Penny is a most gracious hostess, and her poochie pal B.J. is a darling. Upon our arrival, we were greeted with wine and treats on the screen porch, just the norm for Sat. nights at the Octagon House! We laughed and talked with the other guests for a couple hours, and then had a lovely, private stay until breakfast the next morning, when we rejoined the group for a delicious meal. Penny shared much about the local history, and the importance of the house and family who once lived there. Our room was comfortable, and we really enjoyed our stay. Great location to walk around downtown, too.
