We have frequented many B&Bs throughout the United States and the Honeybee, by far, is an inn that everyone should experience. Upon entering the home, we were greeted by our names being displayed on a decorative chalkboard. This touch made us feel welcome from the moment we stepped into the foyer, and that feeling and attention to detail was present until the moment we left. We had a chance to view all of the rooms and each of them was tastefully appointed without being overly decorated. Sometimes the most basic amenities are the most memorable. For instance, the Flavia coffee machine offered coffee and tea at any time, while a small refrigerator was stocked with complementary soda and bottled water. In addition, the Honeybee offered a wide variety of books, movies and games to enjoy in this classic 1900s house. Finally, we looked forward to each morning's sumptuous breakfast that was served in the home's dining room. Gone was the large table, and in its place were two small tables that created the option of interaction with other guests or having a romantic breakfast next to the roaring fire. In the summer, you also have the choice of dining on the lovely veranda. To describe the food would take an additional review. Let's just say that the apple smothered French toast and other dishes rivaled any top quality restaurant. This B&B is not only a place to stay, it is a destination in itself.
