Welcome to the Inn
The Inn is a bed & breakfast where the
emphasis is on providing a comfortable home away
from home. There is no elaborate B&B
breakfast. A selection of tempting
delicacies—such as freshly baked breads or
pastries and seasonal fruit—as well as orange
juice, coffee, and tea are informally provided
in the Salon each morning (at your leisure).
A well-equipped kitchenette on the second
floor is always available for your use. You can
also get more substantial breakfasts at
wonderful nearby restaurants along Elmwood
Avenue. If you would like recommendations about
local restaurants and activities, please ask me:
my aim is to be helpful without being intrusive.
