“Gracious living - a real gem”
Reviewed August 6, 2007

Staying here is like staying in a private house. But this is no ordinary private house. Furniture, furnishings, paintings, tableware, etc are all in keeping with the style and date of the house, so guests can really enjoy a bit of New England gracious living, with wireless internet access thrown in! Along with the excellent home-cooked breakfast and attentive service from the staff, everything made for a very enjoyable and memorable stay. Four of us (two adults and two children) stayed in the best room in the house, but at $200 by British standards we still thought this was excellent value.
