My boyfriend and I spent one night at the Old Consulate Inn and we were very impressed with our experience. Cindy and Nathan had just taken ownership yet they seemed like old hands at their responsibilities. The Inn is exquisitely decorated with pleasing antiques. The public areas are arranged for socializing or reading books from their library. In addition, there is a pool table in the basement for guests' use. Our room was comfortable and well-decorated. The nearby bells do ring every hour. They will bother some but not others. The bed in our room, the Renaissance, was a bit too soft for my liking but everything else was top-notch. And that includes the lovely breakfasts - plentiful, tasty and varied. Kudos to Cindy and Nathan for continuing a well-deserved reputation.
