Fabulous 8.8 From 350 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Great inn, need overflow parking
Great inn, very comfortable stay. Need to advise guests of where overflow parking is upon checkin. There were no available parking spots after we can back from dinner. We had to park up the hill around the corner in a residential neighborhood to park our car overnight.

We stayed right by the water wheel, I left the door open all night and slept like a baby! I loved it!

Very Good 8.0
beautiful place
My family and I loved the babbling brook and the sound of the water was soothing, it was clean, and the beds were comfortable. The only problem was the smell in the room and am not sure if it was the rug or the smell from the water outside.
