Stayed at the Griswold Inn over the Thanksgiving Holiday. My room was in the Hayden House next door to the main Inn. I specificially requested a quiet room as I was there for several nites. Wed and Thursday evenings were quiet and lovely; however; the showers from the various rooms in the house; sounded like a freight train as the water moved thru the pipes; and if you were trying to sleep in; FORGET IT. Friday after Thanksgiving... at 10: 30 at night; I had to request my room be changed because the band was EXCESSIVELY LOUD. In addition; an obnoxious couple were watching the one and only TV in the living room of this little separate house I was staying in (just below my room) and screaming at one another. The Inn did move me to a room across the street right above their store. It was much quieter; however; when I returned to my room after an early morning walk; the store below the room had opened and you could hear the workers climbing up and down the stairs as well as the music piping into the store. If you want peace and quiet; would suggest a work week stay; but definitely NOT over a weekend.
