We just spent a night at the Ann Bean Mansion and it was wonderful! We stayed in Jacob's room... small, but cozy room with a wood burning fireplace. We definitely needed it, as it was very cold here this past weekend.
The mansion is beautiful with lots of antiques and special touches. The front room is very inviting- lots of comfy chairs to lounge in, plus a gorgeous piano. The dining room is set up for snacks and drinks any time you want them (hot chocolate, tea, coffee, fresh baked cookies, crackers, etc). Our room had a small refrigerator with some bottled water and some other drinks, which was very nice.
The bed was super comfy, with lots of great pillows and linens. Our room was set off a bit from the others, so it was very quiet. We liked the privacy and the ipod compatible cd player was nice to have.
There was a computer in the hallway for guests to use, as well as wifi throughout the house (we didn't use it, but very nice to have). We got to peek into a couple of the other rooms before people checked in... all of them were very nice!
For anyone wanting or expecting a powerful morning shower, keep in mind that it's an old house and the plumbing isn't updated. They still have the charming chain system in the shower.... lots of hot water, just not lots of pressure :)
We chose to have breakfast in our room, which was a nice way to ease into the day. Jeremy delivered it on a tray & it was delicious!!
We checked in and were given a key for the front door and our room, so we were free to come and go as we pleased. We did go out for dinner downtown, but were happy to get back and warm up in front of our fire.
The only thing that would have been nice to have is some little loveseat or couch to sit on while we enjoyed the fire.... otherwise the room was perfect.
I would definitely recommend a stay here to anyone who's looking for a quiet, romantic weekend away :)
Jacob's room is the smallest, but very cozy. No tv, if that's important to you. Great wood b...

Thank you for your kind review, and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us! We're always grateful when guests decide to go public with their accolades. Upon reading your comment about the shower, my husband ducked upstairs to see what might have been amiss--and sure enough, the modern shower head was the problem (ironically it was not the few pieces of remaining historic plumbing!). Our apologies, we fixed it right away. I guess those 'water conserving' fixtures sometimes conserve a little too much!
