“The Colonel Taylor is gracious Victorian elegance with all the creature comforts.”
Our first visit to the Colonel Taylor became the perfect getaway at the instant we entered the Inn. Our hosts were most gracious and pleasant to be with and made us completely welcome and at home. We were delighted with our richly decorated accomodations and the story of the efforts put forth to update, restore and preserve this genuine "Painted Lady". The scale of the home was grand with large, open common areas for quiet reading or conversation. The antique furnishings throughout the home had been chosen for their utility as well as the look of each piece. Since there were only four rooms available, interaction among guests and hosts easily moved to first-name basis. This was especially true over breakfast which was a beautifully presented, multi-course function that was served in the ornate dining room at our own chosen time and pace.
The grounds and the quiet residential neighborhood that surrounds the Inn were tree filled and invited leisurely walking. We were urged to have an ice tea on one of the three porches attached to the house or to use the raised patio in back under the trees.
All in all, the site, the grounds, the house and the hosts created a refined respite and the best in hospitality; a truly pampered retreat.
