After a couple of less than satisfactory stays in B&B's we were a bit reluctant to try another but our 4 night stay at the Old Consulate restored our faith. Nathan and Cindy could not have been nicer or more helpful and were just wonderful hosts. The accommodations were terrific, the antique furniture was in keeping with the age of the house and added to its unique charm.
The inn is in a great location. It is very convenient to downtown a quick ride or a nice walk while enjoying the view and the deer. It is also close to other attractions in the area.
The breakfasts were creative, hot, homemade, and got everyday off to a good start.
We would recommend the Old Consulate Inn without reservation!
