My husband and I were given a weekend at the Kenwood Inn in early 2006 as a wedding gift from my mother's boss, who had stayed there with her family a few months prior and loved it. We were very excited to be staying downtown, and in a supposedly haunted B&B! (No, we didn't see any ghosts).
Upon arrival, we were greeted by one of the owners (it is owned by a husband and wife); he knew who we were when we arrived and was so kind to us, it felt like arriving at the home of a relative! We stayed in the Rose Room (I believe it is called the English Room now; it had two double beds at the time), and I was impressed by how much it reminded me of the Victorian home of my aunt in Moultrie, GA, both in look and in the comfortable feel of the place. The property is lovely; there is a beautiful southern porch, a welcoming living room, and a koi pond. And they have bikes that you can borrow!
We were there on the weekend, and on weekends, the wife makes pastries and quiches and other baked goods for the continental breakfast; fresh fruits are available too, as well as mimosas and bloody marys (hey, you ARE on vacation in the south, have a drink with breakfast!). Nothing is better than homemade breakfast.
Upon checking out, the owners hugged us. It really was like staying with family.
