We arrived the night before Thanksgiving and stayed for the holiday and no one informed us that the hotel was CLOSED for the holiday!

We are quite certain that you were told we were closed on Thanksgiving Day as that is why we offered a reduced rate for that day. Sorry if the wires got crossed. It was not our intention to mislead you or cause you any inconvenience. We are also quite certain that you were provided with plenty of clean towels. As... More

We came here on a living social deal which was a great package. We stayed in Suite 14 on the third floor overlooking historic Jackson Street. It was comfortable and clean with beautiful antique furniture. Although the bedroom was a little small, it had a nice large bathroom. For those not in good physical condition, climbing the steep steps with... More

We stayed here at the beginning of Oct. 2013 which turned out to be awesome weather. The B&B/hotel is very charming. The room was beautiful. Unfortunately the bed was a little firm for my liking so I didn't sleep too well. The food at the Mad Batter restaurant was fabulous. If we stayed again I'd try a different room or... More

I have stayed at Carroll Villa for contemplative weekend trips, workshops, and with my family.

Very charming B&B. Great central location. Nice extras (wine in room, winery tastings, free breakfast). Didn't eat at Mad Batter as the Fall menu wasn't exciting to us, but loved the breakfast! The service and friendliness of staff made it a very nice visit. Room was charming and clean. Definitely a great place to stay!
