4.0 on November 29, 2016

The inn history and architecture is lovely and that is the most important part for me. I greatly enjoyed the breakfast! The owners were great if not a little stern on the check-in time. We tried very hard to arrive in time but since we were on vacation we were a little late. I would definitely stay again and encourage you to stay as well. My only thought is that it is time to upgrade a bit, large tvs with the VCR combos need to go, the peeling paint and old mattresses need to go as well. I wanted to look around in the gift shop but it also serves as an office and was a bit messy. I absolutely hate to leave anything but wonderful reviews, but then thought how can anyone know to make changes if no ones tells them. It is a beautiful home and as I said before we will stay again!

Innkeeper Response
We are so glad you felt comfortable in our home and enjoyed your stay with us. We are sorry for the apparent disarray of our gift shop as we were in the process of changing our decorations from fall to Christmas the weekend that you were here. We consider having DVD/VCR combination units in our rooms to be an amenity as it gives our guests the option to view one of the 180+ VHS tapes that we have in our library, some of which are not available anymore. Hope to see you again soon.

Breakfast was outstanding

We stayed in the Hazlett Suite. Room was nice. Big deck off the back that was relaxing. Bathroom was TINY. If you are a big or tall person do not take this room or the one next to it. The bathroom is a converted closet with a big step up at the door. Shower was only 3 foot by 3 foot, so if you have broad shoulders you are not going to like this shower. Most of the other Suites had larger baths so consider getting one of those instead. Common areas were very Victorian with beautiful antiques. Breakfast was unique each morning and delicious! Owners were very friendly and easy to work with. Value was good for the location. Definitely will stay again.

This is a beautiful, well maintained, historic home located in a quiet Abilene neighborhood next to the park and community pool. Just a 5 minute drive to the Eisenhower library and museum as well as Old Abilene attractions. Our hosts were very accommodating and Adrian's breakfast was superb. Jim & Carol, Colorado Springs
