“Quaint, cozy, friendly and warm.”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Visited here with my husband for the weekend. Lovely innkeeper gave us great overview of this former Jesuit retreat. Room was comfortable and large bathroom, plenty of space. Grounds were lovely and a quick drive to eat at the Magnolia Inn and visit the Hot Springs Resort and Spa. Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: We stayed in Tranquility. Towards the back of the house on the first floor. Very quiet.
