We have had the pleasure of staying here at this lovely Inn on several occasions and have never been disappointed. The staff has always been very friendly and helpful. This year we had the honor of being upgraded to The Innkeepers Suite which was, in a word: "Fabulous." Large, king size bed, beautifully decorated, quiet and very comfortable. Thanks Joyce!... More

We had a great time. The food was excellent. I am still dreaming about those grits! The cottage room was very nice. It had everything we needed. We liked the secluded feel of the cottage and it was just a short stroll across the street to fell connected to the Main house. We did not partake in the afternoon hors'... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the inn. The staff lavished personal attention on us, from the individually cooked-to-order breakfasts, to the homemade cookies and lemon aid, to the evening happy hour (honor system cash bar), to the complimentary homemade deserts after dinner. All of these events gave us an excuse to go into the living room and meet other... More
