I'll qualify this review by saying we generally do not like B&B's. Friends had booked this Inn for a weekend trip with three couples. We reluctantly went along and were pleasantly surprised with how lovely our stay was. We were greatly warmly by Jasmine and shown our room and filled in on the details of the Inn. Our room, on the Courtyard level (NOT the basement!!) was nicely decorated. Breakfast the next morning was a choice of either a hot entree or oatmeal. Fruit is always included and the coffee is plentiful. Tea is offered in the afternoon and is lovely.
The Inn is close enough to walk to the waterfront area and also the opposite direction to the Mercer Williams House (a must see) and Forsythe Park. The Juliette Gordon Low house is next door and well worth touring.
We did find that the windows in our room were not functional and we were quite warm at night. Our friends were on the third floor and had windows that opened, which cooled them sufficiently. That's a pretty small complaint. :)
Overall, it is a lovely Inn. I especially liked the fact that the owner is NOT on site. We have often stayed at B&B's with overly enthusiastic owners who practically stalk you throughout your stay. Such is NOT the case at the Ballastone. The staff who are present are thoroughly professional and very nice. Perfect place for couples and friends travelling together. We loved it.
