My husband and I recently stayed in the Isabella suite for four nights and loved it! The room was clean, quiet and spacious. The breakfasts were wonderful. As vegetarians we had plenty to eat. The Inn is a short walk to many sites and restaurants. We will definitely stay there again!

The inn keeper Bonnie 's concern for guests was exceptional.She arranged for my transportation to the train and when I returned from my trip dressed the bruise on my head from striking the low baggage overhead on Amtrak.With her past experience in a doctors office.Caring people make a great difference when dealing with the public.

his review is for the 1890 Caroline House which is an extension of the RJ Inn, just up the street. The ambiance in this B&B is quite exceptional. The owners have done a marvelous job in restoring the inn to it's 19th century grandeur. They have made an addition, the William Riley room, which is a bit more modern than...

We stayed at the newly renovated 1820 Caroline Inn, adjunct of The Richard Johnston Inn, in the center of the historic district. Both inns are exquisite representatives of this beautiful town.

I flew my plane into Shannon Field to connect with the commuter rail line. Bonnie from the Inn picked me up at the airport. My first trip to this B&B and found it superb. Nice continental breakfast, clean room and bathroom. Decor is fine antique. Service superb. Would recommend to family, friends and business associates.

We went July 8-10, 2011 for our anniversary. We had an absolutely wonderful time. The rooms are comfortable. Bonnie, the Innkeeper, and her assistant Lindy are great. The two other staff I had interactions with were extremely pleasant and efficient. Breakfast was outstanding! I plan on going again and again to this wonderful B&B. You simply do not get better...

We had a wonderful weekend at the inn. Bonnie could not be more accomodating! When we arrived in the pouring down rain and were drenched she suggested a shot of brandy and robes ( both are included in your room). The dogs greet you and are a wonderful addition. Feels like home. Can't wait to go back!
