This inn is in a house that was previously owned by family of mine for many, many years. As a kid, I was in and out of this house as well as the other homes on the "estate." I was a little nervous about staying in it as a guest, and not as family, and also to see what had been done to it.
I couldn't have been more pleased. The restoration was lovingly done, and the house has never looked better. The atmosphere is elegant, but understated, just as an old Puritan house should be. :-) Simple decor allows the beauty of the floors and the building itself to shine forth. As I told the innkeepers, I was so happy to see that it didn't look like a Laura Ashley catalog had exploded therein.
The rooms are extremely comfortable. In fact, with the windows open, curled up in the cozy, cozy, plush bed, I almost didn't want to get up. I did, however, and enjoyed coffee and delicious homemade coffeecake on the back porch. Both nights, I enjoyed a hot bath in the clawfoot tub.
The innkeepers are warm and welcoming, and I had a delightful stay. Cousin Bert, I think, would be pleased.
