I am in my mid-50s now, a physician, and well travelled throughout our beautiful country. I have stayed at the best the best, the five-star Ritz Carlton's, the Fairmonts, from the Plaza and Waldorf-Astoria in Manhattan to the Pan Pacific in Vancouver and NOWHERE have I ever met a more gracious, accommodating, energetic, creative and charming hostess than Melrose's Marilyn....

Words fail to describe the ambiance & charm of the Melrose Inn with a hostess/owner (Marilyn) who exudes charm, friendliness, and a true joie d'vivre - most likely a close relative of the the Energizer Bunny but never seems hurried or frazzled - you couldn't ask for a better experience - check her website www.melroseinn.com to get a feel of...

A couple of weeks ago my wife and I spent a wonderful night at this unique B&B. Marilyn is a consummate hostess. At check-in, she gave us a historic tour of the inn describing each rooms' theme. Afterwards, we had wine on the front porch enjoying conversations with other guests and various staff members. And, the meals... Dinner was a...

This B&B is not for everyone. Saying that, I will never forget my stay at Marilyn's Melrose Inn and all for great reasons. Marilyn was warm and welcoming. The house is one of a kind with interesting nick-nacks. I was in town for a dog agility competition and both the dog and I were warmly welcomed when we arrived. My...

This was by far one of the best Inns for people and their dogs, or pets I imagine. We have to german shepherds, they were welcome and even got to sit by the breakfast table, as long as they were well behaved. The first night there was a small dog in another room that barked occasionally, which started ours going,...

Marilyn is one of the most delightful hostesses I've ever encountered. She bends over backwards to ensure the comfort of her guests. She is also an amazing cook and I was very well fed with very healthy and amazingly delicious dinner and breakfast. The history of the structure is fascinating and Marilyn's obvious delight in it is wonderful. I wouldn't...

From the moment of arrival to that of departure, Marilyn is the consummate hostess and innkeeper. And her culinary skills are outstanding. Rarely have I encountered such a perfect combination. The accomodations are very clean, comfortable and varied to your needs and tastes. You will want to return for sure. Thank you Marilyn!

We recently visited Marilyn and her "Old Dame", as she likes to call it. The Melrose Inn was decorated with a lot of various knick knacks, themed rooms, and provides each guest with an immediate sense of coziness. The Inn is much larger than what we ever expected. Each hall packs a new surprise. Our company chose to have our...
