"No real advice. The web site shows the rooms and can help personalize the choice - and the owners are always willing to work with you."
"Garden room was nice"
"Highly recommend 'The Tower' room"
"I’ve stayed here several times, with a different room each time. They have all been charming and comfortable."
"Noise-wise, none of the rooms are too bad. The main street out front with the trolley line is the loudest and it was very pleasant."
