Fodor's Review

The largest house in town when it was built in 1845, this three-story brick manse is still plenty impressive. The antiques-filled parlors are a study in timeless good taste. Rooms vary greatly in terms of size and grandeur (the inn even has some very affordable single roomss), and all are decorated in a low-key, traditional style.

Our Room Was Like Sleeping in a Coffin

Our twin bedded room in the main inn building was very small, was not air conditioned, was dingy and outdated, poorly lit, and cost $225/night. The staff was adequate with the exception of the bar staff. Last call at 11:15 on a Saturday night, for inn guests who had been in earlier in the evening and eaten at the bar - come on! Aside from an in-town walk to everything location, I do not have any raves about the Jared Coffin House. I would recommend

checking out the smaller guest houses that accept short term guests and trying those for a better experience
