Online reservation was easy. Very friendly service. We were coming back in very late and they made sure we knew how to get in. The room was clean and quiet. Breakfast the next morning was superb. This was a last minute decision to stay overnight in the area. We would do it again.

Stayed in the Parten Suite which was a very large room with bathroom that included a large tub/spa and shower. Free Wireless and cable included. Bed was comfortable and the hotel was very quiet.

Very nice victorian hotel/b&b that beats the crap out of the other hotel options in Madisonville. Dining is unbelieveable- one would not expect a restaurant of this caliber in a small hotel/b&b. Have stayed there three times and will always stay there when in the Madisonville area. The rooms are very clean, the prices are very reasonable, and the decor of the rooms is in Victorian style- far different than staying in a hotel. The folks there will get whatever you need and are very accomodating. Would have given five stars, but the damn computer thing would not allow me to do it.

My husband and I spent a restful weekend at this quiet retreat and really enjoyed the many antiques in the house. The food pretty much just blew us away! The dinner was among the best we have ever had anywhere!!! If you're traveling hwy 45, take the Madisonville exit and go eat at this wonderful old historical hotel!!
