We picked this B&B because we were visiting my sister, who lived in the neighborhood. Nancy and Jason were great hosts — warm, affable, helpful — and struck the appropriate balance between engaging conversation and privacy.
The rooms were very comfortable, and the location is superb — blocks away from all the terrific eateries and shops along Piedmont Ave.
The breakfasts were plentiful and tasty and tailored to our dietary requests. (And ginger syrup for the french toast — yum!)
We will stay here again.
