For those truly seeking a place to unplug from modern day life, the Celo Inn is a great option. It has been described as a “beautifully basic place” where the windows are often open to the sounds of the Toe River rippling by.
People who come here do so for the peace, serenity and gardens on property. There are no TVs, air-conditioning or Wi-Fi. Cell phone service is spotty. The original owners built the house by hand over the course of 10 years. It has details borrowed from European hostels and inns — cozy dormered nooks, exposed framing timbers, burnished wood and soft tile.
There are five guest rooms and one two-bedroom cottage. Some of the guest rooms have attached bathrooms, while others have bathrooms across the hall. A hearty breakfast is served daily. Note: cash and checks only; no credit cards.
