I need to preface this review by saying the owner has some serious health problems which may have affected the quality of the inn. The house itself is amazing, a rabbit warren of rooms entering into rooms, staircases everywhere and original architectural details that are incredible! We stayed in the Lilac room (so named because of the bathroom). The room was huge, as was the bathroom. There is a separate room for the shower. Although the bed was king size, it wasn't the most comfortable. The mattress was thin, so the fitted sheet wouldn't stay put. I found myself tangled a few times. My husband and I live in an old house that we restored, so we are used to steep staircases, and believe me, these staircases are steep! Not recommended for the elderly. Although Ken (who is very friendly and personable) was there to greet us, he could not be there to greet the other guests who arrived much later. This resulted in them looking for their rooms, trying to get through our doors, and generally making noise late at night. (I hope it was the late arriving guests. Afterall, it is an old house!). The breakfast was excellent!
