Brandon Hall Plantation was the first B&B my husband and I have ever visited. When doing research on where to stay, Brandon Hall's website was by far the most beautiful and comprehensive website. We fell in love with the beautiful pictures and knew we had to visit this historic estate. When I checked Trip Advisor, the review titled "a true disappointment!" almost scared me off until I realized how ridiculous this review was. I found it humorous that this customer honestly thought Mike, Brandon Hall's server, should come in at 6:30 a.m. to accommodate one couple. As I read on, it appeared that this angry customer was looking for unkind things to say about this business. So that I was comfortable with my assumption, I decided to call Brandon Hall and talk to Rachel about this situation before I made my reservation. She did recall this guest and she was very professional in her statement to the review. I knew this was just one of those customers you can't ever please. Rachel explained to me this is her parents’ vacation home and her family enjoys sharing it with the world. I found it ironic that this guest could be so inconsiderate to such a gracious family. Needless to say, our suite was absolutely beautifully decorated and immaculate. The antiques and decor are fabulous...the pictures on the website prove this place is absolutely beautifully decorated. There is no musky smell and Rachel and the staff are more than accommodating. The breakfast is delicious and it is worth setting aside a morning to take the guided tour. We cannot wait to return for another visit! For our anniversary next year, we are planning to take Brandon Hall's hot air balloon ride!
