This is such a unique place. The town is small but full of character. The beds were comfy and the food was delicious, and listening to the band on the patio was the perfect way to spend a warm evening. The whiskey bar downstairs has a pretty decent selection also.

One of my favorite Midwestern hotels for a get away or holiday. The staff is superb, the restaurant top quality and the hotel is impeccably kept. Wilson, itself is a charming small town, with Lake Wilson nearby and beautiful drives in every direction. I have spent a number of memorable stays here and look forward to the next visit.

One of my favorite hotels in the world. I love the history, the rooms are cozy, the ghost stories are much needed, and the garden in the summer is peaceful. I recommend the restaurant/bar. Sit outside when the weather is nice and walk around the town. I always enjoy moments of peace when I visit.
