We had an excellent experience in one of the "privilege" rooms. The location of the property is very accessible for walking to sites and dining. The grounds are lovely and there is private parking. There is a small pool and good sized area for lounging outdoors. The hotel expresses Ms. Sylvie's decorating flair with many interesting design touches and furnishings....

The decor was thoughtful, with a touch of humor and whimsy! And the innkeeper was SO gracious and friendly–the best service we've received on our trip so far! There are only 10 rooms in...

Breakfast and parking extra but well worth it. Our room was on the first floor and huge. It was probably an owner suite at some point. King size bed and spa bathroom. There...

We basically just showed up hoping for a room and was greeted with a super friendly staff member and was offered a fantastic room for my family. The room is clean, modern and very spacious. I can't recommend this place enough!
