Nice rooms and super clean. Every room is different. The Sherwood Inn is very charming from top to bottom. When we arrived on Friday, all the unoccupied rooms had the door open so we could tour around and see them. Nothing left amiss. One of the staff was polishing the old wood floors. Bookcases everywhere with everything from the classics...

Our family enjoyed a birthday party with 20 people in a gorgeous room surrounded by two walls of windows looking out on the lake. The service was impeccable with delicious appetizers of crab and thinly slice smoked salmon. Lunch was the most tender of roast beef done to perfection served on Kimmelweck rolls and homemade potato chips that were out...

We had family dinner and it was great. Pot roast dinner never fails, steak tender and shrimp cocktails perfection ! Au gratin potatoes were to die for !! Asparagus tender but not over cooked. Local wines delish !!

We visited the Sherwood Inn for a night away after a particularly stressful month. The staff could not have been more friendly and welcoming, to the point that the desk people paged a fellow from the staff to help us carry our suitcase up to the room (third floor). Be warned, the Sherwood Inn has no elevator. Our room, number...

Drove through SkinnyAtlas and decided to stop here for lunch on Jan. 1st. We came in and found a table near the massive old world sort of bar. We were seated next to the window overlooking the lake so maybe anything would've tasted good in that setting? Our server, Emily was responsive and friendly. Lunch started with amazing stretch bread...

We spent 2 nights at the Sherwood Inn at the end of October. The staff was friendly and the rooms were clean, which is very important to us. Every Room is unique and our room was very spacious and had a gas fireplace. When we arrived on Friday evening the Inn was very crowded but it cleared out after about...

Several visits here, never disappointed. Grilled salmon salad hooked me several years ago, along with the French onion soup. Next the crab cakes which are always a favorite to my palate. Yesterday the hot turkey sandwich and hot cider. Dickens Festival characters in song in the lobby, along with a log fire and decorations of tester year. It was amazing.

While enroute northward, my partner received an email with a special rate for the Sherwood Inn. After a bit of discussion, we decided to take advantage. We were able to reserve the smallest room in the Inn, room 26. Comfortable, cozy, close, it was. We enjoyed our brief sojourn. More about meals elsewhere.

This is one of the best hotels to stay in if you're planning a trip , the front desk staff was always happy and very helpful. The rooms are nice . It's located right in the heart of the town and within walking distance to everything.
