What a gem! The room was comfortable and the shared bathroom was no problem. Breakfast was delicious. Jordan and Andrew are very welcoming and helpful with local attractions. I stayed five nights and will stay here when I'm again in this area.

I've never stayed in a bed and breakfast type place before, and highly enjoyed it. I went on a personal vacation and likely stayed out of season, as I had the place to myself. The building is old, wood fired and charming. (note to those staying in winter, I doubt the place has modern heating so give it time to warm) The old wood stove was very comforting, and I liked reading the books on local history. The place reminded me of my grandparents, but in a good way. The hosts were very attentive and pleasant to talk to. In the morning I got a home-served breakfast burrito and it was great.

This has been an inn since the 1880s, so, unlike other places that try to cash in on fake Victorian charm, the Mine Shaft Inn is the real thing, small, quaint, quirky, with excellent service, and very dog-friendly. The rooms vary in size, and the upstairs accommodations share a bathroom. There are also large and nicely appointed common areas downstairs - dining room, tea room, kitchen. Jorden and Andy, you are doing a great job running the place!
