We have stayed at the Inn several times, usually at the holidays. It is quiet, cozy, and the decorations are truly lovely. Breakfast is served in the dining room and is abundant and delicious. WIFI is a bit slow but access was solid. We stayed in the Alloway Suite and ate dinner there one night with family. It worked out... More

Thanks for staying with us and your kind comments. And I'm glad the dinner worked out. In the future, please check with the innkeeper - some guests have been able to use our main kitchen's oven when we are not preparing for another group. Have a great holiday and we hope to see you back soon. John More

The first room was small and the bed was hard as a rock. The inn keeper is very nice and had put us in a different room for our next two nights. We had offered to pay for the up grade but because our whirlpool didn't work the first night they took care of us. The second / third night... More

Thanks for your review.
