Today, turn-of-the-century retreat offers deluxe accommodations in the form of beautifully appointed guest rooms and suites, first-class amenities and guest services, including a free shuttle bus and bicycles for hire, and warm and welcoming hospitality. The elegantly restored 1909 apartment building in which the inn is housed is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the only one in Springfield.
