We stayed at this fabulous B&B on the 26th of December for 1 night during our 3 weeks USA trip (sorry for the late review).
This is without a doubt one of the best B&B we've ever stayed in; whoever ask us about our 3 weeks trip highlight, the Historic Oak Hill Inn is part of our answer.
It's also really good value for what you get.
We stayed in the downstairs bedroom, which is absolutely stunning; it felt like we were back in time of "gone with the wind" but with all the mod cons of today. The bed itself is outstanding, and very comfy with a memory foam mattress.
The room is very quiet and very spacious indeed, and so is the beautiful en suite bathroom.
We loved the house; we were given a tour of this beautiful Inn and frankly, it was better than the tour we got from one of the famous antebellum in town!
The fact that a lot of the antiques are part of Doug's family makes it so personal, we really enjoyed it. It was very interesting and such a beautiful collection!
The breakfast room with the beautiful porcelain collection was special.
Doug & Don were the perfect hosts. As soon as we arrived, we felt welcome. There was a cookie jar (yummy!!!) and we were offered a lovely glass of pinot noir, which we later enjoyed in the library with the other guests.
I like the fact that the owners are so proud of their home, and so they should be, as they worked so hard on it...and it shows.
Very friendly service, very knowledgeable, I could have talked to them all day about the history of the place!
The Best breakfast we have ever had in a B&B!!! the fact it is served in original 1800's plates and silver cutlery somehow makes it special too.
But the food...we had eggs benedict, which frankly were the best I've tasted, pecan bread pudding souffle, and a lovely strawberry fruit salad. It was fresh & very tasty indeed. Just perfect!
So thank you Doug & Don for having such a beautiful Inn, it was definitely worth the overnight trip from New Orleans, and we hope to see you on our next trip to this part of the world.
