My husband surprised me with the visit to Amelia and couldn't have done a better job at choosing the Addison. It was perfectly located w/i walking distance ( 2-3 blocks) to the waterfront (avoid Brett''s Waterfront Cafe) fabulous restaurants, shops & entertainment.
I'm not a huge fan of B&B's if I can't open a door & be on my own veranda or otherwise breath fresh air. It appeared most rooms did have a balcony with chairs. They have an 'addition' in keeping w/ the historical structure that fits seamlessly into the lot. It's almost like having your own suite. Large rooms & bathrooms with wonderful linens.If I were to be picky it would be that the bathroom had a pedestal sink w/ no counter room for cosmetics. But a huge tub with Lavender Bath Salts made up for it!
The Hosts are pros & genuinely appear to enjoy their role.
