This tavern has had only 5 owners in 133 years, and fewer coats of paint. Plainly, it is a tired Inn. No A/C. Owners pets run the house and are in the kitchen. Though it is hard to get to (GPS does NOT work), and it is remote, there is one catch. Once you arrive you realize that you are less than 200 yards from an interstate highway. Road noise lasts all night long. Rooms were clean, nicely furnished and the bed comfortable. Shared bathroom was moderately clean. linens were exceptional quality. No WiFi or internet, but most don't go there for that for sure. Gardens were a delight as was the Innkeeper. Carolyn make, without question, the finest blueberry pancakes known to man. We may return simply for those.
