We almost didn't book here because of some of the other not so favorable reviews, but I'm so glad we decided to give it a try.
First off, our room was fantastic. Fabulous furniture, comfortable bed, vaulted ceilings, claw foot tub. It was well appointed, clean, and did not disappoint. The decor at the Inn and restaurant was so charming and beautiful that I'll be copying a few things at home.
Mark and the bartender were extremely friendly and accommodating, dinner was delicious, service impeccable and the atmosphere was inviting and cozy (Spoof the adorable house pup was definitely a perk). It was a perfect stopover on our trip, and definitely the most affordable part!!
Some of the negative reviews may be from locals looking for something comparable to other local pubs, which didn't feel as refined or high end in my opinion. As for the rooms being dingy or unkept, I was worried but did not find that in any form. Everything was crisp and clean and spotless. Then again I'm not searching for imperfections, I'm looking for a wonderful experience, which is what I got here.
