Would have been 5 Stars but...
Overall the Inn and service were top-notch, with the only exception being the $30 charge for the Daybed linens. On the site, they only say there is a charge for a rollaway bed/cart, the daybed was the reason I book that specific room.

Amazing Architecture
Beautiful old building that has been modernized. I really enjoyed my stay. The architecture is amazing with 12 feet high ceilings in every room. Winding staircases, plenty of sitting rooms. We enjoyed exploring the place while having a nice glass of wine.

Argos Inn exceeded our expectation in all areas. This historic building was very tastefully renovated and decorated and the rooms and the common areas were simply beautiful and cozy. The outdoor area and the bar was multi level and settled in the woods. Service was perfect. We will only rebook this inn when we travel to Ithaca in the future.
