Stayed overnight at Windover B and B this week, our second visit to this beautiful old home. Jen and Glen are excellent innkeepers -- always friendly, helpful, and caring. Their home is immaculate with comfy beds, quiet surroundings, and superior breakfast. On this Friday morning, we had raspberry swirl yogurt, frittatas (with vegetables and herbs fresh from the garden), ham steak, and muffins. Yummy! Jen even remembered that I am not a coffee drinker and brought juice and ice water without my reminding her! The front porch is a great spot to enjoy an afternoon beverage, the ever-present mountain breeze, and a home-made cookie or cheese wafer, compliments of the house. If a walk around the grounds is on your agenda, you will love the well-kept flower beds and pathways through the garden. The only minus for this always-wonderful place is that guests do not have a view of the mountains, and getting to the house means driving through a working-class neighborhood that is a bit untidy--both of which are completely out of the control of the owners of Windover. You will not be disappointed if you choose to stay here. We love it and will return as soon as we possibly can.
