While visiting this Inn, we were delighted to find that it exceeded our expectations. We were met with a bottle of wine in our room and a room that was very nicely appointed. There was plenty of room to be comfortable and most of all, it was immaculate. What impressed me the most is that there was no detail that...

Able to relax with a bath and wrap in a robe with slippers provided in the suite. They even put a candle and bath salts in the bathroom. There...

Thank you so much for such a nice review! I just wanted to say that our Brookside rooms all have real wood paneling, and often people mistake the smell for mustiness. It really is just a wood smell that some people love. "Brookside" is far from the brook and has no mold or mildew . It really is the MOST...

My nusband and I wanted to get away for a couple of days to celebrate our 25th anniversary. We could not have chosen a better place. The room (suite 205) in the Barnside was so beautiful and dare I say, romantic. The suite was very clean and inviting. The gas fireplace in the room added warmth to an already cozy...

We stayed two nights in one of the 1986 House Inn's Barnside suites and our time there was fabulous! The room was a perfect combination of roomy and cozy and the fireplace, dimmer switches on all lights, and two-person Jacuzzi tub made for a wonderful romantic weekend. It was very clean and well-kept and really felt like no expense was...

I arranged four suites for family members coming down to celebrate a big birthday for my father. Each room was amazing. We were in suites 201, 202, 205 and 206. I personally was in 201 which seemed to be the most expansive with a small kitchen area although 205 and 206 have higher ceilings. I felt it was luxurious and...
