I cannot say enough good things about my stay. I decided to stay in the Ipswich area the night before the Stone Cat Trail Marathon since it had a 6:15am start. I chose the Inn based on the reviews here at Trip Advisor. It did not disappoint. As I was traveling alone, I chose to stay in the Skylight Room. I believe the bed was a double and not a queen, but it suited my needs just fine. The room was extremely clean, and though a few times throughout the night I heard some guests shutting doors, it was overall very quiet.
The real gem of the Inn is its Innkeeper. Ray was such an accommodating host. There were two of us staying at the Inn to run the early-morning trail race, and Ray got up at 4am to ensure we had coffee and something to eat (bagels and muffins) before we had to head out at 5am.
I will definitely stay at the Inn again when I run the race next year!
