My mother and I (early 30's)needed to come to town unexpectedly and she found this B&B online. The online description doesn't capture the tranquilty of the balcony where you may sip a hot beverage, concealed by tall oaks and mountain laurels and watch the neighborhood slowly come to life. The beautiful homes and abundant gardens give you a feeling of being in the country despite the cityscape standing tall only blocks away.
Breakfast was an experience in itself. Suffice to say, the food (served in courses) was wonderful. However, the ambiance in the formal dining room with all the guests sitting at one table was like a dinner party. People whom I'd only met the morning before, I was inexplicably excited to see again and hear of the previous day's adventures (and misadventures). What was their opinion on the thing they had done yesterday and did I have any advice for their plans today? Walking in on our breakfast, you would not think we were a table of strangers and I look forward to returning to Brackenridge House
