My parents, my sister and her husband, and my boyfriend and I stayed here the night before my nieces graduation from Truman State. All the hotels near Kirksville were booked. We had two rooms on the lowel level and one on the main level. Our room opened to a small patio area and had a large tv and sofa. The 3 rooms on the main floor are more like original schoolrooms but the attention to details makes the entire place interesting and cozy. It was nice waking up to the smell of breakfast cooking. Nancy asked us what time we wanted breakfast and if we had any special requests. Biscuits, gravy, bacon, eggs, potatoes, rolls, and fresh fruit were a delicious way to start the day. Luckily, we had some time to check out the restored post office and small local store. Very relaxing and laid back start to a special day. Macon is only a 25 minute drive and we had dinner at AJ's there because we were meeting my niece. I wish we could have had dinner at the restaurant in Ethel that is open on Friday and Saturday night. I am so glad this piece of history in Ethel was saved and is being well preserved while a lot of people get to enjoy it. Nancy and her husband were hospitable but also let us feel like we had the run of the place. This would be a great place for an extended family to get together to catch up or enjoy the holidays. The price is very reasonable for the quality of accommodation and the food.
