This place is magical, to say the least. I found myself constantly taking pictures as everywhere I looked there was beautiful detail after beautiful detail of this historic B&B. I have posted only a few of these pictures, but wish I could share them all.
This is a working ranch. When we pulled up, we were welcomed by an old stone fence, spanish moss trees, and two beautiful horses. We parked our car and walked through a lovely white terrace with pink flowers drapped over it. The lady checking us in was very sweet and accomodating. The ranch house is historic and charming, older, but very clean. The wrap around porches, both upper and lower are white washed with white wicker chairs. The community table is beautifully set at all hours of the day. There was a fire in the fireplace one night in the community living room. The house is surronded by beautiful gardens and a white picket fence. There is a large hammock in the side yard and really nice tennis courts. Behind the house is a matching yellow barn, more horses, and a road that leads you to a country road for a secluded hike through the spanish moss covered trees and old vineyards.
We were in room number five on the front corner. It had french doors that opened onto the side garden. We felt like we might have had the most privacy of all the rooms, except the cottage. The queen bed was very comfortable and the linens were fresh. Good size for two people. The bathroom was very clean and the little changing room connected was a good size. The ONLY criticism of the room is that the bathtub/shower could use an update with updated fixtures. The shutters on the windows added to the charm.
The breakfast: We stayed for two nights so were lucky enough to have two breakfasts. They were both VERY good. One was a quiche-like dish with goat cheese and asparagus, sausage (unlike any I have had before), two heartshaped cornbread toasts with jam and fresh fruit. (Pictured). The second was a really tasty breakfast burrito with pico de gallo and avacoda salsa with a bowl of fresh fruit. We decided to eat both breakfasts on the front porch despite the rainy/cold weather. The view was just too good to miss.
Misc: Other things that made our visit so special was the cookie jar in the kitchen - filled with the BEST homemade chocolate chip cookies that you could grab at any time; the wifi service was free, good and easy to use; the ranch produces its own sauvignon blanc wine and it is worth taking home; it rained most of the time we were there and the place was so good that we didn't even mind it.
