I cannot say enough about this wonderful B&B! My sister, mother and I stayed one night in the Family Suite upstairs - had our pick of 6 beds and private sitting area. Vicki is the perfect hostess, so warm, welcoming and personable - love her! She has thought of every detail to make guests feel at home, down to treats, personalized coffee mugs and earplugs :). Three different kinds of homemade biscotti (YUM) were waiting for us when we woke up, along with three mugs, each one with our first initials!! The fabulous three course breakfast included chicken and waffles which were out of this world, along with breakfast "banana splits", and a dessert. Vicki had asked us upon our arrival what time we'd like breakfast in the morning, so although there were two couples staying in the downstairs rooms, we were able to eat by ourselves in the dining room - I have never experienced a hostess at a bed and breakfast willing to stagger the meals so people can have privacy - loved it! What a nice touch!
The beds were very comfortable, and although it was over 100 degrees outside during our stay, the upstairs room stayed amazingly cool - the air conditioning works great (always a plus for those of us who over-heat easily in Texas!) My sister has asked for Vicki's detergent recipe because the sheets and towels smelled so great :).
We have discovered the perfect get away and look forward to returning in November for another girls weekend. And then it will be cool enough to enjoy breakfast on the inviting front porch :)
