A little secret you hate to share

We've stayed 4 times now and love it. It's almost like secret place you don't want to let others know about so you can always get a room. Staff is super friendly and the room, #1 for this stay exceeded expectations. Highly recommend!!


Great place and stay.

The firehouse inn is a great place. Sandi is so sweet and makes you feel right at home,she's a great inn taker!! I've never stayed at a bed and breakfast inn but it was great.very very clean and anything you need they have. We had room 4 I will say if you have a large dog and a crate it's a little too small (I know for next time). It is nice to have places that aren't just hotels that are dog friendly especially since they are our kids and we take them everywhere. I'll definitely be staying there again when we visit family.


Great Place

Stayed here for one night as I was passing through this area looking at Christmas lights. Beautiful place. High ceilings, homie feel. Common area is worth its weight in gold! The location is great, too. Walking distance to antiquing and a coffeeshop, and even a Crossfit gym! I stayed in Room 3, and while it was overkill, since this room has 3 beds (two in the LOFT!!), but it was perfect.


Beautiful!

My fiancé and I really enjoyed our stay at the Firehouse Inn. We love history so the story of the place was very interesting to us. The rooms are gigantic! We think the ceilings in our room were over 20 ft high. Everything was very comfortable and charming. They also have very nice soap in the room from their onsite boutique which is adorable.


Good place to stay

I enjoyed my stay. My room was a little smaller than I expected, but the bathroom and shower were solid. The food was alright, not great, but the conversation with my fellow guests was stimulating and very enjoyable. Side street parking right next to the entrance was always available.

Lovely old building! The rooms are beautiful! The breakfast was very good and one can have snacks and coffee at anytime. Everyone is friendly and welcoming. The town is quaint, too. Will come back!

I had a very pleasant stay at the Firehouse Inn. The room was larger than i expected and very tastefully decorated. Plenty of extra towels if I had a need for them. The room had a refrigerator and even bath robes were provided. Buddy Nidey


Wonderful experience!

I stayed 2 nights and found the room beautifully decorated, very clean, and very comfortable. The staff, also, was friendly and helpful. Staying at the Firehouse Inn was a delight. :)
