    About 1.5 miles. Most folks take a taxi to the Inn because of their luggage. We are only 3 blocks from downtown, so walking around is easy.

    We do have rooms with 2 beds, but those rooms are already booked for Sept. 13. We also have a 2 bedroom cottage that would work. Please check our web site or call the Inn for pricing and further information.
