The hosts provided transportation, a highly educated tour, amazing (large) breakfast and friendly conversation throughout our stay. Several seating areas on the property were perfect for morning, afternoon and evening conversation. The Inn's location is perfect in town. Just off the main path but walking distance anywhere you desire.
Our luxurious room (Virginia's Room) came with plenty of space, comfortable sitting and a phenomenal bathroom. The bathroom alone was worth the stay.
Southport is a city with plenty to experience nestled into a quaint, modern fairytale. It's quiet. It's historical. It will enchant you.
