I needed to find a place to stay over night in Marriana,Fl.. I was stopping there in route to Foley Al. to visit my family and be with my sister in Pensacola for her operation. It was the perfect halfway point in between Jacksonville, and Foley, perfect to break that trip up nicely and ensure I arrive at My sisters the next day clearminded, well rested and serene. I am so glad I chose this beutiful place to do that! I arrived to The Hinson House in the early evening, and was so pleasantly surprised at how ADORABLE this place is, not just the structure (wich is gorgeous) and GLEAMING antiques.... the people were so warm and sweet and the house smells of fresh baked cookies. I stayed in a room called the ' Sleeping Porch'. It was the most tranquil and comfortable room ever, and the bed was fantastic (high quality linens, sofffft and cool =]) Everything was IMACULATELY clean. I enjoyed just relaxing on the pretty front porch, sitting on the big comfy swing and winding down.. you are welcome to have whatever you like to drink and they have homade cookies to enjoy.. Guests are even offered a nice glass of wine if they like. You have plenty of privacy in the rooms (private baths come with). I took bunches of pictures of this lovely home, I had a really nice time there. I slept so well there, and the next morning, I was served this delicious breakfast, with fresh fruit and all the juice and coffee I wanted. The couple who own and run this B & B are extremely nice and really go the extra mile to make sure everyone is enjoying thier stay and have anything they need. The best part was the price. I researched the hotels in that area and they ran equal and some places even more $ than there, and with my AAA card I got a discount too. I spent less IMO than I would have on a cold so-so hotel room and nowhere NEAR the extras and ambiance (and value) as this place. If you get an opportunity to stay there, do it. You'll spend about as much as or even less than the local hotels. I HIGHLY recommend it. Christina
