5/5 Excellent

The Grand Old Lady is a charming step back into a simpler time. We loved the atmosphere, the staff, the interaction with other guests at breakfast, and oh my, sitting in those wonderful rockers on the big porches. The Inn is.in a secluded area with no traffic ... So peaceful...and NO televisions. How refreshing! We will be back.

Still Getting There

Stayed a couple times previously. No bar at night, and the beds were really hard. Not sure if they are new or not. Currently not serving dinner there. There’s potential, and charm.
