The Gaslight In is an attractive house with a pretty yard and gardens. It was clean and well-run in many ways, but we wouldn't recommend it. Co-owner Becky seemed so much more interested in making money than in hospitality that it ruined the experience. Her unfriendliness and inflexibility were surprising in such a nice place. Everything seemed geared toward pinching pennies, making it easy on the owners and protecting the property from untrustworthy guests. For example, they have hairdryers, but they're not in the room (who wants to get dressed and go down 2 flights of stairs with wet hair to see if they have one?) 2 of the 3 of us got sick after eating what we could of the breakfast. No choices for breakfast, although several at our seating (be there at 8:30 SHARP or else....) clearly didn't care for poached eggs. Parking is inadequate. Cookies were stale. Co-owner Mike was very friendly, but that couldn't compensate for the overall disappointing experience. Not what we expected for a property in this $ category.
