Our stay was perfect from the time Vickie opened the front door until the time we drove away! The House was exquisite. We stayed in the Jennifer and couldn't have been more pleased. The accommodations were perfect. The bed, very comfortable and the restroom, stocked with all the basic toiletries. Aside from Vickie being the perfect hostess and answering all...

My husband and I went for a quick weekend getaway. We really enjoyed our visit. Our stay at Cotton Palace was nothing less than amazing. Vicki welcomed us like we were family. She is the sweetest lady and had the best in-town suggestions. The B&B is beautiful and inviting. Breakfast was delicious and servings were more than I could eat....

Two female friends and I recently had a wonderful experience of staying at the Cotton Palace B&B. It was clean, well kept, large bathrooms, delicious breakfast and convenient to downtown. I am always skeptical about staying in some B&B's anymore. I am tired of the tiny old bathrooms. Cotton Palace has updated large bathrooms which was a plus. The new...

This is the very best experience I have had. Vickie was a lovely innkeeper and so warm and accommodating. She made our birthday reunion extra special. The Inn is warm and cozy. The house is gorgeous and beautifully appointed. Having Dutch serve us breakfast was a special treat! We hope to do this again and will plan to stay there...

This place is amazing. The food was even better and Dutch with his many hats. We took my sister for her birthday weekend. Had a great weekend. The house is gorgeous and the rooms were really nice. You can sit down in the leaving area and watch movies!

Ms. Becky is a wonderful host. I recently met her at an event and while I have not stayed at the Cotton Palace I cannot say enough about her. Any stay would be well worth it based on her hospitality and sweet disposition.

I will add my voice to the glowing reviews of this B&B. Our daughter got married and our whole family took over the place. Becky recommended a caterer and we brought food in so we could entertain family and friends the day of the wedding. The place is so comfortable and homey that I'm afraid we treated it too much...
