Brunch is fabulous. Interesting choices and delicious food. If you stay at the inn, though, and have dinner there, many of the food choices are the same as at brunch.

Rooms are pretty run-of-the-mill. Actually, I was a little surprised that they weren't more distinctive since it is a historical property.
