Oh my goodness, I am gushing. This is one of the best B&B experiences that I have had. My husband and I stayed at Emma's on St. Mary's for four nights. We stayed in room 501, which is more of a little bungalow off the back of the property.
I will say, that I was a little nervous when I booked, the person on the phone did not seem very friendly but after reading many reviews of B&B's in the area, I decided to put my worries aside and just see.
WHen we arrived, I still wasn't sure, the proprietress did not seem very friendly. However, I have to say, I came to really like her and found her to be a very friendly person.
On to the room, it was beautiful, really, after climbing the stairs, when you open the door you walk into a nice sitting area with a sofa and a large chair and ottoman. There is a television with a television on top in this space as well. This is a very pretty room that I don't fell that I am describing adequately.
There is a narrow little hallway that leads to a cute little bathroom and then into the cute bedroom. The mattress is so comfortable it is better than my mattress at home, which is hard to beat. The room was so secluded that it was very quiet. We slept well every night that we were there. Even when we were in the room at one in the afternoon, there were no noises that would be distracting or aggravating. On the porch of this little room, there are two comfortable chairs that you can sit outside in and enjoy your surroundings. This room is positioned in such a way that I felt like we were in the trees and that was a great unexpected treat.
Every morning we had really great breakfasts. The first morning was grits, eggs, and country ham(I don't eat pork, for health reasons but my husband loved the ham!). WE also had a really good waffle and then some pretty and tasty french toast. I loved breakfast every morning that we ate it.
As far as cleanliness, I really need a clean environment. I have gone out and bought cleaning products, in the past, when I found housekeeping lacking in a place that I was staying. The definitely not a problem at Emma's everything was very clean. The carpet, the restrooms, everything. You could feel very comfortable in this room.
I love looking for and shopping for antiques and the proprietress gave me some great suggestions of places to go.
We had a mishap with a cooler while we were there and her husband helped me as much as he could, even though he was on his way to work when he came out to see my predicament. I really appreciated him going out of his way to help me. Every day of our trip, I was really glad that we chose to stay there and I would recommend this place to anyone. We don't' travel often and we need to get the most and best quality for our money when we do. I can tell you, that I fell strongly that we got the best at Emma's!
