We stayed in the beautiful Emerald Room, just steps from parking and with very easy access. This was important to me as I personally would have had difficulty maneuvering the steep interior steps from the lobby to the second floor rooms. While we had the convenience of being near the parking area, everything was still very quiet, with no noise from the parking lot or other rooms. The room is exactly as seen in the photographs on the website, with elegant furnishings and beautiful old wood floors. The bathroom maintained this sense of elegance while providing modern amenities such as the whirlpool tub and over-sized shower. The staff was very welcoming, and we especially enjoyed the hot washcloths infused with orange and clove, which was offered when we arrived. This was my first visit to a bed and breakfast, and it was an excellent introduction into this type of lodging. Very highly recommended.
