Truly THE place to stay in Ladysmith. Right there with the bigger chain hotels in town on price, but way ahead in charm, class, and cleanliness. The owners are very friendly and REALLY know the town. Rooms are wonderfully decorated and breakfast was superb. This B&B is not a place to pass by.

I grew up in this little town and the Carnegie Library was central to my childhood. This B&B is excellently run, great atmosphere, comfortable rooms and bathrooms. The sitting area upstairs is a good gathering spot for a late drink and visit. My Mom and I had a chance to catch up and enjoyed the first snow last Nov. Mr... More

What a luxurious and historic place to stay. A public library donated to the folks of Ladysmith in 1907 by Andrew Carnegie has been converted to a bed and breakfast by a charming couple. There are six themed rooms decorated with period collectibles, retaining the ambience of this turn of the century library. Complete with a central sitting room with... More
