5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2014

Had tea at the Silver Fountain Inn today and I could not be happier with our experience. From the original architectural details that flow through the entire property to the expansive tea assortment to the delicious menu to the pleasant conversation and care we received..we left planning our next visit.

If you are looking for more than a coffee shop or cafe atmosphere you will not be disappointed. I can well imagine that brides will be finding this as an excellent stay for bridal parties etc.

The innkeeper was more than willing to take the time to explain the rich history behind the home. If you do go be sure to ask why it is on “Silver Street”!
