we ate dinner (excellent!) in the library (fireplace, cozy), danced in the lounge to Shiny Lapel Trio (wicked fun band! that we follow), stayed over night, (comfortable bed and very cute view overlooking main street).
the room was not the same as was shown on your web site. 8 x 10 so small it was horrible. we left as they would not give us another room they said the small rooms are the rooms people get when they book through expedia. I called and asked for my money back but have not heard anything back. Your people said they had to get the money back from the griswold before I would get my money back. I recommend expedia not having anything to do with this inn again. I don't think I would book another room through expedia again as this left a really bad taste in my mouth for your web site.
