From the moment my husband and I stepped on to the property of the Sweetwater Branch Inn, we felt "at home." Scott greeted us with a warm smile and quickly checked us in to our room. He provided information about the inn as well as local events that were going on during the weekend. We stayed in the Isadora room of the McKenzie House. I have to say the pictures on the website don't do this room justice. From the comfy bed to the jacuzzi tub, everything was perfect. We enjoyed reading in the stained glass window sitting area and even took a nap there in the afternoon. I can't even begin to convey how scrumptious the breakfast was at the Sweetwater. Everything was homemade from the corned beef hash to the granola. The staff welcomed us into the kitchen and it felt like we were part of the family. Even Butterscotch, one of the resident felines, greeted us each morning. The gardens are beautiful and we enjoyed sipping a glass of wine in the evening while listening to one of the many fountains on the property. We were celebrating our anniversay and I believe that the Sweetwater Branch Inn will become our traditional anniversary getaway. If you are looking for hospitality, clean rooms with southern charm and a relaxing retreat from a busy life, I hightly recommend the Sweetwater Branch Inn.
