Inside was absolutely stunning. Loved each and every room. Breakfast was wonderful. The outside needs lots of work, but I know they are updating that

The inside is absolutely beautiful and highly recommend it. Nothing beats the breakfast they serve. Everything is freshly homemade and at night you can smell wonderful scents of bake goods that you can look forward to in the morning. Upon arrival though we thought we were at the wrong place. It is under renovations and we were a little startled, but once you enter the front door you forget all about it.

Stayed for 2 nights, absolutely loved the historical value and actual history behind the place. The location is centrally located to anything you'd need or want, and the food was outstanding, not to mention the owners are some of the friendliest folk I could have hoped for. 100% recommended this place.
