Your breath is almost taken as you drive by the white fence and then see the house off in the distance. As you drive up the long drive towards the home, you feel like you are going back in time to the antebellum South. Mrs. Jean is a gracious lady and her son gave us a wonderful historic review of the home. The house is actually open for tours daily, but we stayed overnight in the upstairs B&B rooms. The reason it survived the Civil War is that is was used as a field hospital for both sides. You could stay there all day reading the ledgers of the former owners, etc. The 2nd floor porch is inviting to sit and swing and talk and look out over the grounds. Ms. Peggy prepared morning tea/coffee prior to breakfast and served us on that porch. She was a wonderful breakfast hostess and the food (especially their "special" omelet) was terrific. You will note that I give the sleep quality a "less than excellent" rating. One reason for that is because we were there when they were having to treat for bees. Just be sure you do not stay during "bee-treating" time! I highly recommend this home for an overnight stay in "history".
