the beginning of a birthday week :-)
we ate dinner (excellent!) in the library (fireplace, cozy), danced in the lounge to Shiny Lapel Trio (wicked fun band! that we follow), stayed over night, (comfortable bed and very cute view overlooking main street).

Never again - this Inn needs someone who cares !
Very disappointing. Entire staff seems indifferent as to service and the people at the front desk seem like this is a interim position; they are more interested in restaurant patrons than hotel guests. We are in our seventies, despite having rooms, they put us on the third story, no elevator. No compassion or interest in our situation. The room had one chair, no place to set luggage. The bathroom was the size of our shower at home, no place to put sundry items. No TV. The creaky floors and two inch crack in the door didn't bother us. I would guess that the owners are putting no money in this investment and the staff is totally demoralized.
