After reading some of the other reviews, I am going to sound like a broken record......The Mayhurst is a great B&B. The property is beautiful and the intial presentation of the main house after driving up the secluded access road is stunning. The hosts are very helpful with local information and a pleasure to deal with. Since we had a small dog with us, we stayed in the School House and found it charming and very secluded. Dogs are not allowed inside the main house, so we enjoyed the wine & cheese offering as well as breakfast on the front and rear porch respectively. Jack and Pat went out of their way to carve out time for us so we did not feel isolated (they join the guests for wine and cheese). They are also a treasure trove of information on the plantation history.
Breakfast was very good....eggs benedict, potatoes, muffins, etc. All made from scratch. Many B&Bs pay lipservice to the breakfast portion of the stay, but not this Inn.
Lots of antique shops and wineries in the area as well as other historical sites.....we will return.
