I have been to dozens of bed and breakfasts and this easily lands in my top five best experiences ever. Walter and Judy are wonderful hosts -- accommodating and friendly but not prone to hovering (thank goodness!).
On an anniversary weekend visit, my husband and I spent an afternoon sipping wine and watching a football game on the big downstairs television, and they were kind enough to provide us wine glasses. As a foodie, I loved the huge library of cookbooks and even borrowed one (Thomas Keller's "Bouchon") to read in our room -- the Wicker Room, which came with fluffy bathrobes and a bathroom to ourselves.
The breakfast the next morning was fantastic -- my eggs Benedict was perfectly cooked and covered in a rich hollandaise, and my husband's omelet was delicious and filling. Not to mention that the breakfast came with a fresh fruit salad (with melon and raspberries and apple and pear), a warm, sweet cranberry-pear crumble, cranberry walnut bread, six kinds of juice, tea, coffee and more. It was divine.
All of this was only $115 including taxes for one of the best deals at a bed and breakfast I have experienced. Acanthus is only a few miles from downtown, and it feels like you're in a whole other world.
