“Great Escape”
Reviewed April 6, 2012

My husband and I decided to escape the hectic city of Atlanta and spend a few days relaxing in a quiet part of Alabama. We chose the Mistletoe Bough in Alexander City because of its proximity to Lake Martin, a recreational lake we had wanted to explore for some time. What a pleasant surprise our B & B experience turned out to be! We have traveled extensively in Great Britain and New England while staying in family inns, and have never enjoyed so much charm and personality as JoAnne provides at the M.B. Inn. The lemon yellow Victorian mansion complete with turreted front sitting porch was full of history. The rooms were spacious with luxurious beds and antique furnishings. Breakfasts were scrumptious. One morning blue berry pancakes, the next sausage hash brown bake served on eclectic personal china complete with fresh fruit with fresh mint embellishments. The M.B. is more than just a place to stay for the night - it is the quintessential "get away from it all" experience. Nearby Lake Martin is a large clean lake with unlimited recreational opportunities. We brought our kayaks and paddled all day observing wildlife and beautiful lake side homes. Who would guess that so much relaxation and charm was within a few hours of Atlanta?

Room Tip: We loved the large Master suite.

We were guests of JoAnn & Jessie for three days and two nights and were treated to a wonderful time. We felt that we were family for the way we were treated by our hosts. We stayed in the Master Suite and it was beautiful and the home was sparkling clean and very welcoming. We were visiting Auburn, which is only 30 or so miles away. Next time we go down to the school, we will certainly return.

Room Tip: All the rooms are nice and roomy.

My husband and I were given a weekend stay at the Mistletoe Bough Bed and Breakfast for our 20th anniversary. Our visit was absolutely beautiful from the accomodations to the inn keeper, Ms. Joann!! I was smitten with her magnificent home and all of her antiques. We stayed in THE most beautiful room at the inn--the Master Suite! Ms. Joann was precious, and we enjoyed visiting with her throughout the weekend. She is a wonderful cook and a charming hostess. We hope to go back this summer and take a ride on the lake.

Room Tip: The Sunshine Room would be my 2nd choice!

My fiance and I visited the Mistletoe Bough as a post-Valentine's Day treat. Upon arrival, Joann greeted us warmly, gave us a tour of the house, and showed us to our lovely room (we stayed in the Sunshine Room). The wood detailing of the house itself if simply beautiful. My fiance and I felt instant relaxation and even commented to each other that we've never felt so welcomed in anyone's home before. We wandered into the kitchen on our first night for a late-night snack (hot tea and lemon pound cake - yum) and ended up chatting with Joann and her friend Jerry... they were a blast to talk to! There is absolutely nothing bad I can say about the Mistletoe Bough. The house was seriously spotless, bed was comfy, breakfast was fabulous, and everyone we met at the B&B was so fun to talk to. A big thank you to Joann for making our mini getaway so special!

Room Tip: The Sunshine Room really lives up to its name. This room gets a lot of natural sunlight, which we l...

Wonderfully quaint Victorian B & B. Everything you would want in a B&B: Clean, cozy, quiet, comfortable beds, beautiful antique decor. JoAnn serves a delicious breakfast. Gourmet coffee on demand. Yummy cookies waiting on us when we got back after dinner. We felt thoroughly pampered!

Room Tip: Rooms book early on Auburn home game weekends.

We have been going to the Mistletoe Bough Bed and Breakfast for years and it has always been the most welcoming home away from home we have ever been to. You are treated like royalty, really made to feel very special. Joann & Jesse the Inn Keepers are the most precious people you would ever want to meet. The food is exceptional and the rooms are always clean and well stocked. We have traveled several different countries and we always choose a B&B if available. Mistletoe is by far my favorite!

We stayed at the Mistletoe Bough B & B for one night while looking at property on Lake Martin.
What a wonderfu B & B. The home is charming with great large rooms. JoAnn is such a wonderful hostess and cook. She showed us around the house when we arrived, giving us a history of the home. She provided us with some great suggestions for dinner that evening and even made us a hot fudge sunday when we got back from dinner. We slept soundly in one of the lovely bedrooms on the second floor. JoAnn cooked us a delicious breakast in the morning and even took time out to sit with us and chat. The value for your $$ at this B & B is great. No question that if we are back in this area again, we will be staying at the Mistletoe Bough B & B. Thanks JoAnn for a great time!!
