The 1861 Inn, built just prior to the beginning of the Civil War, offers the welcoming ambiance of a gentleman’s country home. Carefully restored and tastefully decorated, the inn offers a relaxing respite for the business traveler, a peaceful destination for a reunion with family or friends, a girls' getaway or a romantic weekend escape.
Relish the out-of-doors from your private porch, luxuriate in the hot tub, or relax on an old-fashioned swing. The inn’s common areas have inviting fireplaces and comfortable couches for reading and visiting with other guests. Spacious porches are the perfect venue for morning coffee or an evening cocktail. During the season, the pool deck is yet another spot to enjoy a quiet moment.
Culinary treats are guaranteed at the 1861 Inn. Your host is a culinary arts program graduate and takes great pride in presenting delightful breakfast fare. A typical breakfast might include a delectable hot entrée complemented with fresh fruits and home baked scones or cakes.
