This was our first stay in a B&B and it was the best vacation we've ever had. The historic nature of the home and the attention to detail from the innkeepers makes this a very memorable stay. The town of Southport is quaint, idealic, and relaxing. Rick and Linda met us when we arrived and gave us a tour of the town. They were very accomodating to my dietary needs both for breakfast and during the snack times. For a special anniversary gift, there was chilled champagne waiting in our room. The common areas in the house were inviting and relaxing. We used their bikes to go around the time and took them up on many suggestions for dining. If you are looking for a comfortable beautiful place to relax in, you have found the spot.
