For our anniversary, I surprised my wife with an overnight stay and dinner at the Inn. From the moment we walked in the door (and Flora took my wife's tote bag from her shoulder, and carried it around herself) to our effortless departure (no need to stop at the front desk to check out), every single detail was taken care...

It is said that not everything is said until everyone has said it! So many good things have been written about the Inn that it's hard to add but it's so good that I have to try.

We came to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary and were made to feel special from the moment we arrived. The refreshing drink when we arrived, the afternoon tea with pastry, then the extraordinary dinner. All were far above what one would receive in most high in restaurants. Our room in the inn was also special and well appointed. So many... More
