The Location of the Inn is perfect. It was walking distance to the Center of the Town. The room was very cozy and bed comfortable. We really appreciated the cleanliness of the room. I would say it was spotless.

Such a cute place! The staff was super friendly and helpful! The room was very spacious, bed super comfortable and everything was clean. The electric fireplace was a really nice touch and we appreciated the double sink in the bathroom. This sounds silly but honestly one of my favorite parts was the shoe mat in the corner by the door because after coming in from the snow and salty on the ground in the winter it was nice to not ruin the entire carpet so that little touch was immensly important and appreciated. 10/10 would love to come back and stay longer and return in warmer weather as well! I would highly recommend for anyone to stay here!
