We arrived early on a Friday afternoon and called. Lindi walked down to let us in and show us around the property. She informed us at that time we would not be served breakfast at the Caroline house since she was taking a needed day off. She said we could walk down to the other inn (Richard Johnston Inn). At the time we were a little disappointed however it turned out fine. The weekend stay was not without a few hitches. On Saturday morning on the second shower we were taking, the faucet handle came off and we were unable to turn the water off. When we walked down to the Johnston Inn we were met by Bonnie....that is when our stay turn from okay to WONDERFUL. We told Bonnie about the shower and she immediately "I'm switching you to another room!" we were accommodated almost instantly. She was so concerned she went down to the Caroline house just after serving us our breakfast and switched us over to the adjacent bedroom.
Breakfast was great and filling. They will work with any food restrictions. We went away full and didn't eat again until dinner time.
Both rooms were spotless and well equipped with comforts. We enjoyed a wine and cheese tray the first night in the room and I highly recommend this extra. The Luke Henry Room is a little smaller than the Sawyer Scott however it is on the back side of the property which makes it a little bit more quite. The Sawyer Scott faces Caroline street and there is both foot and vehicular traffic noise through the night. Some woke us but despite this we both slept well and awoke rested.
I would recommended this Inn and the Richard Johnston Inn for anyone wanting warm hospitality from Bonnie. We hope to be back in the near future
