The Serendipity Inn is a great place to get away from it all. It's very quiet and not in the middle of all the big hotels yet close enough to everything you need or want. You do feel like you're getting away from it all.
If you're looking for the 1800's old home converted to a B & B, then this is not the place for you. This is a 1960's or '70's small motel that has been re-decorated to look more like B & B rooms. I'm not a fussy guest so it was fine for me. Phil, the owner, does everything possible to make your stay comfortable.
A couple of areas that you should be aware of if you are a more discerning traveler. 1) There was a musty odor in the room. This was taken care of by a scented candle I purchased so problem solved. 2) The individual a/c unit in the window is very noisey so if you have trouble getting to sleep, this could be a problem. 3) The door to the bathroom was rotted at the bottom and splintered. Again, not a problem but not very attractive, either. 4) My second night there, the maid service consisted of throwing the bedspread over the pillows (not tucked in and the rest of the pillows were left off) and the towels changed out. The empty TP roll was not replaced, however, there was another under the sink, so, again, no problem but not what you would expect. **I wondered if this had something to do with not leaving a tip in the "Housekeeping Envelope" left on the dresser my first night there.** 5) The walls are paper thin.
None of the things mentioned above would prevent me from returning to The Serendipity. I only mentioned them so that those planning on staying there are aware of what it's really like. Afterall, that's why we come to this website...to find out the little things that aren't mentioned in the brochures.
