Perched on top of a perfectly landscaped and manicured 3 acre parcel, sits a beautifully restored 1900 home with the charm of a time gone by. The September weather was perfect and the garden was inviting as was the home and all of it's meticulously decorated rooms. I fell in love with each porch swing (there are 3 porches and 3 porch swings). Rocking to the sound of water fountains and birds chirping was my cup of tea. The rooms are all carefully and neatly decorated taken care of. I stayed in the Secret Garden room with my little 5 month old baby. it was perfect to have my own room with fireplace and bathroom, along with an adjoining room with two twin beds...perfect for a little nursery. The bathroom was darling, with the original sink from 1900, a claw foot tub and lovely vanity. The colors and feel of the room let you go back in time to a place where little girls ran through gardens, played leap frog & read stories under the shade of a tree. And having 2,3 and sometimes 4 windows in each room, brightens ones soul. All through the house, the feel is relaxing and inviting. The owner and hostess were very accommodating and happy to let me linger at the home the next day and soak in the peace and inspiration it brought. You will not be disappointed with your stay at Sandes of Time B&B. You won't want to leave!
