Run with family-style friendliness, this historic country inn with lovely gardens has guest rooms furnished with antiques and decorated with Scandinavian quilts and other Old World influences. A large stone fireplace fronts the great room and there's a cozy library and a light-filled sunroom, where breakfast is served during warmer months. Fresh flowers and organic fruits and berries come from the surrounding gardens; breakfast includes jams and chutneys canned on-site.
Seasonal events are hosted in the adjacent courtyard, which doubles as an outdoor art gallery May to October. A massive silver maple rises from its heart.
