We arrived tired and didn't care for soft drinks (in the fridge outside our bedroom door) and yet wanted more than the bottled water, so we requested hot herbal tea -- which came prepared on a lovely tea-service tray. The wireless service was very good in our room, and the morning neighborhood walk was most enjoyable, though there's a good bit of traffic on Philadelphia Avenue -- and if one is sensitive to traffic noises, she/he might want to request a room on the back of the house.
The ultra-soft towels, very comfortable mattress and super breakfast with Amish friendship bread make this a place to which we're returned!
