  • The back bar is also old and I think the very original back bar

      This is just an average place but it is super nice. Actually, it is a tavern, restaurant, and hotel combination. The location is really good and bad. It is on a main street in the town and parking on the street is really bad, but there is parking in the back of the building and that is where I go to park. It is just a gravel parking lot, but it is always clean and well lit. You can get into the building from the back. It is an old brick building but the steps into the building are well taken care of and safe.

      When you come into the building you walk down a long hall to the main lobby. The main lobby and the tavern are together. If there are alot of people in the tavern sometimes it is difficult to get the bartender’s or clerks attention for help. The tavern is very old

      in a good way. There is a tin ceiling in the tavern done in a tarnished silver color. The floors are all wood - worn but they have a real pretty “patina” to them. The back bar is also old and I think the very original back bar. It has the big mohagany columns along the long bar. Between the columns are large beveled mirrors and in front of them are different colored lit bottle stands. This is very pretty. Since the bar is so dark the lights make the bar really stand out. The coolers under the back bar are the built in’s under the bar with the big heavy doors and the old time door latches. The actual bar is an old carved up black thing. I think if the bar could talk it would have lots of stories to tell. The only thing new in the bar are the stools - they are ...

      • an orange color with backs on them - don’t match the decor at all!!!!!!

        The little attached restaurant is all homemade food. They serve things like boiled dinner and sauerkraut. Ham on the bone and pea soup. Fried chicken with stuffing and on and on. Remember all the things you ate as a kid - the owner’s wife does all the cooking and she is a really good cook. The breakfasts are tummy fillers - big servings and all the coffee you can drink.

        The rooms upstairs are all about the same. They are really simple, but are nice rooms or they really are suites. The rooms have a rather large bedroom and a sitting room and bathroom. The bedrooms have queen size bed in them. The ceilings are tin with filligre decoration. The walls are partially done in wallpaper with a chair rail in the middle of the wall with paint on the upper portion. The room

        I was in had neutral colors on them. The rooms had handmade cotton curtains from beautiful colored material. The floors were wood with rag runs. Actually, the decor looked very country. There was a small contemporary sofa in the room with a rocking chair that you could have rocked yourself to sleep in. The bathroom surprisingly had a separate tub and shower. They were very plain with a white tub and sink. The shower was a brown tiled circular shower. The towels were beautiful. They were hand embroidered to give a special touch. They wer very thick and fluffy. The rooms smelled good and you could see the owners were proud of their business.

        It is by no means the Hilton, but it is a very nice place. The prices for the room were $65 per night. It was worth the money and a whole lot more. Like I said - nice place.
