Historic Interest

The inn was built in 1869 as a private summer cottage for John and Charlotte McIlvaine of Philadelphia. The architecture of the Inn was changed mid-construction from Queen Anne Victorian style to Colonial Revival Shingle style. Many of the original features of the Inn remain intact such as transitional electric fixtures which were originally lit by gas. The chimney staircase is a unique feature of the house.
