The Wright Stuff

This Inn, the staff and the owners are "The BEST". The main item the Inn boasts is a comfortable atmosphere. They do this very well. We have stayed at other Inns very close to The Wright Inn, but felt the owners were more interested in how wonderful THEY ARE instead of our satisfaction. We are now members of The Wright Inns list of Extremely SATISFIED Guests. Good Job to all.
