The Tavern Room is place to converse or put one of the many puzzles together while visiting with old or new found friends. Our front Parlor is the spot for a quiet moment to read one of the many volumes of books that are located throughout the inn, or play a board game within the warmth of the fire. There's even an old Victor Talking Machine to spin some old 78's and be taken back to the earlier days when life was taken at a slower pace. Don't forget the Patio outside were you can languish while sipping a cold beverage from our tavern.
