Our circa 1865 Second Empire Victorian is graced with large rooms, 10-foot ceilings, elaborate moldings, and a coffered ceiling in the 18'x30' living room. The living room's fireplace, baby grand piano, cookbook collection, and plentiful comfortable seating welcome you to sit and relax. For several months of the year the large front porch provides an outdoor room for your enjoyment; the deep setback from the street allows privacy and an opportunity to watch life go by in a small town.
A full country breakfast is served in our dining room or on our gingerbread front porch in season.
Breakfast always includes:
- Juices and fresh fruit
- Homemade baked goods including our signature scones
- Egg dish of the day
- Pancake/Waffle/French toast of the day
- Bacon, Sausage, or Ham
- New England Coffee, a variety of loose Teas, Hot Chocolate
- By the second morning you will probably be requesting the "half and half"
Each evening dessert with coffee and tea is offered in the living room about
9PM. The innkeeper’s background includes owning a wholesale dessert company in
the Boston area for about 20 years. Desserts range from small fancy cookies and
pastries to cakes, tortes, crepes, fruit crisps and crumbles, profiteroles, and
Late afternoon you will find beverages and snacks. You are always welcome in the kitchen to help yourself to coffee and tea. Although the Inn does not have a liquor license, you are welcome to BYO. We are well-supplied with sodas, mixers, glasses, ice buckets and you have access to refrigeration space.
All of the rooms at The Inn on Park Street are provided with:
- Thick terry robes
- AM/FM clock radios
- Extra pillows
- Hair dryers

Bedding is high thread count 100% cotton and the sheets are hand-ironed. Down
duvets, 100% wool Faribault blankets, and natural cotton fiber bedspreads
complete the ensemble. Each room has a sitting area, good lighting for reading,
luggage racks, and air conditioning.
The Theresa Room has cable TV/VCR with a supply of movies, and its bathroom has a very large jacuzzi tub. The Bonnie Carol is our pet-friendly room (by prior arrangement). Wi-Fi access is accessible on the gingerbread front porch as well as in all rooms.
We are earnest in our efforts to make you feel completely at home. You are encouraged to use the kitchen door if you wish and to stop for a coffee and a sweet as you pass through.
Lastly, our finest amenity is the village itself. You will find the neighbors friendly and the shopkeepers helpful. The shops and galleries as well as the bookstore will help you slip into a different frame of mind. The architecture of Park Street is a mini-course in late 19th century building styles; the homes have been well-maintained and the stroll to the town green is one of the must dos. Grab an ice cream cone at the antique ice cream parlor on your trip. Cross the street and watch the traffic stop for you!
