Our Newest Amenity: EV Charging!

The Historic Smithton Inn is thrilled to offer a new and unique amenity to our guests… EV Charging! In the spring of 2015 we had two Electric Vehicle Chargers installed, one an 80 amp Tesla Charger, the other a 32 amp Clipper Creek Universal Charger. Charging is available to the public; it is offered free of charge to guests of the Inn, or for $15/charge to non-guests, who can relax in our sitting room and enjoy our flat-screen TV or access to Wi-Fi while their vehicle charges.

Considering the age of our property (over 250 years!), we think it’s pretty neat to be offering such a cutting-edge service to guests… but then again, it just makes sense. In the 1700s, we imagined that the innkeepers would provide hay, water and shelter for the horses of guests staying at the then-named “Henry Miller Tavern”. So providing well-lit, off-street parking and EV charging for guests is just a modern evolution of a tradition of hospitality that’s been well established at the Historic Smithton Inn.
