My husband and I just returned from a long weekend in Abingdon, where we spent two delightful nights at the White Birches Inn. Owners Paulette and Mike got our theatre tickets for us, had a walking tour map waiting for us with their recommendations for sightseeing, and answered all our questions about the area. We stayed in the lovely George Bernard Shaw Room. The bed was so comfortable, the room temp was just right. There were cookies and candy waiting for us. My husband liked the shower and I poached happily in the deep spa tub. We loved having the complementary refrigerator in the living room not too far from The Shaw Room. So handy! Although four of the five guest rooms were occupied, the beautiful inn was nice and quiet for our much anticipated and restful weekend. I can't decide what we liked the best about White Birches -- the helpfulness of our hosts; the fabulous and magical garden; the garden room for reading, a glass of wine and conversation; the candlelit gourmet breakfasts, where guests lingerd afterward for chatting and coffee. Just walking around the house and looking at the lovely antiques and collections was a treat. We will definitely go back!
