Fodor's Review

If you've had enough of the ubiquitous floral fabrics found in many New England inns, this renovated 19th-century manse, once the residence of the town's pastor, is a pleasant alternative. The interior has been given a refreshing redesign that incorporates a modern boutique aesthetic, especially in the attached gastropub, which features a long, polished metal bar and backlighted marble among industrial accents. The rooms (named after birds) maintain a nice balance of old and new schools in furnishings and decor. The 6-acre property also includes several cottages, tennis courts, a pool, and an outdoor patio with a fire pit.
