The Inn, echoing the spirit and style of old New England, is a family-owned country inn located on three lush acres, including outdoor pool, hot tub and rambling stream. The Main Inn houses two lovely common rooms available to guests at all time and a seasonal screened-in patio.
The 13 nicely appointed guest rooms all have private bath, air-conditioning, telephones and free wireless internet access. A hearty continental breakfast is served each morning.
The Main Inn was built in 1821. The first floor includes a private restaurant and tavern, the Gathering Room and the Breakfast Room. The second floor includes four classic Bed & Breakfast rooms and a two-bedroom suite. The Country Lodge is a separate building with eight rooms, six at ground level. Each room has its own entrance.
The owners searched for two years and visited 36 inns from Maryland to Maine to find the perfect place to fulfill their dream of owning and operating an authentic country inn while raising their young family. Thirteen years later, they still love the choice they made! Former bed & breakfast owner/operators from Philadelphia, they have breathed new life into the charming and spacious accommodations while retaining the antique charm of the Main Inn and the casual comfort of the Country Lodge.
Four classic Bed & Breakfast rooms and a two-bedroom suite are housed on the second floor of the Main Inn. Just downstairs are the Breakfast Room and the Gathering Room where guests can relax on soft seating, read a book and enjoy the fire. Folks seeking the “bed & breakfast” experience often choose rooms in the Main Inn. To accommodate guests with allergies–The Main Inn is Pet Free.
