My husband and I spent 2 nights here in June. We arrived without a reservation (during the week) and were greeted at the front door by a very friendly, helpful, person. Fortunately for us, there were quite a few rooms available. She kindly took the time to show each room and give the price for us to better determine our choice.
The Inn is a wonderfully big house (although it has always been an Inn). The interior is one that you would except - grand staircase, dark wood paneling, etc. We decided upon a room on the 2nd floor (facing the street). It was a generous size room and though facing the street was quiet. The bathroom was just fine too.
The grounds are quiet ample and there is a small balcony off of the sunroom (where breakfast is served) to enjoy the view.
The only thing that was a bit strange was that they ask you to sign up for breakfast - not sure why - but the breakfast was good as well.
The Inn is within walking distance of downtown (about 15-20 mins.) and close driving distance to many things in the area.
All in all a very pleasant stay with very nice people.
