We were very impressed with the landscaping around this home which covers most of a block; it's enjoyable to linger outdoors. Shirley gave us a delightful tour after breakfast which added greatly to our appreciation of the beautiful, historic home. Breakfast was good. You will stay in one of four large rooms in a newer guesthouse. Bed was lovely and comfortable; the bathroom could have been a lot better - very little space to put your belongings. When we turned off the a.c.., the room smelled musty, so we kept it blasting. Beware if you are in the Lady Bird suite - outside seating for smokers is right outside your front window. We're not smokers so we didn't like the cloud of smoke as we walked in or out, but I guess if you smoke it's a plus. A beautifully decorated, lit Christmas tree welcomed us to the room.There were pluses and minuses but overall it was a positive experience.
