After reading wonderful reviews online, my fiancé and I planned a brief getaway at Lee House to celebrate his 40th birthday. With 4 days on our hands, we anticipated spending some time at the beach and finding a nice place to rest but after arrival and relaxing into the graceful elegance, we found no need to leave the comfort and deliciousness of Lee House. The only reasons we sauntered out was for casual walks in Downtown Pensacola and the historic village surrounding the Inn, or for meals in the area's wonderful restaurants.
Each of our days began with the most generous and sumptuous of breakfasts accompanied by our friendly and sweet Hostess, Norma Murray. She shared warm and genuine conversation that truly made us feel as if we were guests in her home, sharing a meal. The breakfasts were bountiful, delicious, and made with such love and care! Our room and all the public areas were beautifully appointed and expertly designed. Our afternoons were usually spent romantically relaxing on the balcony, sipping wine, and enjoying the Summer comfort of cool Gulf breezes.
When it came the day of my fiancé's birthday, Norma even surprised us with a lovely sour cream cake that she made exclusively for the occasion! We were so very touched and grateful by all the quaint and sweet details of our time at Lee House that now that we are back home, we miss the tantalizing breakfasts, warm conversation, and are yearning for a return.
In essence, we found the Inn [and our host] beautiful, gracious, and surrendered to enjoying a few lazy days of pleasantries and restful indulgences that our spirits sorely needed. Our visit was a balm for the senses, and we highly recommend time at Lee House [and with Norma Murray] to experience the kind of hospitable details that converge into a sweet memory for those seeking a respite from the outside world.
