We really enjoyed our stay here. Lots of history in this old building. The hotel was decked out for Christmas and made for a great stay. Very clean rooms with comfortable beds and a plentiful but not fancy breakfast. Dinner was not served the night we stayed, although other guests said it is always good.

Very unique place to stay ... Upstairs balcony was nice place to sit and the food was awesome. You don't want to miss that dinner bell! We stayed in room 28 upstairs at the end ... Nice accommodations and newly remodeled.

A throwback to the past with the history that comes forth yet peaceful, perfect and the ideal getaway. John and Wendy are most excellent hosts; Diane and the kitchen staff make you feel at home. You cannot beat it for friendliness, price, cleanliness, location. Perfect getaway for couples; awesome for groups. Try it once and you'll tell others.

Visited this hotel near Christmas for 3 nights. It wasn't crowded and my daughter and I were treated so well! We stayed in a room that was set up exactly the way I pictured a Southern room to look like. Breakfast was delicious, coffee was perfect. The overall experience was welcoming and I'd recommend anyone visiting this area to stay... More

We went and spent a night in the bridal suite to Celebrate our 49 th anniversary. It was as if we had stepped back in time. Loved the feeling, food and our hostess, Wendy. Will definitely go back. Our room was just right. Had a door that opened out into the front covered porch where you can sit and rock... More
