The 1861 Inn is a lovely B&B with great hosts and good food. The hosts set up a bike itinerary for us of about 18 miles with some good hills through slightly rolling countryside, once we climbed the 400 feet or so out of the river valley where the Inn resides. Nice porches, super quiet 18 inch brick walls and comfy beds made for a great sleep. We had dinner there with another couple we did not know beforehand and Tom/Carol the hosts. Very nice 5 course dinner with wine included for $35 each, autumn themed with local produce. Breakfast, the underlying mainstay of a great B&B did not disappoint with baked fruit, fresh muffins, waffles with cinammon butter, sauteed apples and maple syrup, juice and coffee. We spent an hour at breakfast (and three at dinner, which was followed by an outside fire with the six of us). Good signs of both the food and the company. We live 20 minutes away but I would drive hours to go here. Strongly recommend.
