From the moment we went in the back door into the kitchen I was hooked. The wonderful smells and the amazing staff swept you away and made you fell like you just stepped back in time. I have never done a review, that is how much I loved this place. I had to share so no one would miss the... More

Very relaxing and comfortable! Felt right at home from the moment we checked in. What hotel greets you with a glass of champagne on arrival? You get very spoiled with the delicious sweet treats and tea in the early afternoon, the hor d'oeuvres served before the dinner hour, and then the most amazing homemade pies when you come back from...

You feel like Scarlett in Rhett's house...from the curved stairs leading to the veranda, entering the well appointed, gracious main floors, and arriving at a large and beautifully decorated guest room. The hosts could not have been more gracious. Champagne appears on arrival, iced tea, lemonade and cookies are offered in the afternoon, and decadent desserts in the evening. There... More

What a nice gesture to include a fine bottle of champagne on our room to celebrate our anniversary. The next night, my bifthday, we were greeted with chocolate cupcakes for dessert after dinner. Try to stay in room 10, with private balcony.

My mom, sister and I stayed at the inn last week. I would say the stay was overall disappointing. When we arrived, we had to ask 3 times for assistance with our luggage and never did receive the orientation on the services of the inn. The rooms downstairs are cold and damp and I am still recovering from a very... More
