I had the pleasure of staying at this lovely bed and breakfast last week while in the area for a meeting. I would highly recommend it for business or pleasure. Mary Kay is a most gracious host and made us feel right at home with her thoughtful amenities and homemade lemon lavender cookies. I would have loved to have lingered longer and spent even more time in conversation with Mary Kay and learned more about the home's fascinating history.
Be sure to make time to enjoy the setting if you are on a business trip. This would be the perfect place for a girls getaway weekend, small wedding or retreat. The house is beautifully appointed and my room was warm and inviting and the bed was very comfortable. Even if you tend to stay in traditional hotels, you will enjoy this change of pace and the pleasure of this relaxing environment.
