This gem has no grand airs, just pure charm and contentment in a true neighborhood setting. Rooms vary in size, but all are a tasteful, unfussy, unpretentious mix of antiques, modernity, creature comforts, and thoughtful amenities. Linens are particuarly pretty, and an impressive gallery wall displays striking black-and-white photographs of local musicians—the work of one of the many repeat guests. The hosts bring in fresh baked breakfast pastries (even tastier in the pretty courtyard) and 25+ years of hospitality experience (they built the Chimes themselves). It shows in the caring details.
