My husband and I arrived on a Thursday and checked out on Sunday. Thursday night was quiet at the Inn. We stayed toward the center of the Inn (Room 209) and we did hear the train come through town twice during the night, which didn't bother us. One night, Saturday I think, we saw the train come through town and there were 98 cars! We ate at the restaurant twice and the food was good both times. The Inn's WiFi worked very well and it was nice not to have a phone or TV in the room. On Friday some loud guests came and we could hear their conversation in the room next to us and in the hallway, but we just turned on the bathroom fan. Two requests - have a hang tag the guests can place on their door if they don't want housekeeping (we didn't need or want towel or cleaning service, but we had to locate the cleaning staff each morning to let them know) and our room was so cold we jumped into bed (really nice feather comforters) as soon as we would get into the room and we didn't want to get out of bed in the morning...good thing the Inn had nice warm water for showers. Also, a community coffee pot was on each morning and tea bags were available, but there was no hot water to make tea. Maybe the restaurant could send up a pitcher of tea in the morning? The Inn has a good feel to it and it's very open to come and go as you wish. I would suggest this Inn to family members and friends and I would stay here again.
