We stayed in the McFarlene Room. The room is beautiful but not a lot of light so if lighting is your thing, this will not be the room for you. The entire inn is very historic and very cute. Connie in the Tavern is great!...More

I don't believe they have any rooms with two beds. It's a small inn. No more than two people allowed per room. We had a party of five and rented three rooms.
