This is a beautiful historic house and a wonderful B&B that clearly deserves its five star rating. The interior is lovely with crystal chandeliers, and soft music playing in the background. Each room is tastefully decorated with flowered wall paper, fireplaces, four poster beds, etc.
PROS: Excellent location. Easy to find. Walking distance into Historic Charles Town. Yard is filled with huge shade trees and kept very neat and clean. Large front porch for sitting with a cup of coffee or tea after a long day of site-seeing. Breakfast was way beyond the norm. Very elegant and clearly shows the effort of the proprietors...exceptional! (Napkin rings, linen napkins, fruit in martini glasses, china plates, whipped eggs with asparagus tips, blueberry pancakes, freshly baked muffins, juice of you choice, 2 inch thick maple french toast with apple slices.) Coffee and tea in the afternoons with a homemade goodie. Soda, juices and hot/cold water available 24/7 in the second floor hallway. Wine glasses, too. HOT water for showers and plenty of it. Free parking off of the street. Marie and Don are WONDERFUL! They really go the extra mile into assuring that their guests have a 5 star stay!
Robin's Nest: Encompasses the entire third floor. VERY Private. Two rooms in one. Sitting room with day bed on one side of the chimney. Queen size bed, closet and bathroom on the other side. Two dormer and one side window gives you plenty of light. You feel like you are in the trees. Air conditioner works great. Electric fireplace stove will take off a chill. Decor pleasing and kept very clean and tidy.
CONS: Pillows are a bit flat. (in the Robin's Nest)
We have stayed in B&Bs from Alaska to Key West and can truly say that this place was amazing in every aspect. It has to rank as the best in every category.
