Morrison House Review

The architecture, parquet floors, crystal chandeliers, fireplaces, and furnishings here are so faithful to the Federal period (1790–1820) that the hotel is often mistaken for a renovation rather than what it is: a structure built from scratch in 1985. Some rooms have fireplaces and four-poster beds, and all come with bathrobes and a pack of fresh-baked cookies on your pillow. The highly regarded Grille restaurant serves American contemporary cuisine.

    Charming Boutique Hotel

    This inn is a delight. It is tucked off the main strret in Old town. Staff is very friendly and welcoming. Cocktain hour is like stepping back in time... Bedrooms are very comfortable and clean. Had best night in piano bar: it was top entertainment with a lady named Pat playing the piano and super voices supplied my the locals. A must if you are in the area!!!!
