We spent one night in the Cortland Room, which was large and very clean. The bathroom is just outside in the hallway, and there are robes in the closet for your use. The bathroom is just for the Cortland room. If you are only staying one night, you might not have a choice of all the rooms because Jeannie gets last-minute bookings for two nights, but that's fine. There were chocolates and a full water pitcher with glasses in our room when we arrived. The room had good air conditioning, which was good, because it was pretty hot when we were there.
The house is really lovely -- there are well-furnished common areas on each floor with books and CDs, and there are chairs outside in the backyard for lovely evenings. The stairway has gorgeous huge windows that let a ton of light into the house. There is a pantry with snacks, sodas and water, and enough room in the mini-fridge for any leftovers. Breakfast was tasty and not too heavy -- we had a fruit cup with yogurt on the side, then egg frittata, sausage for meat-eaters, and little muffins.
Jeannie sent a list of restaurant recommendations, which was really helpful, and she made reservations for us. There is parking in the back, but street parking is also available. It's a close walk to downtown, but it's a nice distance away so that it's not too loud when the bars get out. We had a lovely stay here!
