The room was big and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom could do with a little bit of updating but it was fine. The food was excellent and varied in the morning. You cannot leave the place hungry! The best were the hosts. They are friendly and tell you a lot about the area and the building. Genuinely nice...

Thank you for the nice review. We have just finished putting all new custom tile work around our Jacuzzi tub and rain-head shower enclosures, as well as fresh paint in the living rooms, bedrooms and a new custom backsplash behind the Corian kitchen countertops. I know you will love the new additions. Thank you for the compliments.

The place was great clean, comfortable and affordable. Beautiful scenery and a quaint southern town. Beautiful just beautiful.. A lot to do if you like the outdoors. They are pet friendly a must for my family. I would go again. Ed the innkeeper makes you feel welcome and wants you to have a special time. Just a great place.

Enjoyed our first trip to the Calhoun House Inn & Suites. This is different than the Calhoun House on Everette Street, so be sure you know which one you are looking at. This one is on Bryson Avenue. Four uniquely decorated suites in a historic 1920's era hotel. All have a bedroom, a den and a full kitchen (three rooms),...

Thank you for pointing out that important distinction, as this building was built and named the Calhoun House in 1920 by William Calhoun and his wife NoraLee. It has always carried the Calhoun House name, thru 3 owners (yes, we are only the third owners), for almost 100 years. We offer much more than a traditional Bed & Breakfast in...

Title says it all and this is the first review I've ever submitted. Great accommodation, fabulous owners and wonderful location. We stayed in the Movie suite which was more than enough room for a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 small kids). Additionally, we loved the theme element and definitely need to find out where they procured some of the...

What a treat to stay in the Movie Gallery Suite of the Calhoun House & Suites. My husband and I fell in love with the cozy, comfortable, four room suite, decorated in a movie gallery theme. Vintage posters including "I Love Lucy", "Wizard of Oz", and "Casablanca" transport guests back to the "Golden Era" of Hollywood movies. Much to my...

The suites at the Calhoun House are unusual in that each one has a different theme. Our suite had a movie theme with vintage movie posters, pictures and a display of camera and projector equipment. This may sound strange but was actually very interesting. The suite was extremely clean, had a complete kitchen with a refrigerator stocked with breakfast bagels,...
