"Why Stay Anywhere Else" was my other choice for this review title. This quiet charming inn is a delight to stay. Whether you are here for just a few days or an extended period you will be made to feel welcome. The rooms are quiet and comfortable. The inn is walkable to the town of Ridgefield and serves a very nice breakfast. No reason to stay anywhere else (not even for reward points)!"
