    A beautiful old Inn, rich in history. Centrally located, and very close to the core of city. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Would highly recommend to those looking for a place with more charm and uniqueness than a hotel chain.

    The service is what stands out the most at this Inn. Welcome, check-in, restaurant, lounge, housekeeping....we can't say enough about their gracious welcome and care throughout our stay. The accommodations were wonderful also, but the people make the property.

    They told us it would be open around July 1, so recommend you reach out to them. They were in full construction mode when we were there.
