This was my second stay at Bisland House, and this time was just as great as the first. This visit was for a relaxed weekend getaway, which this B&B was great for. It is a short, pleasant walk over to shopping (lots of antique shops), dining, riverfront, other historic/cultural sites, and antebellum homes (e.g. Stanton Hall, Rosalie- 2 that we walked to). You can then come back and enjoy sitting on the front porch or balcony after grabbing a fresh-baked cookie and coffee-- or sit in the living area and take in the beauty and history of the house and the artwork and pictures. We found the picture album of the house through the years, with improvements the current owners have made, to be interesting (I'm a nostalgic, sentimental type!). This time we stayed in Jessie's Room, which was roomy- with an extra bed as others have noted. It was just as nicely decorated, warm, and welcoming as the rest of the house.
Last time (October 2011) we stayed here during the Balloon Fest (which is a must!). Even with a large festival and crowds in town and in all the restaurants, Bisland House was like a warm, relaxing retreat. We were in Michelle's Room for this stay, which is a smaller room, but I loved the decor and feel of this room.
Both times- the house was immaculately clean, beds comfy, and the sheets super soft, as another review mentioned, and hostess very welcoming and helpful! Everything you need is available, and if you have a problem or need something (which I didn't)- the atmosphere is such that you can feel welcome to ask. Provided are lists of things to do and places to eat- with suggestions and descriptions. The breakfast was delicious, restaurant quality (an egg/sausage souffle, brown sugar bacon, fresh fruit), and Christine made sure we knew that she would accommodate any dietary preferences or needs.
