The room was modest and the age of the ol' girl shows. Typical small bathrooms from a place of this era, etc. But, staff were wonderful, everything was fine, the price was very good and you are steps from downtown Main street. It was great and homey for our purposes...delightful visit.

Great Inn with plush rooms. Quiet and friendly. Only one drawback was the traffic noise on the porch made it hard for conversation during the wine and cheese happy hour. Breakfast was outstanding with many local sourced foods and creative approach.

Lovely older B&B with comfort and charm. MIKE was a great host that takes care of all your needs. Wine and snacks on the porch was outstanding with getting to know more guests. YOU'LL love breakfast with locally sourced produce with great presentation.

This is an old boarding house and the rooms are beautifully furnished. Inn keepers were very friendly, knowledgeable and accessible. We have stayed in B&B's where you rarely saw the innkeepers, not so here. Easy walking distance to a wonderful downtown with many restaurants. The bed was so comfy! All the amenities that you could ask for. Social hour on... More

We had stayed here one time before and enjoyed. The new owners are very down to earth and interesting to spend time with.

We selected the inn for one night, our wedding anniversary. The gracious innkeeper welcomed us, arranged a great reservation for dinner, served wine and cheese for happy hour.

We stayed at the 1898 Waverly for 8 nights. Even though one of the owners was out of town, the Inn ran smoothly. Breakfast is made from local resources, and extra extra fresh ingredients.

Wonderful place to get away and relax. Mike and Tracy are perfect hosts. Rooms are very attractive and clean. Sitting on the front porch with a glass of wine while rocking provides a perfectly glorious experience. Can't wait to go back!

What a wonderful little inn! This not so well kept secret is probably one of the best b&bs I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. The Burnettes make you feel at home immediately with their attentiveness and kind words. And such a beautiful porch to enjoy social hour. I will be back soon.
