My husband and I stayed here for one night over 4th July weekend. They were kind enough to accommodate a one night stay, even though there was a minimum stay for holiday weekends(always worth calling even if the website says no!) We paid alot for the room as a result but it is well situated right in town, has lovely... More

Staff was very nice and the rooms Here well maintained. I will stay here agian. The Inn is close to many places, so you don't need a car to explore the town. Which is better because parking is limited in town.

It was one of the best bonding moment with my family that I could ever imagine. My granddaughter had a ball! If you ever need the perfect family suite,... More
