I have stayed in many B&Bs but this is by far the nicest and most welcoming. The proprietors Diane and Michele have created something special in this little gem across from the Vanderbilt Mansion. From the very first phone call, the warmth of their hospitality was apparent and the photos on this site don't even begin to capture how charming the house is. My boyfriend and I stayed in the Kyoto Room, which has a sense of Zen tranquility especially at night when the crickets chirp outside. The 8:30 am breakfasts are early but creative and delicious and get you up and out to enjoy the many sights to see in the area (the strong coffee helps, too!). Our room did not have TV but we did not miss it; the complimentary Wifi is strong and fast. Coffee, tea, and delicious home-baked cookies are available if you want a snack and there are plenty of interesting books on the area and the places the hosts have visited to enjoy. The prices are more than reasonable and the location is very convenient. I love this inn and look forward to coming back in the future.
