My husband and I recently stayed at the Governor's Trace B&B and I must say it was top-notch! The website pictures did not do this place justice~it was much more than we expected! We stayed in the Alexander Spotswood room. The room featured a wood-burning fireplace that was all set up and ready to go (& had additional wood there for us to use) and a huge bathroom. The bathroom featured a large walk-in shower and was immaculate. The room was appointed with Sue's collection of brass tavern plates and other colonial decor. We especially enjoyed the lanterns above the fireplace, they really gave a romantic glow to the room. We enjoyed breakfast in our room (and we could choose between a later time or earlier time) and it was delicious. There was no TV which we also liked, we could truly relax and enjoy each other's company. The B&B was literally a 2 minute walk to Christiana Campbell's Tavern and the Capital bus stop in the historic area. We parked the car and didn't use it until it was time to leave. Dick also gave us some recommendations on where to go for dinner and sites to visit. They also helped us take a photo on their stairs for our Christmas card photo this year. We highly recommend this place to someone looking for a quiet respite but not too far away from the action. Very romantic and we hope to visit again soon.
