05 July 2006 would recommend this property

Liked: Historic liocation and ambiance, friendliness of staff and guests, accessibility of carriage-house bed and bath for a person with mobility challenges. However, there was no handicapped accessible entrance to kitchen and laundry facilities in the main house. An acceptable work-around could be to offer a food prep area with mini-refrigerator, microwave and pantry in the common area of the carriage-house. These appliances could be stacked to minimize floor space required.
