Everything about this place feels just right. The small cottages made us feel like we were staying at Grandma's house. The small treats given each day were a perfect touch. And the location is just a few blocks from State Street. Unbeatable! Check it out!

We were fortunate to stay in the "Penthouse Suite" at the Country House. The accommodations were very nice as well as spacious. The access does include a couple of steep staircases. The fresh cooked breakfast were delicious! I would recommend this spot.

Staff at the front desk are extremely helpful. We arrived by car but walked everywhere once we got to the Upham. Maps, public transport info etc all available from staff.

I do not know although my guess is that they do not allow pets. Best to call the hotel itself.
