and made one at the beach. Much to my dismay... More

The property is quite grand, especially the common areas. Good location can walk to restaurants and stores. Parking less than ideal as you get stacked in a small driveway and leave keys at desk. Not easy to get in and out. Enjoyed wine in the library. Our room needed a bit of attention. Two of the 3 overhead light bulbs... More

There's something about a mansion made out of stone that is mysterious and alluring. The Graystone is just that--with each room uniquely decorated our stay was everything I thought it would be. This B&B is well worth the price with its convenient location to the river walk, restaurants and shops. Have a cup of coffee in the luxurious library in... More

We stayed one night and had the de Rosset and St Thomas rooms. Both were elegantly furnished, in keeping with this truly spectacular house. The downstairs rooms are really impressive, though completely over the top.The stairs are enormous and the ballroom on the 3rd floor worth a peak. Most of the furniture, mirrors, paintings are reproductions and it kind of... More
