Great place to stay for your honeymoon night. Loved the room. Very clean, and neat and just a peaceful place to stay. Great inn keepers made us feel like family. Planning on returning for our 1st anniversary all the way to our 51st. Loved the Grafton Winery next door within walking distance. Great couples special $30 for the two of us.

Easter Vacation

Came on vacation and stayed in the Owners Suite. We were very impressed with how clean, cozy and inviting our cottage was. We had a great view of the river, on our wrap around porch. We were able to drink wine and watch the sunset nightly. Its located centrally within blocks of all the wineries and sites. Nancy and Mike were very amicable and we look forward to seeing them again soon! Thank you for an awesome vacation!

We booked the two bedroom cottage for a friends birthday party in early September. The cottage was very clean, had everything we needed for our stay. Beds were also very comfortable. Shops, restaurants all within walking distance. Jeni J's shop is also a wonderful place! We enjoyed every minute of our stay.

4.0 on September 03, 2013

We had such a wonderful time in Grafton and Jeni J's is located within walking distance of most everything. We loved sitting on the front porch in the evening and early morning watching everything that was going on. There is no "dining" at Jeni J's, but there are plenty of other restaurants within walking distance.
