“Wonderful but......”
Reviewed 22 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012
people found this review helpful

My friends and I stayed at the Old Orchard House (new inside) which is right next door to the Shriver House Museum. The Old Orchard House actually sits on the site of the Shriver's Orchard (hence the name and you can find out more about this by taking the Shrivers House Tour-highly recommended). The house itself is beautiful on the outside and in. So much so, that we have already booked it for a future stay in December 2012 for some holiday shopping. Joan, the owner of the Brafferton Inn (a nice B & B in town) came and let us in, showed us around and literally mapped out everything that was close by-THANKFULLY because I am very directionally challenged.The house has a small front porch and the only issues that we had while staying there were that people tend to hang out on the porch because they assume that its part of the museum. We had to literally ask people to move from the front porch so we could enter the home. Joan did say they were looking to put in a small sign to let the public know that it was in fact NOT part of the museum. The other issue, was that when people would walk on the streets they would look in the home,so we pulled the curtains closed after 8pm for privacy. Everything is clean and comfortable. There is a livingroom on the first floor (I do hope that they get more furniture because there was six of us and NOT enough seating to watch a movie-there was a lot of pillows and blankets on the floor), 1/2 bathroom, bedroom and kitchen. There is also a washer and dryer on this floor. The second floor has a small office space for laptop (there is FREE WiFi), one bedroom with a twin and full bed and another bedroom with a queen bed. The bedrooms do not have any closets nor do they have any dressers? Which I think is another small issue-I would like to see somewhere to put clothes while staying. There is a large bathroom on the top floor with a generous size tub/shower. The house does provide linens and towels. We were the 2nd people to stay there and the things I talked about wouldn't stop me (obviously) from staying again.
