“Spacious and great value!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2012

This was one of the largest rooms I have ever stayed. 2 story, over 1000 square feet all to yourself! My only complaint would be the bathroom. They indicate that they just remodeled it in 1999 and yet the position of the tub is in an awkward area. This unit (The Fountain Room) does not have a shower, only a tub. Perfect for those that want to relax in a tub. You do have a hand held shower head, but need to either be sitting down in the tub, or on your knees since the tub is located in the eaves section where the roof doesn't permit you to stand. Other than that, it was great. Huge bedroom, separate kitchen area (all upstairs) as well as a sitting room on the first floor. This was like a mini apartment! Great value. Would recommend for a romantic get away! This had a hot tub in the backyard but never did try it out so cannot comment on its usefulness. I would stay in this unit again even with the tub area.

Room Tip: Fountain room is only for those folks who do not need a shower, but instead want to relax in a tub...

The Victorian Mansion is absolutely delightful. The chandeliers are gorgeous and the bed was the most comfortable bed ever. My expectations were exceeded!

So quaint but with modern conveniences We sat on the front porch all night ling. The decor was so reminiscent of my great grandmother's house, but with a huge screen tv

This house was large enough to hold 5 families..and the wrap around porch was a great place for all of us to visit. The accomodations were perfect and comfortable..actually our SAVANNAH quarters was large enough to sleep 8 but it was just us 2. We will definitely return and stay again!

This was our 5th stay at an absolute charm bed & breakfast. We are repeat customers for a reason. The rooms are always 5 star. Victorian Mansion had a huge shower, plush canopy bed, a spiral staircase leading up to a loft, a jetted tub under a stained glass window, and a private garage. We loved it.

To be fair, let me start with the positives. We stayed in the Master Suite, which was very nice. The room was very spacious and clean, and the bed....oh my. The bed was absolutely amazing. Hands down, THE MOST comfortable bed I have ever slept in.

My first issue with this B&B is that it's missing the second "B" - there's no breakfast! Instead, you get a voucher for $12 (per couple, so $6 per person) which you can use toward breakfast at one of five local restaurants. A few problems with this:
1. Every restaurant on the list was closed on either Saturday or Sunday. A little strange, since aren't most people coming for a weekend getaway? No big deal, just a little tricky when trying to strategically plan.
2. $12 was enough to cover about half the cost of the meal, when you include tax and gratuity. It just seems a little stingy. Still, not a big deal, just something we found a little inconvenient.

Also, there weren't any sort of snacks or refreshments provided in the room. Not even a bottle of water. Granted, I haven't stayed at many B&B's, so maybe this is the norm. We just expected maybe there would be SOME kind of something upon arrival...like maybe some fruit or juice or a granola bar.

The next issue we found was with the jacuzzi. It was absolutely wonderful to enjoy the enormous, spa-like, relaxing whirlpool bath....until we turned the jets off. Obviously, the tub had not been used or cleaned in a long while because there were hundreds of particles of dirt and even a few dead bugs floating around with us in the water. Romantic. We exited promptly.

For our last and most awkward complaint, on Saturday night at about 9:30pm, one of the maintenance people tried to WALK INTO our room....without knocking, unannounced. All of the sudden we heard someone fiddling with the doorknob, like they were trying to pick the lock or find the right key. It's important to know that the entrance to the Master Suite is through the garage....where our car was parked. So obviously, we were in the room. My husband inquired through the [closed] door, who was there and what did they want. He replied that he was supposed to fix the hot water heater - we did not even have a hot water heater in our room! It was extremely rude and inconvenient, and downright disturbing that he would have just walked right in without knocking.

When my husband informed the front desk upon checkout, they could not explain why he had been there and did not act like they cared too much about the inconvenience.

All in all, not a terrible experience and it did have some positives....but we won't be back, as there are so many other options around town.

My husband and I stayed at the Carriage House and it is absolutely amazing! We really enjoyed the private courtyard with the hot tub. We were always out there drinking coffee, soaking up some sun on the reclining chairs, and at night relaxing in the hot tub. The other thing we really loved was that it was a couple blocks off of Main St. where we did a lot of shopping and dining.
