Quiet, Respectful, and Quaint
Posted Aug 17, 2015
I am not sure if this is everyone's experience but when we arrived around 7pm the innkeeper wasn't there. I called her per a note on the door and she told me she was expecting me (due to a call I made earlier in the day about missing check-in time), that the key was hidden on the porch, and she told me where to find it. Thus we let ourselves into this newly remodeled, beautiful home built in early 1800 that had been renovated and found our way upstairs to our room per the innkeeper's voice. In the morning, we had breakfast at 8:30 and it was casually seating the other tenants with their plates of eggs and bacon and fruit and waffles. The innkeeper was fun and charming, and told us about the house and how it was made. We went back upstairs, packed, and left to again an empty house, leaving the key on the counter. I really appreciated this experience, as we were nervous about a B&B versus a traditional hotel, but I could easily equate this experience to checking in to an Inn in the olden days. There were about six rooms versus a hotel's hundreds, so it was a bit more personal, yes, but at the same time it was far more romantic and quaint and just a fun experience that broke from my normal experience at a hotel. Plus, the price was great. They also own Hall House or such in the area, and I would absolutely use this inn again.
