This is a beautiful property and the staff is very friendly and welcoming. My only issue is that it is not ADA friendly. If you or someone in your party has any handicaps, be sure to ask for a 1st floor room.

The property is very cozy inside and out. I like the cottages and the plentiful seating around the property. The front porch is wonderful and the breakfast foods are vast. The worker was attentive to replacing items when needed in the breakfast area. This property is also close to State Street and shopping and restaurants. We walked everywhere.

We loved this charming hotel and will definitely stay there again. The grounds were beautiful and every staff person was so kind and welcoming. I felt each of them were welcoming us in to their home. It had a small town vibe. The rooms were large and had extra room outside the bathroom to get ready. The bed was super comfortable too! Highly recommend!
