As one of the oldest operating hotels in America, the Grafton Inn is appointed with period antiques throughout and has been painstakingly restored, offering every modern amenity. The historic inn offers 45 rooms, including seven luxury suites and four guest houses, all with private bathrooms and sitting areas.
