I am well traveled and experienced with bed and breakfast places and this was by far the BEST experience! Ms. Bonnie and her staff are simultaneously gracious and welcoming while still allowing personal time for privacy. The rooms are all so different but offer amazing slices of serenity that make you feel like you are transported to another world. When I travel I like to spend all of my time outside if the hotel but while staying At this b&b I found myself leaving late and returning mid afternoon and early evening. The large bathrooms with large bathtubs, fireplaces, and private porches with rockets, popasin chairs, and plants offer a magestic, quiet place for reading , coffee, picnics, or just gazing through the trees and falling leaves. Every morning, long before breakfast hot coffee and hot water for tea are placed on beautiful trays just outside your room. In the afternoons there are ice cold sodas in the upstairs hallway refrigerator. In the evening various wines are provided in crystal glassware just upstairs in the hallway. I always felt like I had access to everything without feeling like I needed to go ask someone for it. Ms. Bonnie is a hostess who will provide maps, brochures, coupons, and any other info her guests need but also enable her guests to do their own explorations. I loved that the house was close enough to walk a few minutes to be in town but far enough to not hear anything going on in town. I can't describe in words the five star culinary masterpieces provided for breakfast! What variety, what a treat with lit candles and fine china and linen... A great way to start the day. This is by far the best bed and breakfast AND hotel experience I have ever had- a place I will most definitely return to sooner rather than later.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Entering the Alexander Homestead through the picturesque front porch from the garden walkway you can hear strains of classical music and spy a small book of Emily Dickinson's poetry in the formal living room - rich with antiques and romance. This is a perfectly appointed inn, with five of the most inviting and romantic bedrooms that hint of lavender sachets and pale hues of vintage opulence. You'll return time and again to the Alexander Homestead! ... more less
