Reviewed 27 December 2015

This was a fine boutique hotel/ B&B but has closed. The hotel and its adjoining restaurant are vacant and striped of all furnishings. We had hoped it would reopen under new ownership but since it is striped to the bare walls that does not look likely.

Rooms very well done, some Retro but all clean, quaint and well done. Staff great, food/bar wonderful. Free wifi. Hotel pretty much in the heart of things. Enjoy your stay in a very old hotel that does Not smell like mildew.

Stayed: January 2015

Received a very unprofessional letter today canceling a confirmed reservation at this hotel. Rather sad that the sale of this hotel and transition is going extremely poorly. They obviously are in serious trouble and poorly planned this transition. Questions should be asked to Florida state hotel regulators. Are they a viable hotel? Is canceling confirmed reservations a sound strategy? Is it legal? Many people have posted they hoped the sale and transition would go smoothly. Apparently this place is having serious difficulties. Who can trust them now? Sad story. See email in attached photo.

We understand your disappointment and share your concerns. We just don't what other choices would have been better. We don't mean to be cynical, but our choices were to cancel your reservation or let you knock on the door when you arrive. We sincerely regret that this cancellation has disrupted your travel plans.. We have always bent over backwards to assist our guests with their requests and needs. It is very disheartening for us that the new owner did not fulfill his reservations obligations to you and others. However, we have made every effort to assist the new owner with a smooth transition but his total disregard for the needs of our guests has been all most entirely out of our control.

With warm regards and sincere regrets,
Tom & Pam Hutchins

For less than the cost of a decent room elsewhere, my wife and I spent two nights in this historic hotel where we received personalized service and had a tasty breakfast served each morning. We enjoyed a bottle of wine one night in the cozy lobby area and chatted with another couple who were doing the same. We also enjoyed morning walks in the nearby neighborhood full of historic homes encircling the town's perfectly round lake. The employees were all very friendly and we enjoyed a trp one night to nearby Bogey's restaurant. We will be back, for sure.

Room Tip: Ask for room with street view if you want to see anything out the window.
