My husband and I are from California and we rondezvoused with my parents, who live in Texas, at Eve's Garden in Marathon. We all had an absolutely delightful stay, which started the second we walked up to the front door and lasted until we regretfully had to be on our way the next morning after enjoying the beautifully prepared breakfast. Kate, the proprietor, made a specially prepared gluten free quiche for my mother and myself which was fantastic! The B&B is tended by people who obviously have a love of beauty, an eye for detail, and a playful spirit. For instance, a small knick in a drawer in a pretty antique chest was charmingly mended with a little carved mouse peeking out of the flaw -- too cute! There is a delight for the eye in every nook and every cranny. The art is lovely and abundant and the garden is a paradise. This is a true find! We also stayed at the Gage Hotel, which is charming, but the next time we get back to the area, we will choose to stay at Eve's Garden the whole time. We loved it!
