Although I love to stay in a B & B whenever I can, I can seldom afford it. What a nice surprise to find one that is warm, convenient, beautifully restored and decorated, and that costs not much more than a mid-priced hotel plus breakfast. I happened to pick up a copy of the Georgia Travel Guide at the Welcome Center and phoned the Fairview Inn out of curiosity. The price quoted by Linda was so reasonable that I had to say I'd call back. I wanted to check the TA reviews before committing! Having read them, I called back immediately to book for the night. Linda warned me that, following River Road from the Interstate, I'd be passing through a less that inviting area, and I'm glad she did! Literally crossing the tracks, you find the oldest residential part of Valdosta--and a collection of graceful and lovingly restored homes and gardens. Iwrin greeted me in the driveway, offering to help me with my luggage. The first thing I noticed upon entering was the welcoming aroma of the garden's citrus trees and spring flowers. My immaculate room had a nautical theme, a superbly comfortable bed, a desk (with fast wi-fi available), and a wonderful shower! The only thing I felt lacking was a good reading light by the bed--a small matter. Breakfast was ample, southern, and delicious. When I commented to Irwin that I appreciated their making such a beautiful place and experience affordable, he explained that they were committed to sharing their home at the most reasonable price they could. How nice is THAT!
