I've just returned from my second stay at Kenwood Inn. It now feels like my "home away from home". I originally found it on the internet and booked it for a "girls weekend". We both had so much fun we said we would be back later with our husbands.
The charm of the house and the location is what first drew me.
Being a fan of Eugenia Price's novels about the area, my friend and I had read "Maria", the historical fiction based on the life of a woman who once owned the "Oldest House" one block from the Kenwood. We were thrilled to walk the streets and see the sights of the old city we'd read about.
The latest trip was a romantic get-away with my husband. We enjoyed the quiet courtyard, the afternoon wine, lovely breakfasts and close proximity to shops and restaraunts. Staff members are excellent and told us about lesser known cafes and shops which were even more special than the touristy ones.
We also learned that the Red Trolley comes right down Bridge St. which runs beside the inn. We were able to catch it simply by stepping out the courtyard door and walking a few feet.
One advantage of this B&B is the perfect little pool area. It's walled in and partially shaded-a welcome retreat from the heat of afternoon sight-seeing. We also liked that they have a fridge in a niche in the common hallway so we could keep soft drinks and snacks there. One day we brought salads home and stayed in that night...very cozy.
This is not a place for children. It is old and creaky and quaint but just right for singles or couples who want a secure and quiet place to settle in and enjoy themselves.
