My wife surprised me for my birthday with a night getaway at this interesting and unique property. Built in 1899 by a local farmer-race horse breeder it has some really cool history and flavor.
Our innkeeper and attendant Patsy was extremely friendly, sharing stories about the property and providing us with 2 outstanding meals, dinner and breakfast! The chocolate bundt cake was outstanding!
We stayed in the medieval room on the 3rd floor and had plenty of space, a good bed, nice shower and a 2 person hot tub. Recently being remodeled the suite was clean, in good repair and almost completed.
Due to the Inns proximity to railroad tracks (and there was train traffic every hour all night long) bring your ear plugs! I do not believe that any amount of insulation would prevent hearing the train noises so close, so be prepared for a restless night. The walls have little insulation so noise from adjacent guests is quite loud, especially hot tub pumps and plumbing fixtures.
The property is in a state of semi-disrepair with many areas under construction. However, we had plenty of hot water, heat and A/C and no problems with any of the other amenities.
As a restful, quiet, B&B not so good, as a murder mystery destination probably a good choice especially if you book it with a number of friends.
