Comfortable B&B

4.8 on October 27, 2014

We were tired after a long trip when we arrived at the inn. We were shown to our room, which was an upgrade to the room we had reserved. We were thrilled! There was a living room with a fireplace, a cozy bedroom, and a large marble-floored bath with a whirlpool bath (very welcoming), and a shower. Our suite and the rest of the inn were beautifully decorated with period furnishings. We had dinner in the Inn's restaurant. It was delicious! We had the Pork Rib-eye. I highly recommend it. In the morning, a hearty breakfast was served in a sunny dining area. Everyone working at the Inn was pleasant and made sure we have everything we needed. We would definitely return.

A Remarkable INN!!

My wife Pat, Peter, Jeanne and my dogs Katy&Samantha and I had a wonderful stay at the Dorset. We consider this the BEST INN for great food, drink and rooms and staff and we will be retuning. Hope more folks will come and stay with you and discover a truly wonderful vacation! Once again, Thank you all. Ed Roberts

We loved this inn. The innkeepers were very nice and welcoming. The rooms were very beautiful. The food was amazing! It was wonderful to have the chef come out of the kitchen to check on how we liked our meal. The inn is full of charm and wonderful unique items. I would highly recommend this inn.
