Our second stay here and was not disappointed. Very friendly owners and wonderful accommodations. We will be back.

Charming restored church. The advertisement for this property didn't do it justice. Will certainly return next time we're in the area.

I was disappointed that recycling bins weren't available for water bottles and aluminum cans. Breakfast was a bit disappointing but then I understand since there isn't a fully functioning kitchen. Other than that, it was a lovely place to stay.

Loved the unique location Quiet Friendly owner......

Beautiful old church fully restored into a bnb. Stained glass accents and lots of tlc went i to this place. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

The McGrady Inn was built as a church in the early 1920s and was lovingly restored as an inn a few years ago. The rooms are a little small and plain, but they're comfortable and the rest of the inn more than makes up for it. The kitchen area is modern and well-equipped, the TV area has comfortable furniture and a 50" television, and other sitting areas are comfortable, with lots of natural light from the windows all around the building. Breakfast is continental, but that's OK--my wife and I usually just eat fruit and yogurt in the morning anyway. It's a quiet, relaxing place to stay, and we're really glad we chose the McGrady Inn over the other local hotel/motel chains.

Thanks for the 5 stars, but 'm so sorry that you were disappointed in the breakfast. I go over the breakfast options when you arrive and it is on our website as well. We don't have a food license because it requires us to have a totally separate kitchen and we just don't have the room to put in an additional kitchen. We are just a small Inn that serves a continental breakfast for those who choose to have breakfast. We have found that most people just want the coffee.
