Meticulous attention to detail distinguishes this late-19th-century inn owned by a husband-and-wife team. The building has been gloriously restored in accordance with the aesthetics of the Victorian era, while the beds are the finest that modernity has to offer and are topped with goose-down comforters. Busy, colorful wall coverings reach to the high ceilings. Antiques include a burled-walnut headboard and dresser set, carved golden-oak beds, and wicker steamship chairs.
Lace curtains and hand stenciling grace the rooms at the Allen Inn. If you want a fireplace, the same owners run the Amherst Inn at 257 Main Street.
