Inn at Norton Hill – Bed and Breakfast

Why just come for breakfast (and have to get up early to do so) when you can just stay at our Inn?  It’s a beautiful place with three interesting and comfortable rooms and it’s right across the street!  You, too can live in the 19th century (or further back) without having to actually move here!   Follow this link and go to the website and then call us.   Nightly rates include full breakfast Elmer’s!
