Really charming, gently elegant small boutique hotel with lovely very large rooms....everything you possibly need and more. Beautifully run by Conrad. In the perfect location on the Main Street where all the shops and restaurants are. Our second trip back and I think it's even better!

Stayed three nights at The Last Word. The place is lovely, good size rooms, lovely amenities in the bathroom, plenty of towels. Turn down service with a little something left for you to eat which is a nice touch. The hotel is very peaceful and you will get a good nights sleep. Beds are comfy as are the pillows. Breakfast...

Conrad met us on our arrival which was late in the evening. His kindness and service are outstanding and his restaurant recommendations were great. Our room was large and very comfortable. Breakfast was executed nicely. This is a wonderful property and we wished we could have stayed longer.

From the moment you arrive at The Last Word, you feel like you're coming home. The greeting is personal and warm and the hosts encourage you to "join the family" of guests.

When we arrived, we were somewhat skeptical of what we would find beyond the gate and if this place would live up to the online photos, but it went above and beyond our expectations.
