Frequently Asked Questions


Here's a list of answers to the our most common questions. If you have others, give us a call. We look forward to hearing from you!
- Do you have pets?
We have a very friendly Tuxedo cat named Tuxy. You can find him most days curled up on the black coach near the fireplace. He loves people and will "ask" you for pets. He roams the residence and the main floor and rarely makes his way up to the upper guest floors. He is an indoor/outdoor cat so don't worry if he makes his way outside. He comes and goes as he pleases.

If possible, we highly recommend utilizing public transportation options when planning how to arrive at the Inn. The city has zoned parking in our neighborhood which is on a first come first serve basis for a 2 hour maximum. There are a few private parking lots near by should require overnight parking.
