“A very nice stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2009

We treated ourselves to a night at the Porch Swing Inn for our 19th wedding anniversary. Wish we'd stayed longer but money was tight. Was worth the splurge. We stayed in the Jesse James Hideaway. I guess we were anxious for our getaway because we arrived before the normal check in time. Fortunately our room was ready and we were given a tour and allowed to settle in. We loved our room. It was immaculate, the bed comfy, and it had a nice view of Park College. I appreciated the little extras like makeup remover, locally made soap, and bubble bath. The room also had a jacuzzi bathtub, probably not large enough for two but immaculately clean and worked great. The room had a guidebook for the town, and a listing of restaurants. After enjoying the room for a bit we drove down the street to dinner at Franks' place in town, a nice Italian restaurant that has amazing homemade sauce called, "Suco." We could have walked down to the main street from the Porch Swing Inn but it was a snowy day and cold! Which brings me to one of two negatives about the Inn. The parking is challenging. The driveway is very steep, and difficult to get out of. We ended up parking on the street when we returned from dinner, and one of the innkeepers shoveled the snow around the car to make it easier for us to get out the next morning. A very appreciated gesture! The other negative: the walls are very thin. Everyone staying was on a couples getaway...

Breakfast was wonderful: homemade biscuits and wonderful sausage gravy, a variety of juices, awesome coffee, and fresh fruit. We chatted comfortably with the other couples and innkeepers for a good hour and a half at the breakfast table. All in all a very nice stay! We'd love to go back.
