Forsyth Park Inn Review

First, do not make the mistake, as some do, and think that this is the Mansion on Forsyth Park, which is directly across the green; this is not even close to that luxury category. A yellow, wood-frame Queen Anne home (circa 1893), its exterior, gardens, and courtyard are its most appealing features. Indoors, the parlor has parquet floors and is furnished with some proper Queen Anne pieces, but much is simply old. The parlor fireplace is a focal point, and it is fun to open the tall windows and step onto the veranda here; many guests take their breakfast out there among the rockers and ferns. All rooms are exceptionally large, but the best are number 7 (with its black floral fabrics and fireplace) and number 5, and number 9. Children and pets are allowed only in the cottage out back, but its condition is a little worn and not as well furnished as the main house.
