- This place was like staying at a friend's home. The staff was welcoming, the rooms were decorated with period furniture, the breakfast room was a place to join others and find out where to go and what to do, the parlor was a nice break room and the overall stay was pleasant with the inn being close to the historic district. – Urbannagirl
