Two of the friendliest and most talented guys I've ever met run this beautifully restored B. and B. From the time I called to inquire about a reservation to the moment my family and I left ---David and Keith made us feel welcome.
When we first arrived they greeted us at the door on a very hot day with cold drinks and with the most adorable little dog you'll ever see ( Sace, ..short for Versace ). My daughters ( age 7 and 10 ) fell in love with the dog instantly. David and Keith are happy to keep the dog locked up but if you are not allergic or otherwise averse the dog Sace is definitely an added bonus.
They have done wonders with the restoration of this home, much of the work done by themselves over the course of years. The attention to detail and care taken is seen all around inside and out. From the clean white outer trim on yellow exterior, the well kept beautiful gardens and the adorned peaks of the roof outside to the immaculate rooms, the restored old hard wood floors, the fabric wall paper in almost every room, and the ornate design tastefully filling every crevice of the inside, the result is a treat for the guest at every turn.
In the front yard they have a river just down past the pretty gazebo where the kids ( and the dog ) played in the water. In the backyard a nice sitting area with an outdoor fireplace. Inside they have decorated with wonderful antique furniture, including two pianos, one of which David was gracious enough to play for us in the evening ( he was very good_
Keith showed us a very detailed hand crafted doll house that he made in his spare time and also played an old vinyl record on an authentic working antique victrola ( my kids had never seen a "record player".
We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast the following morning...pecan pancakes,blueberry pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage, fresh fruit and the most delicious cold "peach soup"!
We were spending the weekend visiting beautiful Lake James. David and Keith are from the area and are very knowledgeable about what to do and what to avoid and more than glad to share their information.
We would definitely go back again.
Enjoy your stay!
