Janetta was a most accommodating hostess. I didn't have a car because I arrived and departed by train. She picked me up at the train station and gave me a quick tour of downtown on the way to the inn. (By the way, Pecan Manor is within walking distance of the Amtrak stop [I won't go so far as to call it a "station"] provided the weather is decent, you are in halfway-decent shape, and you are able to carry or roll all your bags with you.) The inn is old but well-appointed, clean, and an attractive place to spend the night. She gave me a choice of items that she could prepare for breakfast the next morning, since I was the only guest that night. Plenty of great food and coffee in the morning, followed by a ride back to the train station. I would love to go back again with my wife and stay a couple days. Janetta obviously loves what she's doing and enjoys catering to her guests.
