This antebellum home is painstakingly restored and the hosts are particularly attentive to details -- warmed mugs to prevent lukewarm coffee, super-soft sheets and a power strip dedicated for charging phones in clear view so phone chargers aren't left behind. Susan told us the house history (fascinating) and gave us some helpful sightseeing tips, along with a map to restaurants, complete with the names of owners. We were here to see President Carter in neighboring Plains and Susan accommodated us with a slightly earlier than advertised breakfast so that we could make Sunday school by 9 a.m., which was plenty of time. She said that she and her husband studied what works and what doesn't at other B&Bs before buying theirs, and this is evident. We felt pampered. Breakfast is a hearty and delicious meal. Chocolate chip scones were wrapped and saved for an after-church tasty snack.
