Welcome to the elegant Shafer Baillie Mansion. Close your eyes, reopen them and you are taken back in time to an Agatha Christie film set where Hercule Poirot is about to take tea and crumpets or Brenda's homemade fruit pudding for breakfast straight out of her grandma's rich "Southern" recipe book. Brenda is the innkeeper. So is Glen. They both know the area well and generously share their local knowledge with you. Both great people.
A wide wooden staircase leads up to rooms each with their own unique look and feel. And you are only one block away from 15th Avenue where there's a stack of gorgeous restaurants and bars (try the Hopvine for lovely beer and an amazing roast garlic soup). If you hate the hotel chains and want something just a little different, try the Shafer Baillie Mansion. You might never tear yourself away from their richly stocked library shelves or bowls of chocolates. Dieters, you are warned! Loved it.
