We spent 4 nights here and took the time to experience the Inn in its entirety!
Now I imagine we are not the normal couple that would stay here, we are 30s and quite heavily tattooed (my other half more than I) so we definitely stood out but staff was always extremely pleasant!!
(I really liked Mike-so, thank you Mike)
This is an OLD house, you will hear creaks and doors and voices and possibly even the boiler and if you're lucky you may see the ghost of the colonial soldier who haunts the property.
We stayed on the ground level in the Eli Whitney Room...it has a private garden entrance, exposed brick walls and a claw foot tub! (As a side note the shower was always hot).
They serve breakfast in the mornings in the front parlor it was always delicious BUT...they had one breakfast each day and you also had to pick a time for breakfast the day before (9:30 is the latest-too early for me:) So unless you specifically ask for something other than the breakfast (the can do fried eggs and toast on request) you will get the special of the day. In the mornings there is always coffee and tea in the parlor (6-10am) In the afternoons there is lemonade, sweet tea and the treat of the day to indulge in. At 5:30pm (my favorite) it was wine time! There are 3 types of wines and some snacks. Go sit in the parlor all fancy like, sip some wine and enjoy! I did!
In the evening they serve port. All included as part of the experience!!!
I would definitely recommend a stay here for the experience of it all. This beautiful house is a stop for many tour groups for its historic value but fortunately it is NOT open to the public so you'll just have to stay here to get to enjoy it in all it's splendor!
