So I was expecting a nice B&B since my travel companion (former college roommate) has good friends who stay at Johnson's Country Inn every year for their engagement anniversary. But what we experienced was so far above and beyond the normal B&B experience! First Joan and David are delightful hosts who could not be more friendly. On both mornings of our stay, they joined us for breakfast. Speaking of breakfast, it was delicious on both mornings. On our first morning, they served a poached pear, followed by oatmeal pancakes and bacon. The second morning, we had a delicious egg casserole with potatoes, scones, multigrain bread, and fruit. We were also offered delicious orange juice on both days, along with copious amount of coffee.
The room was gorgeous and huge. We stayed in the downstairs French Country room (can't remember the exact name). The only downside was that it is next to the kitchen, so if you're a light sleeper, you might hear them preparing breakfast.
One thing I've never seen before is the selection of several wines and liqueurs for their guests to help themselves to 24/7. They even had some additional liqueur upstairs for the upstairs rooms. I discovered a chocolate wine, Choco Noir, which was one of their offerings. I'm hooked on it now. Had to swing by a Raley's in CA before heading home to pick up a bottle of it to take home.
I could go on and on but suffice it to say that this is a delightful, magical place to stay. I felt like I'd been visiting family but without the stresses and tensions of family dynamics. :-) I highly recommend Johnson's Country Inn!
