I recently stayed at the Stafford House to simply get away from my day-to-day stresses. I live locally so I was very familiar with the area and was more focused on my stay at the inn. As soon as I arrived I was properly greeting by Donna the innkeeper who was very warm and friendly. She accommodated my schedule and allowed me to check in earlier than originally planned. I was able to leave my car, bring my things in to my room (Queen room) while she gave me instructions for my stay.
Things to know:
Queen room is on the first floor and is extremely private. There is some street noise but not too loud. If you are sensitive use a sound machine or wear ear plugs. The room is quite large with a wood burning fire place, a sitting area, TV with basic cable, a mini fridge, an antique armoire for your clothing (there are no dressers), a queen bed with a pillow top mattress with four pillows. The bathroom is quite large with a walk in two person shower with body jets, and a built in seat, and a claw foot tub. There is no real door on the bathroom just a curtain so if you are traveling with someone hopefully you are not shy. This was not an issue as I traveled alone.
Breakfasts are delivered to your room at the time you desire. I am a late sleeper so my breakfast was delivered at 10:30 am and it was amazing. I frequent B&B's and I usually have to wake up earlier than I want. Her breakfasts are delicious and filling and she arrived right on the dot of the time you request.
There are no common areas so you are pretty much left alone which for me was great this trip. Although when I travel with my fiance I love common areas and meeting the other guests.
There is no thermostat in the room so it got a little hot during the day. If you are sensitive to temperature bring or ask for a fan. She provided a small fan to use in the bathroom as there was no ventilation.
2 water bottles, coffee maker with the fixings, bottle opener, and wine glasses are provided during your stay.
She also gave me a great deal since I was traveling alone and midweek. All in all I enjoyed my stay it was very relaxing, and private. Donna was friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were yummy and filling.
