About
Description
The historic Avery on Prospect Hill Guest House Bed and Breakfast, built in 1848, provides a tranquil and warm setting for your overnight or weekend stay. It is your home away from home. Enjoy a cup of coffee or tea More by sitting and relaxing on the large front porch or in the gazebo. Our spacious inn is decorated with a mixture of new and old. Each guest room has a private bath with a King or Queen size bed and all the amenities. Great News! We have added 2 new guest suites on the main level...thus avoiding stairs. Both rooms have private baths but one room has twin beds (for those that need a separate bed) and the other room has a king size bed. A hearty breakfast, access to Candy's Candy Bar and coffee/tea are available daily. We are in walking distance to downtown so you can park your car and enjoy the comfortable block stroll to Main Street shopping, wonderful restaurants and interesting sites. Come enjoy yourself at the Avery, "your home away from home". Less
