          A delightfully restored (maintaining the character) 19th Century hotel furnished with authentic antiques. The rooms were very comfortable, the staff cheerful and accommodating, and the location exhilarating.

          The lobby is a treasure trove of the towns history and history makers. It is located within easy walking to restaurants, the carriage ride, and many shops. The staff is welcoming and will make you feel right at home. I recommend the breakfast! Delicious.

          We were built in the 1850's. We do not have an elevator. We have four rooms on the first floor, but they are not considered handicap accessible.
