Loved the Sweet Cane Inn! We were there for the Christmas Light Festival and could not have picked a better place to stay. The Owners, John & Kathy Richmond are masters at the bed & breakfast ideal. The house is warm and cozy. Spotless and so comfortable. There are main areas that guests are welcome to relax in as well. The rooms are tastefully decorated and do not look like your grandma's bedroom as in some b&bs (sorry Grandma). Beds & linens are plush and soft. Bathrooms are modern and clean. Parking on site. Convenient walk to everything in the town and an easy drive to the outer plantation site. Breakfast is a hot, freshly cooked meal served buffet style and there is a "happy hour" in the afternoon with wine & pastries. The day we left, we had to leave prior to breakfast being ready and the owner made us a wonderful hot meal prior to departure. The perfect host.
