I have stayed in two different bed and breakfast. The first one was real fancy high class felt like a hotel type service lots of people fast paced busy big fancy breakfast with all the trimmings. The confederate house was the second one I have stayed in and the experience was a lot different. It was more like being a guest in someone's home in my opinion. So in saying that, I say you would have to critique this place in a whole different light than if you were critiquing a normal Bed and Breakfast. I could not sit here and say, "well I didn't like because of this or that little flaw." because if you were to come to my home there would be a flaw that you wouldn't see in a hotel like perfect towels or hair somewhere. If you came to my house (a normal human beings house) you,would find something. As caretakers of our homes we are all only human and everything is not perfect. So basically I'm saying that I felt like I paid to stay in a room of Ms. Colleen's home. I was a guest kinda like you see in a movie or read in a book from the old days when the train rolled in carrying that visitor or the horse and buggy came carrying that aunt not seen for years. Everything was quiet and laid back and THAT is what WE were looking for but I understand others may not like that so that's why I'm leaving this feedback so that maybe someone can understand the situation and not get disappointed and feel like they wasted their money WHICH WAS A GREAT RATE by the way! I understand that Ms. Colleen feels the need to carry on conversation during breakfast and that does have to be hard so don't get offended if she says something you may not agree with or a fowl word or two or a story about an affair that her guest had just nod and smile. And think about what you might would say if it were you and you didn't know what exactly to say to carry a conversation for your guest. Ok now for the rooms we had the opportunity to stay in two of the rooms. The president Davis and the general Lee. Both were good rooms I liked the general Lees decor better than Davis but Davis bed was more comfy than Lees. I do wish that the bathrooms ( both of them ) would have had blinds or shades covering the windows even though the building is VERY tall and no would could probably see, it felt weird! Ms.Colleen Had plenty of treats chocolate cake and the most wonderful cranberry and nut pound cake and cherry pie served with coffee. The breakfast was SIMPLE one morning was biscuits and gravy the next morning was a waffle both times we were served fresh fruit and orange juice we were offered coffee and tea. This was good for us as we are not big breakfast eaters. The downstairs room ws BEAUTIFUL!!!!!We loved our stay here and would stay again but....... It was what WE were looking for and all that plays a big factor in whether you will like this place or not!!!!!
