Large spaces, high ceilings, an impressive number of antiques, and period inspired wallpaper, velvet drapes and artwork will transport you to a luxurious period of fine living. The atmosphere extends into the five guest rooms on the two upper floors also populated by beautiful antiques and where modifications to provide private bath accommodations have been minimal.
Accommodations are clean, quiet and comfortable. Mary Williams , the owner and your hostess will make you feel right at home with her warmth.
