Part of the fun of visiting museums and historic places is trying out various inns, hotels, and B & B's. The Bee & Thistle Inn is conveniently located next door to the Francis Griswold Museum. This had to be the easiest transition from venue to inn ever! The added bonus was, we could continue enjoying the grounds and sculpture of the museum after checking in. I highly recommend a stay at the Bee & Thistle. The house was built in 1756. It is a large building with many beautifully decorated rooms. Our room was #10 on the third floor. Even though the trek up 2 flights of stairs was long there was so much to look at that I hardly minded at all.
There is a restaurant at the Bee & Thistle. Charlie & I both enjoyed the Milestone Cabernet Sauvignon. Seating was very comfortable and we were not crowded, yet, there were plenty of guests to insure popularity. The next morning, there was an egg breakfast + other healthy choices included with our stay. The staff was friendly and helpful.I would definitely return.
