Guests truly experience life as a wealthy person 120 years ago.
Don Martine has been interested in MG’s since his dad purchased a 1949 MGTC in 1950. Don worked on the car and drove the vehicle during his high school years. Since then, he has restored, raced, shown and accumulated quite a few vintage MG’s. Five or more vehicles are usually on display at the inn for guests viewing including old gas pumps, posters and equipment.
