The Sarah Kendall House is an absolute gem! The house is immaculate, our room was perfect and so comfortable. We loved the private deck. Our hosts, Fran and Brian are delightful. Breakfast both days were over the top with food and choices. The bagels were the best I have ever tasted. Your two are the quintessential inn keepers.

Every day there were fresh cookies and refreshments waiting for us and the breakfast was the most generous breakfast spread I have ever seen. There was hot food cooked to order plus bowls of...

We were very impressed by this historic and friendly inn. The home has been meticulously restored to its original state of grandeur and elegance. The owners are a friendly and delightful couple and the breakfast was superb. We stayed in the Isaac Kendall room and enjoyed the spaciousness, the gas fireplace and the very comfortable bed. We will definitely be... More
