Though established in the late 1700s, this coach-house inn burned down during the War of 1812 and was rebuilt in 1816. (Another casualty of that war, Capt. Colin Swayze, is believed to haunt the inn.) Rooms are each quite different in layout, but all have hardwood floors and rustic Colonial decor; some have rare pieces, like the Colonel's Suite, with its antique Irish bed. Note: three rooms have only a shower and no tub. The superior accommodations are the private two-story
cottages—also historic houses, both built in the 1800s—next door, ideal for two couples or a family; they have sofa beds, fireplaces, kitchens, and either 1½ or 2 bathrooms. These don't get daily housekeeping service but do include parking.
