I was in Washington for a business trip for one night and stayed at the Pamlico House. To be fair, I don't usually stay at B&Bs for business, but it looked charming and fun. Virginia was very sweet and directed me to a binder of restaurants to choose from for the night. The room was very chilly, and there was a space heater in the room for my use. It would have been a nice touch to have this on before I arrived, as it took a long time for the room to get to a reasonable temp. The room did not have very many outlets, and I had to unplug a lamp to plug in my cell phone. There would have been no outlets for me to plug in a computer if needed. I would suggest a power strip.
I went to dinner, and when I came back, Virginia was having a dinner party with her friends. This was a weird thing for me, as I was staying in a room upstairs and kind of felt like I couldn't fully use the sitting areas and had to stay in my room. It was pretty loud and sounded like they were having quite a time until about 8:45 or so. I found this kind of weird since I was paying to stay there. It wasn't a huge deal - just strange.
I slept great, and VIrginia made french toast and sausage for breakfast, which was fabulous. I feel bad about the mediocre review because Virginia is so nice. However, I probably wouldn't stay there again because it was definitely awkward to be at a house where there was a party I wasn't invited to being thrown. Maybe that's just me...
