Loved our stay! We stayed in the Olds Suite. The king bed was super comfortable. Our sitting room was a nice extra - air conditioners worked great - the bedroom and sitting room had their own. Staff was super friendly. Everything was very clean. Location was very convenient. The breakfast choices were great and everything was prepared to perfection.

Loved our stay. We had a king suite on the second floor. Clean! Comfortable! Beautiful interior! Great breakfast by Lisa! Amazing price! The owner called us to be sure we arrived and found everything in order. The bed was very comfortable and that is a big part of how we rate our stay.

The Old Library Inn comes. Private bedrooms, air conditioning, and cable, in the most lovely building, built in 1895. Lois, the Inn manager, was extremely accommodating and personable. We loved the made to order breakfast and the excellent service and care we received.

This is the third time I've stayed at the Old Library Bed and Breakfast and it was terrific, as always. I'll gladly continue to stay here when visiting the area. The atmosphere on the first floor is welcoming and the room I stayed in on the second floor was excellent. Although I was here on a personal visit this time,... More

The house is amazing, old world craftsmanship, the room was better than any local hotel you could find and breakfast the next morning was outstanding. It will always be my first choice when traveling in that area. I... More
