This bed and breakfast is one of the best I have visited. They definitely take the bed and breakfast business to a higher level. The attention to detail is obvious. They offer a social hour. Perfect while you enjoy the great view.I strongly recommend this bed and breakfast.

This place is just GREAT. We stayed 2 nites on way back to Charlotte and could have stayed 10. From the greeting by Lisa, to the Chef, Mitch, and in fact all treated us great. I never imagined a B AND B could be this much a terrific experience. Very much will return and would recommend.
