Where do I even begin! This was my first bed and breakfast experience, and now I think I will never go back to regular hotels. The location of the B&B was great- in the historic Montford district and within walking distance to the bus stop. The food was absolutely to die for. Each breakfast was a masterpiece with such unique touches, like cold peach soup and an amazingly light egg souffle. The owners mentioned they shopped at the local farmers market & it definitely showed! We stayed in the Gold Finch room and our bathroom was amazing with a soaking tub and separate luxurious shower. After check-in we were surprised to find a spread of hors d'oeurves and wine welcoming us before we went out for dinner. It included pancetta and cantaloupe skewers, chocolate covered almonds, and cheeses. This is offered nightly and is a great way to start your evening. We enjoyed talking with James about his travels and taking his recommendations for dinner while watching the sunset on the large front porch. Through the back door of the inn there is a terrace with grape vines and a zen garden with a fountain. When we thought this B&B couldn't get any better, James slipped printed directions under our door to the restaurant where we told him we had reservations.
