Liked: I loved the location! The building itself is a huge surprise and joy to stay in. There was a fire across the street one of the nights we were staying there, and thus ended up with out power for a portion of our stay. The kitchen was lite with Candles! It made it a real cozy and enchanting experiance. Next time I'm in town this is where i'm staying!!
