We stayed at the Abbeymoore and the Amethyst for our 25th wedding anniversary the week of the 4th of May 2010. We have stayed in the Abigail's several times for previous anniversaries and revisited their honeymoon suites this weekend to compare and also toured the Gatsby for future reference. When we return we will stay at either the Abbeymoore and or (probably and) the Amethyst for between these two we haven't a favorite. We would have our daughter's weddings at the Amethyst. The innkeepers are most hospitable, the home is perfectly suited for such an event and is very elegant. Next time, we will stay in the Duchess room. The inn keepers will work with you on the price of you stay and offer fantastic discounts when they can.
