Stumbled onto this place by sheer dumb luck, with no plan of spending more than an hour in Plains. When I found plenty to keep me enthralled for a day and a half, I was sorry to learn that there was no place to spend the night.

The period furnishings were fabulous, and just put the whole experience over the top! The common areas led to delightful meetings with other guests, and rocking chairs on the 2nd floor veranda proved to be a favorite spot of mine...overlooking Main Street, the famous Train Depot and a lovely park, with the entire town dripping in MONSTER wisteria, dogwood and azalea blooms, it was truly a li'l bit o' heaven! The housekeeper Ruby keeps the entire operation clean, comfortable and welcoming.
