A note about Minerva’s rates: We strive to achieve a fine balance: aiming to keep our rates modest, so that working families can afford their much-needed vacations, while taking pride in our commitment to meticulous housekeeping, and to hearty breakfasts comprised of healthful, high-quality ingredients—and neither of those things comes cheap! We accomplish our goals by competitive compensation to our dedicated and talented assistants, by careful budgeting, by limiting the owner’s salary to a VERY modest sum, and-- from time to time—by offering  “specials.”  We believe that once you have experienced Minerva’s hospitality, you will agree that we offer a good value.


  • We require a three night minimum stay on weekends in July and August, and on holiday weekends. There may be a two-night minimum on some other weekends. Special rates on Mondays and Tuesdays June-September.
