Once a year we plan a 2 week motorcycle trip in the US. We camp and we visit B&B's. We pretty much traveled coast to coast and many of the west coast states. In short, the Carolina B&B is the best one we have stayed at in many years of traveling. It is such a wonderful decorated house and atmosphere that it feels like staying with old friends.
The house is carefully decorated with antiques and Colleen clearly has a keen eye when purchasing new treasures from estate sales and antique stores.
Our room upstairs was large and just excellent. The King bed could not have been more comfortable and the room even has a TV set which we were happy to find as our native country The Netherlands played their semi finals shortly after we arrived.
Colleen is a fantastic host. She makes you feel at home immediately and is genuinely interested in her guests. She even invited us to share some wine later that evening. It was a pleasure to share some stories in the backyard with Colleen, a friend and her sister.
Then, the breakfast. Pat, the superb cook and help around the house, prepared an exquisite breakfast including a wonderful starter, main dish and desert.... yes, for breakfast. We stuffed ourselves. Her homemade scones were to die for as well. We brought some with us which we enjoyed on our way to Glacier Park.
Furthermore, the house is smack in the right part of town. Walking distance from great restaurants and the quirky little town center. Wonderful architecture all around the neighborhood including the Cathedral across the street.
We walked towards the Capitol (a bit of a walk) where we enjoyed the tram tour. That was very interesting too and a nice way to see the town and learn about the history. We did not know anything about Helena and left town the next day knowing a whole lot more about Helena and Montana.
All in all, highly recommended. You will not be disappointed. Colleen, we will be back.
