Perfect romantic getaway

5 on March 24, 2014

Me and my boyfriend were looking for something to do out of the ordinary and as a romantic getaway and I have to say staying in the Morgan Samuels inn is just that. We stayed in the Victorian suite which was a beautiful room. At first I was disappointed about not having a television in the room, but then realized its not needed and helps with the getaway experience. We were also provided with excellent service and the breakfast was something neither of us have ever experienced or will ever forget. Definitely worth the money.

Tranquil and romantic

This is a beautiful home that was a delightful getaway. We stayed in the Antique Rose room and loved the views of the property and the warm in-room fireplace. The breakfast was outstanding. Wonderful fresh fruit, freshly squeezed juice, only the highest quality breakfast meats. We felt really welcomed by John, the owner, and enjoyed talking to him. We only wish that our stay was a lot longer than one night. We felt it was really reasonabley priced for the accomodation, atmosphere, and high quality of the entire experience. We definitely plan to return.

Two Nights and Two Rooms

4.8 on January 09, 2014

Stayed two nights at the Morgan Samuels Inn in early January, first night in the Antique Rose Room, the second night was in the Morgan Suite. Both rooms were very clean, well cared for, and featured antique king beds with luxury linens . The Antique Rose Room had high-quality antique furniture including bed, love seat, dressers, etc. Gas fireplace was wonderful and easy to use. Bathroom was spacious with large, 2-person jacuzzi tub. Jacuzzi tub also had a large shower head. The Antique Rose Room overall was charming, quaint, and intimate. The Morgan Suite is gorgeous. 11 or 12 ft ceiling, beautiful architecture and furniture. Very spacious, featuring large bedroom with sitting area near wood fireplace. Jacuzzi room was also large with plenty of space for luggage and dressing. Separate bathroom featured sunken tub and a enclosed shower. Very nice. John Sullivan is a wonderful host and ensures that you have what you need to make your stay comfortable, but he also knows how to give couples their space. He is a chef of outstanding quality. Highly recommend any food that comes from his kitchen. He uses only the best ingredients and has clearly mastered his craft. The inn itself is spacious and rich in history. Many original paintings adorn the walls and it is tastefully decorated as you would imagine a wealthy 1800s mansion would be. It's property and setting are very restful and beautiful. The glass porch was one of the favorite sitting areas. This is a must-visit inn. We will be returning and recommending to others. Thanks to John and Julie Sullivan!

Best experience ever!

Our family needed some time away to recover from a family loss. I cannot praise the innkeepers (John & Julie Sullivan) at Morgan Samuel's Inn enough! They are so kind hearted and generous. They welcomed us in as if we were family! There is such a gentle, warm calmness over the place. The meal was exquisite! After enjoying an incredible 7 course dinner prepared by the Inn's private chef, served by his delightful wife, the following morning the delicacies continued! It was an unbelievable experience! We were so stuffed that we didn't need to eat for two days after our stay! We did of course, but there really was no need! The service was impeccable, our sleep was heavenly (they even had down pillows in the rooms!) and the new friendship that was formed was beyond compare. We left refreshed in body and mind, after a very sad year that preceded our visit. The Morgan Suite is luxurious, roomy and cozy all at the same time. The Evie suite is gracious with antique love letters all over the wall! We booked both rooms and loved them both. We spent a lot of time reading the love letters from days gone by. We have only been to one other B&B before this and to be honest, it was memorable in a very different way…. I could not praise our experience at the Morgan Samuels Inn any higher! This experience was beyond comparison! I hope to return again in the very near future. This was hands down the best experience ever!

Excellent Inn Experience

The best Inn we've stayed at. Aside from the spacious grounds and comfortable rooms the proprietor, John, is an excellent chef; he and his staff prepare outstanding meals with plenty to choose from on the menu! Will definitely visit again!
