Sunflowers Indicate An Inn "Extraordinaire"

   A sunflower identifies an inn esteemed, by The INNside Scoop, as exceptional and in the topechelon of "The Editor's Favorites" (***) category.  The selection of a "sunflower inn" is based upon comparisons to similar type inns (considering inn's hospitality, size, style, location, value, "feel" of inn, accuracy in marketing, etc).  Only inns experienced, by the editor, since the beginning of 2001 have been considered for this special recognition.  The sunflower was chosen to honor the memory of the editor's daughter, Celia (www.the-innside-scoop.com/Celia.htm).
   See page 2 for a key to the ratings (and criteria upon which evaluations are based) of inns by The INNside Scoop.
