This was our second stop on our honeymoon trip, and what a wonderful surprise it was. A beautiful restored house, 110 years old or so, and we were warmly welcomed by the owner Deborah who clearly takes great pride in the hotel. The interior furniture and finishes are beautifully grand and the ambiance is very relaxed. Deborah provided us with...
