We are known for our attention to detail and thorough cleanliness at the Inn. We disinfect common areas and high-touch areas several times a day and can ensure a clean environment by deep cleaning frequently. Guest rooms are always thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. However, if you would feel comfortable bringing your own pillow, you are welcome to. We also supply air purifiers in the rooms to recirculate the air in common rooms and guest rooms after they are vacated. We are available to restock towels, empty garbage, etc. If you are in need of anything such as clean towels or amenities, please call the front desk.


The Inn cannot be overcrowded since we can only accommodate five guest rooms. We offer three tables in our dining room that are separated by six feet. We also have tables on the covered porch and in the parlor. We offer a full-service breakfast daily at 9:00 AM.
