'Tales of Tynne Inn'

Tynne Tucker Inn was originally the Tucker Cottage, built by the renowned Tucker family during the 1800's. The Tuckers' guests such as President Grant made this the location to be. Now condos, Tynne Tucker Inn has became part of the 'Tynne Inn' family of quaint vacation homes.
