          The Magic Door turned out to be one of the best b&bs we've been in the US. It's a vintage home restored to historic look and feel. All the decor and touches are reminiscent of 19th Century, early 20th. Pamela, the owner, has put a...More

          Carleton Is about 10 blocks from the inn... Definitely walkable as long as the weather is not super cold. Thanks for your inquiry!
