A really beautiful place inside and outside. They have a nice pond and water fall as you walk up and nice areas to relax on the wrap around porch. Also has a gazebo and small area of grass to sit on. We stayed in the Still Water Suite on the third floor. It was very nice with the slanted ceilings... More

My husband I had one lovely night at Whistling Swan. The room was comfortable, the hospitality was welcoming, and the breakfast was delicious and filling. Lovely porches for sitting. Beautiful gardens to enjoy.

Architecture and furnishings are Victorian and our room (with king bed) was comfortable and overlooked the side garden. Breakfast was ample and delicious, with several hot choices (try the... More

We loved the character of our attic room, updated with a gorgeous modern bathroom!

We rented out the Whistling Swan from 5/26-5/28/16 in preparation for our daughters wedding on 5/27/16. Both bride and grooms families stayed in the 9 rooms. Roz was wonderful and so organized.

Stayed in the Stillwater Inn room at this charming B&B. Our host Tom was both friendly & courteous, the room was comfortable, clean and relaxing. Enjoyed a very good dinner at the nearby Bell's Mansion (seriously, just walk there).

Upon arrival, the inn looks tired and unkept. No curb appeal here. I stayed in the Meadows room which was on the front of the hotel with surprisingly a lot of street noise, including a garbage truck at 6 am. The bed was comfortable but no desk suitable for working and no ironing board for pressing clothes for work. The... More
