When I made a reservation for the Sobotta Manor, it was after I had searched a lot of spots on the internet. I wanted something extra special for our 40th wedding anniversary trip. We were driving up into the North Carolina wine country to sightsee and try some of the great NC wines.
Not long after I received my email confirmation for Sobotta Manor in Mt. Airy, the phone rang. Robin Hester, the proprietor, had called to offer information on what to do on the way up from Columbia, SC. She even sent us a possible itinerary for two days of visiting the area as well as lots of recommendations for good restaurants. Her suggestions were delightful. We stopped at two wineries and ate lunch at Shelton Vineyards.
Once we arrived, we were warmly received. The breakfast the next morning was gourmet. She credited her talents to her pastry chef grandfather and a mother who was a wonderful cook. Robin served homemade scallop-shaped blueberry pastries, poached pears, egg-sausage filled brioche, juice, coffee and tea.
The large rooms were filled with beautiful hand-crafted black walnut wood including the stairway and entry way. Robin and her husband, Junior, have the special sensitivity people who stay in bed and breakfasts appreciate. I plan to take my ladies writing group there sometime in the near future.
In the meantime, they made our 40th anniversary trip a memorable one.
