My brother and his now wife were married here. I went and it was a beautiful wedding. The decor is perfect if you are planning a wedding or to spend the night. The mansion is now for sale but still open.

The Ann Starrett Mansion is on the National Historic Register. It was purchased by its current owner in the 1980s. The architecture is lovely and the decor is very period. Richard, who is the host, is a true sweetheart. He had maps of the town's...More

You'd have to call, although I'm sure the caretaker would be pleased to take you around. It is bed only, no breakfast.
