“Mixed experience”
Reviewed October 11, 2004

An interesting place that typifies the 'mixed bag' aspect of staying at bed and breakfast establishments. The upside: Jacob's Resting Place is a beautiful old historic building with comfortable rooms, reasonable rates, a nice pool, and a sumptious if somewhat over-large gourmet breakfast. The downside: It reeks of mothballs, the fireplace in my room still had ashes in it (in June), and the husband of the couple that owns/runs the place is loquacious to the point of annoyance if you're foolish enough to ask him about the Civil War (he gives guided tours of the battlefield to interested groups). If you can accept a certain amount of quirkiness, Jacob's Resting Place may suit you. In not, look elsewhere.
