First, I would like to say that I wish I could have brought Shireen home with us to help decorate our home!!!!
The Silas Robbins House is absolutely stunning. I honestly can say it's one of the most beautiful homes I've ever seen.
We arrived late afternoon and were greeted by John who gave us a tour of this amazing B&B. Every part of this home was spotlessly clean. The beautiful details and decor make it a feast for the senses.
We stayed in the Jane Robbins room which has a elegant bathroom with soaking tub and walk in shower.
I did get a peek at the other guest rooms and they all were lovely. John and Shireen have a great website and I can honestly say that the rooms are exactly as shown.
Blessed with a beautiful morning, our breakfast was served al fresco on the front porch....What a treat.
We started with coffee, juice and then we were presented with a goblet of fresh fruit. It was beautiful!!!! After the fruit course came orange scented French toast served with both bacon and sausage and all the accompaniments. Everything was outstanding.
John and Shireen have achieved a perfect balance of luxury and approachability.
Thank you both for an amazing stay.
