Our guest rooms and common areas are spacious and allow guests to maintain adequate “social distance” and since we only have seven guest rooms, our inn is not crowded and we do not have high volumes of travelers at any given time.
Our normal 72-hour cancellation policy is suspended and you can cancel the day of your reservation if necessary.
Private Dinner Service
Although the dining room is closed to the public we are offering our fine dining service for overnight guests. The six-course meal includes appetizer, demitasse of soup, salad with hot rolls, sorbet, entrée (choice of filet of beef with classic French sauce or a French-style breast of chicken) and dessert. Cocktails and wines continue to be available before and with dinner. We will attempt to accommodate dietary restrictions, however we must know in advance.
We understand the anxieties of these uncertain times and want to assure you that we will continue to be the safe oasis in your travels.
