Fodor's Review

Built in 1766 as the Troy Tavern & Inn, this well-run lodging has wraparound porches on two levels; the ground-floor porch leads into an antiques-filled parlor and a dining room with flowers on the sideboards. In fact, the inn owes its porches to a brief period as the private home of Franklin L. Pope (1840–1895), the inventor of the one-wire telegraph; portraits of the electrical innovator and his wife are displayed on the mantel in the front room. The guest rooms, many of which have fireplaces and four-poster beds, contain a mix of modern and period furnishings. The two modern rooms in the carriage house have kitchenettes.
