I have stayed at The Pillar Inn on multiple occasions and call it a home away from home. Sue and Jill go out of their ways to make things as comfortable as possible. It is not another featureless hotel—it is an actual turn of the century home. My grown up kids stayed with me here this visit, and really enjoyed the ambiance. Thumbs up!!

The only issue was the dog in n the house when we arrived. The description said “ no pets” and it was the first thing that greeted us! My wife is allergic so this is an issue!

My only criticisms are relatively minor - a little annoying repeated queries about arrival time when I kept saying I couldn't say for certain. The exterior of the house also needs some more upkeep. But inside it was very nice and the staff/ owners are clearly trying successfully to provide a good, historically themed experience at a moderate price. I wish I could have gi a 4.5 rating.
