We indeed have the fortunate combination of being "in town" while at the same time having the tranquility you speak of, being just far enough out of all the bustle. So glad you were able to relax during your stay with us. More

This hotel/inn/B&B is unlike any other place I have stayed. It’s a big house with actual metal room keys—not key cards. There are common areas like the living room and the patio. The living room has an old turn table and vinyl albums of classic music like the Beatles and Frank Sinatra. Off the living room is a library with... More

A relative booked us at the Lindsey because they knew we liked B&B's. Our room was fresh and clean. However we didn't have a closet or bureau with any drawers!

Very friendly and helpful staff. Super clean. Décor is trendier than many B&Bs. Most comfortable sheets I have ever slept in! (and they looked up the brand for me).
