This is a beautiful property. Dining room and common lobby area immaculate and very authentic to the period it represents. Food was very good and plentiful. Staff was pleasant and helpful. We stayed in the stone cottage. Suite 1 is a fabulous space, roomy, with great potential. As I pointed out to staff, however, there is good "old" and bad "old". This suite was bad old. Definitely '80s decor and very grimy and outdated. The structure is great but needs a lot of TLC. Photos are deceiving. Had we known such, we would have chosen a room in the Inn itself. At least being old there is somewhat authentic and definitely more charming for the price. All in all we enjoyed our visit.
