My husband and I recently stayed at the Jasmine House Inn for a quick getaway. We live locally and were pleasantly surprised to find the inn off the beaten path and yet close to many great restaurants and sights. Check-in and parking are both located at the Indigo Inn, which is literally across the street. All guests of the Jasmine House are given a key to the front door, as well as their room. I loved this about the inn - guests can come and go as they please and yet still feel safe and secure. It's much like staying in a hotel, but with the comforts and quaintness of a B&B. If you aren't one to want to chat with innkeepers, this is the place for you.
We stayed in the Bancroft room, which is on the first floor and, to our delight, had a fireplace. We absolutely loved this room. Unfortunately, the downside to the two front rooms is that if other guests return late in the evening, you will hear everything...the front door, talking, stomping up the stairs. You'd hope other guests would be considerate and try to be quiet, but you aren't guaranteed. On our next stay (because we will be back!), we would probably consider a second floor room to afford us more quiet.
The inn does offer afternoon wine and cheese in the front hallway. We made some small plates and had a glass of wine by the fireplace in our room. I'd imagine that on warmer days, sitting on one of the porches or in the beautiful courtyard would be wonderful. Breakfast is served in a similar manner. Guests are welcome to grab juice, coffee and food as they please. The food is nothing gourmet or fancy, but enough to get you going in the morning.
We would not hesitate to recommend this inn to local or out of town friends. I hope that we can go back soon!
