Hospitality WOW factor
They have something to drink or snack on all day! Amazing stay in the best antebellum B&B 1 mile from old town I've ever experienced. Nice pool, garden, coy pond, bicycles, and even had Off spray available! Our stay could not have been better.

8/10 Very good

The bed in our room was a bit high, so it was kinda hard to get into. The mattress was too soft for me. It would be good if they could let people know before choosing a room, which rooms had a firm or soft mattress. I didn't like the hot breakfast option because of their offering for our particular stay/day, but I did enjoy the cereal and the fresh fruit.

Loved it!!!
We had a great time. The staff was friendly and informative. Great amenities like free parking, breakfast, dessert, social hour, and if you stay at the beach cottage or bungalow they provide you with beach chairs and towels. Whether you stay at there beach locations or the bed and breakfast in the historic downtown you will love it. Were trying to figure out our next trip.
