The Longwood University Bed and Breakfast was built is 1880 and served as the residence for the local universities' Presidents for 80 years. Now it is an open to the public B&B with six rooms that have been remodeled to include fresh modern amenities, private baths, and historic antiques. There is no live in proprietor, but you will be greeted with a plate of brownies in the foyer, self service coffee, and access to the kitchen for glassware and ice. The morning breakfast was served in the dining room and included wonderful french toast, bacon and fresh strawberries. The property is walking distance to downtown furniture shopping and my favorite restaurant in the area, Charley's Waterfront Cafe. Highly recommended.
