My son and I enjoyed a peaceful 2 night stay in this gorgeous B & B, conveniently located close to campus. Parking was easy, and we loved our room and view (we stayed in The Monet Room), but all of the room options are lovely. Donna and Lee were superlative hosts, and breakfast was both beautiful and delicious each morning....

Avalyn Garden is one of our best B and B experiences! Gracious hosts, well appointed and comfortable room, quiet surroundings. Our three night stay while we were moving exceeded our expectations, the owners were attentive to all our needs. Breakfasts were generous and delicious.
