While I already had high expectations for my first B&B stay, Mike surpassed them. The Queen Anne is a gorgeous home located on a quiet street in the historic district. Our room, the Sir William, was decorated beautifully. Mike is very knowledgeable about the area and its history. He's also an excellent chef. We were "wowed" with breakfast the next morning. I'd love to return again. Right now, though, I have wonderful memories for my silver anniversary!

Mike was an awesome host and his breakfast was great. We stayed in the room with the jacuzzi. The bathroom was about the same size as the room itself. Good thing my lady and I are thin or we would have had trouble walking around the bed. Wallpaper was dark and scary.

It was a lovely home with a gracious and considerate host, Mike Reese. He made our stay so enjoyable with gourmet breakfasts and was very knowledgable about the area. He handled our requests with ease, but left our group with lots of privacy to enjoy the ambiance of the home.

My husband and I visited for our honeymoon (we stayed in the Lady Ashley room). The Queen Anne is charming and our host, Mike, prepared a tasty breakfast each morning. He was very personable and offered great suggestions for sightseeing. Our room was pleasant, though smaller than we expected (no real place to put the suitcase) and the mattress rolled you to the well in the center. The two-person whirlpool tub was wonderful! We would stay again, but I would choose a different room.
