I would highly recommend I love Bed and Breakfasts. I love this one in particular. It is a very well maintained, original home. It has a friendly vibe if you will. The rooms are spacious, clean and had special touches such as robes, slippers, and bubble bath. Pat is gracious with southern hospitality at its best. There was complementary wine... More

Wow! You thought of everything! It makes me feel so good when guests notice how we try to think of all the amenities and atmosphere we have. The staff loves hearing about themselves in the reviews. Yes, our ghosts ( we are fortunate enough to have more than one) are delightful and friendly. Every good bnb has a ghost or... More

Where do I start? The place is absolutely charming and historic and the service was superb. We stayed in the Blue Room, which according to some articles is the epicenter of some haunting a at this charming B&B. However, we did not get any activity at all. We did however wake up to the best breakfast I've had this far... More
