This is a very special historical property. With only 30 unique rooms, a large pool surrounded by extensive lawns, and abundant shade, this is a sweet and relaxing spot like none other. The staff is very friendly and the place hosts many regulars who visit often. Unfortunately it is a tad shabby. The outdoor furniture is mostly resin chairs, tables, and lounge chairs, all of which have seen better days. One guest fell while we were there when the resin chair disintegrated while he was sitting in it. The ancient yellow chaise cushions are in various stages of decay. The food is well prepared but the breakfast and lunch menus are very dated. Room and poolside service is friendly but the shabby "uniforms" worn by the hard working team don't convey a sense of luxury. The restaurant is a throw-back to the 1970's - dated menu, overly formal and stuffy. The rooms are charming but the touches of tacky (cheap reproduction prints, home-depot type remodeled bathrooms, cheap fake flowers in baskets) detract from the overall effect. Bedding and pillows are definitely bargain brand. The maintenance is very low budget, dead and dying flowers everywhere. This one of a kind inn has the potential to be great and it is a shame that the owners don't do more to bring the decor, amenities, menu, and overall appearance up to par with 2012 expectations. Having said all this, it is a fabulous, relaxing, charming spot just a brief stroll to the heart of the Village. We will be back.
