BOOK YOUR STAY

THE HEART OF THE "HARBOR OF HOSPITALITY"

The Inn is cozy with fine furnishings, oriental rugs, original artwork, luxurious linens, a stunning Cristofori player baby grand piano gracing the living room, and Waterford Crystal chandeliers adorning the dining room and foyer.

There are four luxurious bedrooms in the adult-only Main House and one master suite above the Carriage House, complete with authentic soaking tubs and showers. The Carriage house is our largest space and is great for romantic getaways and families(children over 12 only). The Inn is surrounded by lush lawns, shrubs, and trees and is housed in a 1930's brick Georgian Revival-style manor house built by William and Alice Culpepper. On the grounds, you will find a large in-ground swimming pool, a screened porch to accent outdoor activities, and quiet areas to relax and enjoy the grounds.

Please, review our policies below prior to making a reservation with us. If you have questions, give us a call. We look forward to meeting you!

If the Main Inn is under contract for an event, children may attend with adult constant supervision. The 7 other rooms outside the Main Inn all accommodate children over 12, as do all of our shared common areas outside the Main Inn.”
