My husband and I were reluctant to ever try another B&B, because, up to staying at The Squirrel's Nest, we had not had any good experiences. We wanted to do something special to celebrate our one year anniversary, and my husband found The Squirrel's Nest online. We read the reviews, and I have to admit, we were hesitant to give it a try. I am SO glad we did!! Not only was this a beautiful B&B, but Inez and David were beautiful people who welcomed us from the get go. Inez gave us a tour as well as some history on the property and her family. Amazing story! We stayed in the penthouse, and it was beyond stunning! The view, the room..all of it was incredible! As if the room wasn't enough, the breakfast they made us on both days was the best I've ever had! They spared no expense, and not one detail was overlooked in the presentation and the flavor! We enjoyed our visit immensely, and we are looking forward to going back as soon as we are able!
I also asked Inez to make one of her fruit bouquets, and it was gorgeous! And yummy! She helped me add some extra touches to make it special for my husband and I.
One more thing...Inez puts cookies in every room for her guests. These are the best cookies I have EVER put in my mouth!!! I could not get enough of them! I can't stress it enough that anyone reading this needs to visit this wonderful place. I don't have enough words to express my gratitude to Inez and David for making us feel at home as soon as we arrived. I will forever be grateful to this incredible couple for all they did!
