A lot of character
I needed a convenient and affordable place to stay for one night and I wasn't disappointed. The hotel has a lot of character.

Old world charm and practical elegance.
I had eaten dinner at the hotel before but never stayed. Just stayed in a single room and it was lovely, old-world, solid quality and style. I felt like I was in a private club, or a family home. Very quiet even though I think mostly full, perfect location, lovely reception (Mary?) and, of course, the food and bar are understatedly excellent. I will be back. ❤️ Thank You!

This was a short stay by a frequent guest. As always The Homestead was welcoming and offered a much needed respite at the end of the day. The staff was friendly and helpful, as usual.

Nice place to stay--not so much to sleep.
Quaint older hotel. Nicely maintained. Window a/c REALLY noisy, but effective. Food in restaurant was interesting and excellent. Breakfast (admittedly billed as "continental") was mostly carbs, but they did have cheese and hard-boiled eggs available for protein fanciers. The bed was a meticulously restored medieval torture device. Okay, I'm used to a memory foam bed, but this monstrosity was about a 9 on the Mohs hardness scale. It also had the sort of leaning-to-the-middle that makes for a close night with your bed-partner. Still, though, a decent place to stay (with few close alternatives), and a good value.
