This is a beautiful historic late Victorian home, built 1897 by Frank Zanchi, a stone contractor. It is an unusual, one-of-a-kind home built with double round turrets which are extremely rare and make the home look like a castle. It was renovated and repointed in 2013 - 2014; parking, rear entry, new roof, and several guest baths added. It is on a double lot and has free guest parking in back. Each of the four rooms is double occupancy. One room (not pictured) has 2 twin beds.

Interaction with guests varies depending on the guests' needs. If requested a wealth of information about the local area is available, plus there is a rack with current pamphlets and book of local restaurant menus.
Innkeepers are almost always home and live in private quarters in the inn; so available if needed but out of your way.
Laundry service for biking and hiking guests (1 small load washed, line dried, folded) is available.
We have our business license, are insured, inspected and zoned as a Bed and Breakfast.
Our rates are structured to pay 6% state and 5% local hotel tax (as of July 1, 2016 AirBNB automatically collects and remits the 6% state tax; our rates have been adjusted to reflect this). We are a legal business and pay state and Federal income tax on all earnings.
We are on one of two main streets in a small city. There is some traffic noise during the day, less in the night. Ear plugs are available for guests who are very sensitive to noise.
We compete with other local accommodations in services and comfort, not on price. We will be glad to recommend other local places to stay if price is your primary concern.
No smoking in the home. Smoking outdoors is OK but please avoid other guests, open doors and windows. Guests come here to rest and relax so please no excessive noise, be considerate of others. Although we love them, we are not designed to accommodate small children nor pets.
