We had the opportunity to stay in this lovely B&B and so enjoyed our time there! We stayed in The Mockingbird Room and it was wonderful! In addition to the bedroom and bath, there was a sitting room with fireplace. Right outside of the door was an outdoor terrace with comfortable seating and a fan!!! The location is so convenient...

We stayed here in 2014. First time at any B & B. It was WONDERFUL!!! Short walk to the Riverwalk and is located in a beautiful neighborhood. Our room was the Cardinal Room. Very beautiful decor, comfortable claw foot tub and all the 'little things' like candies and sherry with two glasses. So pleased we are able to stay again... More

Two rooms (plus the bathroom), so plenty of space. Comfy bed. The little kitchen is great for making coffee and storing leftovers and wine (there were even... More

My husband and I have nothing but nice things to say about this place! We stayed here for our honeymoon, and between the complimentary champagne, freshly baked cookies, and Lily's hospitality, we were not disappointed with our choice! The rooms themselves are a good size: comfortable, clean, and furnished with neat old antiques. The house is a short walk from... More
