The hotel room was typical for an old country inn - except Flo the ghost didn't show up on our visit but the staff made the visit most enjoyable. Our bartender/front desk receptionist welcomed us warmly and the chef who we ran into was extremely enthusiastic about her kitchen and the hotel. Off season at $145 seemed high but there you go, we didn't want to drive any further. All the rooms have access to a wonderful balcony overlooking the Main Street. We stayed in #1 which had a wonderful but probably politically incorrect antique shower head that almost drowned you in its downpour. We didn't stay for dinner but understand from several locals we ran into that The National offers the best kitchen in town.
