This time around, we received a smaller room with a queen size bed. Decor - as in the other rooms, is good. The staff is friendly and helpful and the location right off the town center is great. Hotel provides a very causal light breakfast in the morning.

We are 20 year New Yorkers, decent southern food served family style was novel to my three kids, but it was delicious enough and fun...and not too expensive, kids are charged fairly! I would recommend and I would return.

Clean hotel, friendly front desk staff, room was comfortable. Had a limited continental breakfast. Ice machine is needed in the carriage house, but ice is available off the front desk. Two minute walk from the square with its shops and restaurants.

I had a friend in town who raved about the Smith House. We drove over an hour for the family style dining. We were a party of 6, so we were at our own table. The food was bland, some was cold. The shrimp was the best item. The servers were nice enough. Not worth the trip, wouldn't do it... More

We booked a weekend getaway and selected Smith House for a few reasons. One, according to Google Maps there was a pool...no pool and just a grassy area. Their website does not advertise a pool. Two, we wanted wifi to do a little surfing, but it only connects if you have the door open and you are standing in the... More
