We stayed at the Watson House on August 4th - unfortunately it was only a one night stay on our way to Virginia. We arrived and were immediately greeted by Clyde, the big, beautiful white cat! We were then greeted by Bob, who took us on a tour and history of the Watson House. We stayed in the Front Porch Room, which was right on the main floor. It was very nice, but the small sitting area is directly behind the porch, so you can see and hear some of the guests on the front porch. That wasn't too bad, we also went out on the front porch and joined the guests. We had a good time chatting with a couple who have been coming to the Watson House for over 15 years. Bob gave us good suggestions for dinner and made our reservation. The breakfast was wonderful -- Carole is a terrific cook, we did get to meet her briefly before our departure. I did wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you Bob for the map of the local wineries.
