“Lovely!”
Reviewed 2 June 2013

I have stayed in 20+ B&Bs in 5 states and 2 countries, and Simply Divine is probably one of the most stately. My family was there for a wedding and it was wonderful to have the whole house to ourselves. There were many common/sitting areas, which were delightfully decorated. The guest rooms are quite large and very comfortable. Breakfast was yummy. Carmen very nicely made some special arrangements for my niece, allowing her to stay in the main house with everyone else, which was greatly appreciated. It's a shame that the weather wasn't better (we were unable to enjoy the pool or the yard) and that our time was so limited (we didn't get to enjoy just being there). The only mild warnings I would share are for light sleepers and those with allergies. Light sleepers: be aware that there's a train nearby that might wake you off and on (don't know if it depends on wind direction or which room you're in). People with allergies: be sure to be tell them up front what your allergies are. Someone in our party has some serious allergies and as she had never stayed in a B&B before, she didn't realize that there isn't usually a choice for breakfast. She was served something she's allergic to, which we luckily caught in time and she was served something else. Would definitely return & would try to stay longer!

Carmen and Rob bent over backwards to accommodate my family when my father passed away and we needed a reception for 40 people with only about a week's notice. They arranged for my entire family to stay at the B&B and the nearby Shell Manor, and everyone raved about the food. It was home away from home for four days, and they truly helped us out during a very difficult time, even though it meant that they had to prepare, serve, and clean up after our event in addition to the bridal shower they had already booked months in advance! We will definintely be back and recommend to friends!

Room Tip: The first-floor Opal room worked well for me and my husband, who uses a wheelchair.

We stayed at this BB on the way back to Florida from New York. Normally my wife and I stay at the Hampton Inn and decided this time we are going to try something different.

We were in the Jade room, it had a king size a memory foam underneath. It also had a flat screen TV. Normally my wife is very picky about room being clean and this place met her expectations. The breakfast was also very good and fresh, way better than that hotel continental breakfast. The inn keepers live in the pool house in the back, they are very nice and accommodating. Please note, this place is more than a 100 years old and its shows it age a bit, but has been very well maintained. My parents are snow birds and they are going to stay here next trip back to NY. Highly recommend. A+. We will be back.

Room Tip: Try to stay in the upstairs rooms.

What a beautiful home!. Carmen and Rob have done a wonderful job restoring this remarkable house. Our only problem was that all of the B&B rooms are upstairs and my friend doesn't do stairs very well, but Rob was so good about helping with the luggage after helping her up the stairs that she was okay. He also helped her down the next morning and again with the luggage. The breakfast was outstanding. Then I went out to start the car, we had been so excited about this beautiful place that we forgot to unplug the refrigerator that we carry and the battery was dead. I tried AAA but to no avail, I've already addressed that situation, and Rob called a local garage, helped the driver push the car back to be accessible, all of this out in the rain, being taken care of with courtesy and efficiency we were on the road again. Thank you so much Rob and Carmen.

Miss Hassie,

Thank you for staying with us. Loved the 'eyelashes' on your car. We hope that you make it back to NC from OK again.

We were glad we could provide a little assistance with the vehicle - we know what's it like to be far from home and have car trouble.

We do have a downstairs room but unfortunately it was booked that night.

Best,

Carmen and Rob

My partner and I often stay at B & Bs while travelling along Interstate 95, and this one is the best by far. A lovely large house, with a charming and attentive couple owning it, and eager to please their guests. One really distinctive feature was their willingness to cook dinner for us on a Sunday evening, when all the local restaurants (except dreadful chain places) were closed. And breakfast the next morning was beyond compare the most delightful I have ever had in an American B & B. First rate, excellent, and worth breaking a trip early if you have to - this place is fabulous!

Carmen and Rob are accommodating and gracious hosts. We contacted them the day before our arrival to see if there were availabilities and they described the last remaining room, and at that time we also made arrangements with them to have dinner. Our room was perfect and so was the dinner--which consisted of a large delicious lettuce salad, creamed chicken breasts, asian rice, mixed vegetables, coconut cake. The only possible shortcoming of the place was the fact that there was a shortage of available electrical outlets in our room! The best B&B we've visited in our 50 years of marriage.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Coral Room, which was quiet with a nice view overlooking the garden.

And the interesting thing is that this southern style comfort is provided by a couple from Canada! Rob and Carmen are great hosts, helpful but not intrusive. It's great for a romantic get away. The rooms are fine; ours had an old painted design washbowl in the bath. Beautiful old ceiling beams; stained glass windows on the stairwell. You will like this stop-off on a long trip, right in the middle of a town with many old antebellum homes. Next door is a military museum. Oops, almost forgot to mention the breakfasts. Very good and varied. We stayed three nights.

Room Tip: Check out the Coral room with the painted bath basin.
