Rosie, the house Bichon, keeps watch at this mid-19th-century inn with decadent suites and rooms that exude romance. The dark and masculine Chesterfield Suite is a favorite, with its massive four-poster bed and cheetah-print robes. The owners have thought of every detail, and some rooms have flat-screen TVs that revert to gilt-frame mirrors when not in use. Some rooms have fireplaces, whirlpool tubs, and steam showers. Guests are treated to a nightly wine-and-cheese reception,
as well as a bountiful full breakfast, served family-style beneath a stunning crystal chandelier. Raspberry-stuffed pancakes are a favorite. Complimentary Wi-Fi and free local and long-distance calls are among the pluses.
