Terry & Jeff are enjoying innkeeping and just a few of guests' comments tell it all:
"To say we were stunned to see such a pristine piece of history in better condition than when it was built in 1885 and appointed as by a professional designer, would be mild. The staff, the food, everything was 5 star- the views, 6 star. Our 30th anniversary was complete."
