This B & B met all our expectations for comfort and grand style.
The gardens were charming and the décor and ambience was spot on.
Our hosts Jim & Linda were friendly and helpful.
It was a bit further away from downtown Asheville than anticipated, and we were advised against walking back from town after 10pm, however we didn't have any problems parking and the cab service was prompt and inexpensive.
Breakfast was served with other guests sitting around a very grand table, and was most enjoyable.
Unfortunately, the shower in our room (we stayed in 'Margaret Grace') was terrible, with the water barely dribbling out, warm one minute and cold the next, and the 'fluffy towels' were about as absorbent as glass. If there is one thing travellers look forward to at the end of a long day, its a strong, hot shower. This was the only disappointment.
