We enjoyed all the nooks and crannies of this magnificent old historical mansion. A great change from staying in hotels and motels. We got to meet and visit with people from around the world over 5 stars breakfasts prepared by our accommodating hosts. With limited guests it almost feels like you have the whole place to yourself. The grounds are...

We had the pleasure of staying here mid July. The home is wonderful in it's authenticity. The basement is simply meant to be enjoyed. Our room was perfect in both size and decor.

We have stayed here three times and will go back again. It is so much more than a hotel. Staff are very helpful, breakfast was super and small things like the use of local coffee roasters and soap makers pleased us. We loved the huge pool, the unique gardens and the special history of the place.

Exquisite! From the moment we arrived Michelle and Mark made this stately mansion feel like home. They were available to answer any questions we had and ensure that our stay, from beginning to end, was seamless and relaxing. We had the opportunity to meet the owner, Brett, and he also engaged us with stories of the mansions history; it was...

We had a wonderful experience at the Blaylock Mansion. Our hosts Michelle and Mark were not only gracious but warm, welcoming and hilarious, not to mention Michelle is a phenomenal cook. I can not say enough great things about our stay at the mansion. The house is beautiful and filled with original pieces of furniture, the garden is breathtaking. We...

We rented out Blaylock Mansion for our wedding and the venue was spectacular!! The property's secret garden style was absolutely perfect for our wedding. Everyone had an amazing time and we can't wait to come back for our anniversary :)

My partner and I stayed at Blaylock's in late July and I was so excited because the pictures on the website looked amazing. We were not disappointed! Hosts Mark and Michelle made our stay extra wonderful, with late night fireside chats by the pool and homemade eggs benny in the morning. I loved getting a personal tour of the home,...

A couple of years ago we enjoyed an autumn stay at the mansion and while we had a wonderful time we were curious about the gardens in summer. The water features are quite lovely and when you take the time to read some of the information regarding their engineering and the history of the place it is simply fascinating. Both...

Thanks for staying with us and your positive comments. Even 10 yrs later it is still a bit surreal to spend time here. We are even thinking of hosting some "Downton Abbey" themed weekends, dressing the part, and really pampering our guests!

Enjoyed our stay at Blaylock. New managers are great and very helpful with suggestions and reservations. Can't believe how friendly they are! The tennis court was recently cleaned and we enjoyed playing with some of the other guests. The grounds were amazing. Breakfast was delicious. Rooms are very clean and comfortable.
