We stayed here after a concert at the Comcast center when we didn't want a long, late night drive home. (It is only 10 minutes from the venue.) We stayed in the "peach room", which had a king sized 4 poster bed. The furnishings were beautiful antiques, and the new bathroom was tastefully decorated to fit in. We got a tour from the owner, who described the history of how the home was a stop on the underground railroad and many other interesting facts. It was the kind of tour we have paid serious money for in places like Newport, Rhode Island. The breakfast was wonderful: fresh squeezed orange juice, fresh fruit compote, homemade banana bread, and thin pancakes topped with more fresh local fruit. The staff were delightful and accommodating. I would recommend this place to anyone who enjoys a real bed and breakfast experience instead of a chain hotel when selecting a place to stay.
