Southern Hospitality
Whether you are here for business or leisure, you deserve to stay some place quiet, comfortable and safe. Our bed and breakfast will pamper you while you take care of business or sight see. Sink down in one of our Queen or King beds, wrapped in a soft down comforter. Sip a refreshing cup of tea while you watch the evening news. Fill up on crunchy Belgium waffles, fresh orange juice and plump red strawberries with whipped cream before you start off in the morning. Or, if you prefer, get started with a hearty breakfast of scrambled eggs and bacon or heart healthy yogurt, granola and fresh fruit. And, by the way, we can make arrangements for you to have a relaxing massage in the comfort of your own room........just ask!
