A charming property with magical gardens, excellent chef, good staff, great location and unique rooms with different features. I chose a private courtyard balcony, next winter will be a fireplace. The breakfasts are delicious and nutritiously balanced with fresh fruit. I have enjoyed many b&bs in New England and Europe. So far, this is a favorite in the jewell of... More

I booked for one night for my wife's birthday and our anniversary. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were presented with mini bottles of champagne and chocolates which was very sweet of the staff. We had a cozy little room which was perfect for our needs. The breakfast was excellent. The inn is across from the Art Museum... More

We had an overnight stay in the Cove Room. Decent size, light and airy. Some have commented on the small size of the shower but it is adequate and larger than most European-style showers so definitely not an issue. Breakfast is served at two specific times, 8 am or 9 am so reserve early if you have a particular preference.... More

Great location and fabulous breakfasts! Wine and cheese at 5 was nice touch. Avoid Kate Sessions room. Too small for two people! No place to put suitcases. Portable electric fireplace just took up space. Worthless. No television. Room was always too hot. Plumbing needs updating. In fact on our last night we could not get the water in tub to... More

I was so delighted when my husband surprised me with a birthday trip here in May. I had surprised him with the same destination about twenty years ago for his December birthday, although about all I could remember was they were decorating for Christmas. In all the intervening years we have surprised each other with a B&B destination of two... More

Thank you so much for the wonderful review and letting us know where we can improve even more. We will check all the pillows in the rooms and replace any not up to standards. It sounds to me that the two decorative pillow "shams", normally only for decoration, got put on the bed as pillows. We will check it our... More

If you are looking for a bed and breakfast where you will meet the innkeeper and have a warm, personal experience, you should avoid this establishment.

I appreciate your concerns and I do feel we would be amiss in not addressing them. The corporation has owned this one B&B, and no other properties, since the mid 1990's. The onsite parking is advertised as first come first served and unfortunately we cannot take reservations. There is off site parking available upon request at check in. Our front... More
