If you like antique, potpourri, porcelain dolls and pink towels, you will adore this place.
If you prefer something contemporary, or your travel style is a busy downtown Marriott, I would still recommend you to stay here, and not only because this is the only decent place to stay in the area. You may find the change quite relaxing.
Actually, it won’t be quite fair to compare this house to the standard hotel room. It feels more like a visit to your aunt’s house. You do not want to misbehave, in return you will be treated with great care.
This house was built in mid-18th century, and still features it’s original thick wooden front door. If you relax for a moment, you may feel the spirit of an old era.
I would assume it’s not an easy task, but the owner manages to keep this little museum clean and well maintained; it’s smelled clean, too, without industrial cleaners odor, common present at the hotels . Despite the old age of the house, our bathroom was sparkling and everything was functioning perfectly.
We were not there for a romantic gateway, but I could feel our hostess’s caring hand, that made my trip more pleasant. I guess Phyl noticed that I was shivering, because I found an extra comforter gently placed on our bed in the evening. And again, the blanket was not hotel standard, rather more cozy looking, white, sparkly clean and without industrial chemical smell.
In the morning we were treated with freshly made, a Cooked-to-Order Breakfast; our table was served in old Victorian style. I don’t even like breakfast, and my thoughts were not set up on food, but dear Phyl just made choice for me, and cooked some delicious pancakes with fresh blueberries. Just like a caring aunty would do! Sneaking in her kitchen, I also noticed that little balls for our fruit salad were freshly cut-off from a new cantaloupe. Hotel fruit salad usually comes from the bags and /or sprayed with chemicals for freshness.
If you are looking for relaxing time off, or just need to spent a night at the safe place, this is a place for you.
People from the area are lucky to have this venue available for tea parties.
