"A wonderful combination of old and new. Marian and Pete Sorensen built this Greek Revival-style replica in 1992, balancing 19th-century style and 20th-century comfort. The guest rooms open directly off the oversized, grand foyer. At the end of the hall is the bright and airy dining room, with an over-sized country French dining table, overlooking the beautifully landscaped garden. The kitchen is stocked with chilled wine, glasses, and such treats as lemon pound cake. The innkeepers' quarters are separated by a screened porch/walkway - "we never even saw their sweet little dog, Toto, until we were leaving."
"The Starlight room has a king-size bed, with a baby pink duvet and abundance of European-style pillows. The seating area has overstuffed chairs and a reading lamp; across the room was an armoire for the TV, and two floor-to-ceiling, lace-covered windows. Marian's 'less is more' decorating works perfectly. The bath was huge, with a clawfoot tub, hand-held shower, pedestal basin, and fresh, fluffy towels. In the morning a soft tap at the door announced the arrival of a silver tray with coffee and tiny homemade muffins. About 30 minutes later (about 9 A.M.) breakfast is served in the dining room; the first Morning it was fruit compote in crystal goblets, and eggs Benedict served on fine china; the next day we had delicious French toast. Pete is the chef and Marian is the gracious server. They know the area well and were pleased to provide directions and recommendations." (Karen Brian)
