Romantic Interest

Antique, clawfoot bathtubs (and bubble bath!), the European-style balcony and fireplace lounge, and the fine art, vintage quilts and Italian lighting fixtures decorating the Inn all combine for a lovely, romantic ambiance. Dan and Elisse saved this historic building and lovingly restored it - and if that's not romance, what is?
