Deborah has the most warm and sweet hospitality personality, which compliments this beautiful historical inn "Delaunay House" and we were honored/blessed to feel so much part of the inn as we also felt like family from the beginning of my phone calls to book a room to her making sure our say was comfortable when we arrived. Deborah mentioned several times if there was anything we needed or could do for us, she was a text or phone call away. She even gave us a tour of as much of the house as she could and share so many stories of "this old house" We also met Kim who was sweet as well as Deborah's daughter.
They were full of hospitality, yet, they disappear when not in need and were there if you need them.:) We didn't call upon them but her and Kim surprised me with beautiful home picked flowers in a beautiful vase. Not only did our daughter and son in law graduated that weekend at SOU it was my birthday and Father's day. So we were on the go and the location was perfect and the peacefulness of the Inn was a big plus for us.
Sure this is an old historical home so if things were not perfect but it was very adequate. The wireless internet worked without any problems. Yes, WiFi in a beautiful 1908 home was a blessing for us to communicate with our family members.
My husband & I stayed in the" Pioneer Suite" for three nights (June 14,15,16) It was lovely and roomy. Listening to the floor make creaking noise brought music to our ear because our old home does this as well and if only floors could talk. right? That's is just one of the beauties you will find along with antiques with stories of each one. I loved the lush deep velvet chair in our room. Our patio was not used but it had a peaceful feeling when our door was opened or as we passed by. It was great to have a private patio but the front porch with the rocking chairs oh how I wish I could have stayed and visit with our neighbors..I will reply to someones comment: Please don't fret about the little dust or cobwebs.. wipe them away or call Deborah, she would have came or someone else in a heartbeat, that was our experience. I could go on but must go now. With my daughter living in Ashland it is very possible I will visit the Inn again!
