Fodor's Review

Afternoon wine, cheese, and appetizers and luscious evening desserts and sherry are served in the atmospheric main parlor of this fine town house built by Eliza Thompson's loving husband, Joseph, for her and their seven children in 1847. This gracious Federal-style home was transformed into a B&B by the first "new" owners in 1977; a boatload of furnishings and portraits in gold-leaf frames were shipped over from England. The rooms are well appointed, some with antiques and vintage beds, fine linens, and other designer accents. The R. Bruce room, with its draped ceiling and original hardwood floors, is considered the most elegant. A full breakfast is taken in the tranquil brick courtyard with its soothing fountains. Adjacent is a New Orleans–esque carriage house with 13 moderately priced rooms. It's worth noting that this inn is rumored to be haunted, and several travelers have had spine-tingling experiences here.
