Great building and better inn keeper! Rooms are great and fairly priced but CASH ONLY! there is so much to see here that you may want to stay an additional day to see the antiques in every single room. Be sure to ask the innkeeper questions as he in a great resource for this area. No breakfast included but still a good value!
Because of security issues experienced by Credit Card companies, the Inn no longer accepts Credit Cards - only cash. There are several ATM machines conveniently located nearby. The Inn also has stopped accepting advanced reservations - however last minute "Drop In's", or 'same day' calls made while on route to Eureka are accepted. Also the room with the ensuite Private Bathroom is no longer available. A Private Bathroom is still available, but it is not in the bedroom, but rather in the adjacent room. While they no longer serve breakfast, their $135 nightly room rate reflects these short-comings.
My wife and I stayed here in April, 2009. Lily welcomed us, took our payment, gave us a brief tour of the house/museum, explained she and Doug were going to a concert that evening, and left us in a most delightful setting. I felt as if I'd traveled back in time what with all the old furnishings and just so much to look at in every room, on the walls, the ceilings, the floors. Martina and I used the sauna, then we spent about the next three hours going from room to room, posing for pictures, and marveling that we were alone in this unique space. We had a wonderful time, and I sure hope to get back there some day.
We spend a night in the house on our way from north to south. The house is a landmark located at the crossing of 2 quiet streets. Plenty of room to park right in front of the main door. Lily gave us a tour of the house which set the clock many years back. It was like unveiling a secret. The house is completely decorated in victorian style and feels like if the people living there had just left leaving everything as it was. We where in the Governor room upstairs. The room has a private bath, somehow unremarkable toiletery, free electric outlets next to the bedside table and armchair to plug your devices. WIFI is available but slow. A little electric oil heater allow you to dial your comfort temperature in winter. There is no breakfast but Adel's in town provides a good one. Overall a very charming place which transports you in an other time …
