We certainly hope that you will come back!! I'm so glad that you loved the details that others call clutter or trinkets and am happy that you spent time wandering inside and out. I guess you could tell that my gardens are a real love.

A lovely and restful stay in a most authentic Inn from 1714. Gentle warm innkeepers and hospitable staff made my experience welcoming. Cozy fireplaces, nooks and crannies filled with artwork, sculpture and an ambience like waking up in a scene from "Rip Van Winkle". Wonderful!
