Victorian elegance defines this hotel dating from 1846. The three-story brick facade and white-pillared porch look out on Main Street. Guest rooms have turn-of-the-20th-century antiques and spacious bathrooms with fine Italian towels and bathrobes. The restaurant and bar inhabit four intimate antiques-filled rooms, including a front room with a piano and a bar room with a fireplace. The wine list runs 85 pages. The bar and lounge attract a sophisticated crowd.

After spending nearly 10 years on the South Fork, my family and I still love hitting this unique boutique hotel for excellent food and supreme service. The hotel rooms are somewhat dated, offering typical bed and breakfast size rooms for a very high price. However, the evening cocktail scene at this old world classic bar is not to be missed. The rich and famous may hang with Muffy and Buffy for a Cosmo but you would never feel out of place. Make
sure you visit in a night that their head bartender, Vincent is on duty. Your every whim is his command. However, don't show your blue blood credentials to him. He'll have no time for you or your attitude. Its about friends gathering at a classy, world class restaurant. Leave your family tree at home. Meals are outstanding with an eccletic, yet classic french menu at premium city prices. However, this is THE nicest restaurant on the entire South Fork. Not to be missed; Filet of Ostrich and the Panhandle Buffalo Steak au Poivre.
