Beautiful rooms in a historic guest house. The staff was amazing and we felt very taken care of during our week long stay. I liked that it was very convenient to downtown but in a quieter neighborhood. Craft market across the street on Saturdays was great. Free Wifi and off street secure parking were a bonus. Very reasonably priced.
