Formerly a set of residences set on 4.5 acres of beautiful gardens, every room at the English Inn is unique. Each offers its own special character amidst the beautiful garden setting and historical architecture of the property. Three types of standard rooms are available from the quaint garden rooms to the deluxe crown suites as well as "The Crown Jewel" the luxurious heart of the English Inn and the 2 bedroom townhouse, great for large families or parties traveling together.

Is the restaurant open?
Thank you for thinking of the English Inn. At this time, we are a catered venue only for our events. However, this is a consideration of the owner who has recently purchased and also has some wonderful plans for the future of our property. Presently, we serve a lovely continental breakfast for our overnight guests.
