Whether you're looking to enjoy the unique landscape, experience the historic architecture, shop and dine at the over 130 shops and restaurants on Main Street, or just relax, Aldrich Guest House is in the center of it all. Each guestroom has a queen-size bed, private en suite bathrooms, and individually controlled heat and air conditioning. Say goodbye to busy floral wallpaper, baby dolls, and doilies and say hello to classic, calm, and relaxing decor. Wine and hors d'oeuvres are served every evening as well as an award winning breakfast each morning at 8.30am. Homemade cookies, coffee, soda, and tea are available 24 hours a day as well. Add to the mix Robert and Douglas' nearly 50 years of combined experience in the industry and you'll see why Aldrich Guest House was voted among the Top 15 bed and breakfasts in the United States. Built in 1845, Aldrich Guest House was constructed by 3 separate congressmen over the course of 17 years and was host to both Ulysses S. Grant and Abraham Lincoln who were friends of the original builders. Today we look forward to welcoming you with elegant and livable decor, award-winning homemade food, and a unique style of service that is personal and intuitive yet unobtrusive. Welcome to the next generation of bed and breakfasts.
