Having never stayed at a B&B, Partner and I opted to give the Highlawn Inn a try the weekend before Valentine's Day. What a pleasant stay! The location was great, just a block from the shops and restaurants, but it is up a hill. Be sure to ask for the 'back way'. We were lodged in the Victorian Suite, which was on the first floor and had its own private porch. It was too cold to use the porch, but it would be wonderful to sit out there on a nice day. The room was comfortable, spacious, and sunny. However, if you are a light sleeper (I am not), you may want to request another room, since the morning noise could disrupt your REM.
Now, let's move on to the food. Holy smokes, the breakfast here was amazing. I am a vegetarian, and there were plenty of options. Plenty and delicious. After the first breakfast, I really couldn't wait for the next breakfast. Each thing I had from the buffet-style breakfast was better than the last. So so delicious. We also got lucky as the Inn was hosting a special Valentine's dinner. Everything was cooked to perfection!
Finally, I'd like to thank Barbara for all of her assistance. She was great to talk with and gave us lots of great tips (such as the couches at the movie theater and how to cook spaghetti squash)!
