Our first stay at an B&B & it was so much more than what we expected!
HOSTS: Ann & Jerry are fabulous hosts. Very friendly, approachable, & accommodating. They were not only professional, but made you feel right at home! It is obvious that they love their home and what they do!! They felt like old friends. Each evening after going to dinner in one of the many wonderful restaurants, we would come back and enjoy drinks and lots of laughs with the hosts and other guests on the back porch. Very knowledgable about the home, town, things to do and restaurant recommendations. One of the service they provided that we really enjoyed was from their help named Justin. He would drive us downtown which was a only 2 minutes away, via golf cart. When we were ready to go back we paged him and he was there to get us immediately! He even took us on a tour of the town when we first arrived. We really enjoyed him and hope he is around when we return.
BREAKFAST: Ann is a great cook and the food was delicious and plentiful. I could never finish it! Eggs, meat, biscuits(2)/gravy, fresh fruit dish topped with whipped cream and cherry, and fresh squeezed orange juice that was out of this world delicious! Coffee was great as well.
ROOM: We stayed in the Browning room and it was GORGEOUS!! Spacious, clean, large comfy bed, large tub/walk in shower, robes, mini frig, tv hidden in armoire, fireplace, private porch w/rockers & swing; instead of entering through house we used the private porch to come and go. We toured the other rooms and they were all beautiful and inviting.
RESTAURANTS: You can't go wrong when it comes to dining! Ann made us reservations at Memories and More and we were greeted by the very friendly owner and seated near the piano at our reserved table. She really made us feel welcomed and as if we were old friends. The restaurant is upscale, but very relaxed and inviting.
SHOPPING: Endless shopping. So many shops from Antiques to the modern and the upscale. Their is something for everyone! Just browsing around at all the antiques was the best part!
We are already looking at the calendar and planning our next trip to the Claiborne House and this friendly town! We cannot wait to return!!
