Yes, it's cluttered and there's no separate guest spot. But I stayed here before coming to live in Georgetown for a time, and Mary and Joe could not have been sweeter. Totally interested in me and my life, they did seem like a new elderly Southern aunt and uncle. I ended up settling in the neighborhood and Mary came to shop our yard sale. She told me all about her children and their life, and was perfectly happy for me to get my binoculars and bird watch the marsh that fronts their home.
So, en fin, for Souther hospitality, y'all can't beat the Shaw House. If you want a fancy breakfast and uncluttered surroundings, find a different place in G'town.
