Very clean, comfortable room. Lovely place. Quiet, beautifully decorated, walking distance to downtown in a lovely historic district. The key pad entry was easy and so convenient. They had our room ready early and texted us. Great communication. A real find!

Convenient location. Great ambiance. If you like staying in classic old time houses (but with all of the modern conveniences) this is the place.
