My wife and I stayed the first weekend of 2012. The home was very well decorated and tasteful, preserving both the time period of the home, but many modern conviences. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful and we talked with them and other guests well after breakfast and could have longer. Both were well traveleld and had many great experiences. The food was excellant!. The rooms were spacious and we enjoyed the gas logs, esp in the morning as a cold front moved in. The owners noted that the air/heat was a bit old and they were having some issues with it and it was rather chilly in the AM, but the gas logs helped. It did not put us off at all to considering returning. We would go back and highly recommend this B&B!. Thanks for a great stay and great food, company!!!

- Once home to artist Henry MacMillan, The Camellia Cottage is a high-peaked, Queen Anne shingle house featuring four guest rooms. A long veranda, painted by a local artist, provides a view of the lush garden of azaleas, magnolias, ferns and camellias. Here, great food, gracious service and a friendly atmosphere make for a relaxing guest experience. Greet each morning with coffee at your door and a sumptuous breakfast of fruit, homemade pastries and entree. Paula’s stint as a hotel pastry chef ensures a delightful dining experience. The Crane Suite features an ornate, metal bed, carved fireplace and vibrant color. Formerly the sun room, the bath and dressing area is filled with lush tropical plants. Henry’s Room, featuring a canopy bed and fireplace, reflects the stateliness found in two of Henry’s paintings hanging in the house. Jane’s Room is named after Henry’s mother and features floral designs and vintage photos complementing the four-post bed and fireplace. In the Tuscany Room, the golden glow of the walls and large windows make you think you’re in an Italian villa. Enjoy the fireplace from the whimsical iron bed or soak in the claw-foot tub with a glass of Chianti. ... more less
