From lively, Civil War-themed décor to lavish, lovingly-made breakfasts, this was the best of the B&Bs we've visited. Joanne & Paul worked hard to make their guests happy and comfortable, but made it seem effortless. Always homemade cookies in the dining room and breakfast recipes from Better Homes and Gardens (or possibly Southern Living). The grounds and garden were at... More

The room was very nice with a private entrance and a patio. This was nice! My husband had a place to smoke his cigar without bothering me or anyone else. The owner is extremely knowledgable about the inn and the area. We will stay here again.
