It's been almost a year since I stayed at the Virginia Rose Inn, but this B&B made such a lasting impression that we have already booked a return stay for our anniversary.
I booked this B&B for our wedding night last year. I am really picky about accomodations, especially with B&Bs which can sometimes be tacky or in a poor location. I had high hopes for this place, and wasn't disappointed - the Virginia Rose Inn had none of those problems whatsoever, and I was really touched by the kindness and personalized service of the innkeepers. When we arrived, I discovered they'd left a card for us in the room, congratulating us on our marriage, which was really sweet. They also helped me with having a few special little extras waiting for us in the room - chocolate covered strawberries and roses. They truly provided the perfect balance of being friendly without being overbearing. Though we are not the types to do this, I got the impression that if you are someone who likes to make friends with the innkeepers, they were very easy to talk to.
The Tranquility Suite was pretty, cozy, and in good repair. We were exhausted from the day's activities, so it was a wonderfully quiet respite for us. The location was an easy walking distance from the main downtown area, so we were able to just park the car and walk down the street for dinner and a carriage ride.
To top everything off, I am a huge fan of breakfast in bed, so I was very excited that they offered the option of having breakfast in the room. Breakfast was delicious and especially appreciated by me since I could enjoy it in my jammies. I am really looking forward to visiting this place again!
