                  Beautiful, peaceful surroundings. Such "old world" charm. Hospitality was fantastic. A home away from home.

One doesn't have to have a huge selection of food but some fresh fruit and some pastries would go down well. The room served its purpose of a comforta...

                  The views, the service and the atmosphere of this Inn was so comforting. Wish we'd stayed longer!
