About the Inn

Bed & Breakfast

This restored, turn of the century inn, dates back to 1884. At one time The Babcock House was the boyhood home of nationally known author, Dr. Havilah Babcock.

The inn features five bedrooms and one suite, all furnished with period antiques. You will truly feel you have taken a step back in time as you enter The Babcock House. All the rooms have private baths and cable television. Our inn has central air conditioning to insure your comfort.  Room rates include a full breakfast.

Relax in the evening on one of our verandas and enjoy the glorious setting and comfortable elegance of the Babcock House, while feeling as comfortable as you would at your own home.
