Our second stay in the Williams Rouse Suite at Willis Graves. My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at this amazing B&B. The innkeepers, Nancy & Bob, are truly welcoming, helpful, warm and interesting. The gourmet breakfast Nancy creates is delicious. My personal favorite, her Creme Brulee French Toast and homemade granola with fresh seasonal fruit. Willis Graves has set the bar high for our B&B expectations. We have not found their equal in comfort, ambience, breakfast, location and amenities for the price. Our suite was heavenly, from our private living room and deck to the indulgent double whirlpool & steam shower. The decor is beautiful and interesting. The 1850's cabin our suite is in has been beautifully restored and renovated. The best of both worlds. Nancy recommended a few local restaurants and spa. We loved our couples massage at Sableux, fabulous. The Tousey House Tavern and Bouquet Restaurant were unique, quaint with superior service and delectable food. The Willis Graves B&B definitely remains a favorite of ours for romantic retreats. Can't wait to go back!

We truly enjoyed our stay at Willis Graves. It was a wonderful place to get away for a few days and not be all that far from home. The owners and staff were exceptional, and you could easily see they truly enjoy what they do. The food is FANTASTIC!!! Thank you for a relaxing weekend we really needed!

We really enjoyed even a one night stay at the Willis Graves house. The room was beyond our expectations, and the breakfast was fantastic! Definitely will go back and try to stay longer.

We had a delightful weekend at this B&B. Beautiful, quiet place full of charm. It had all the comforts we needed and a breakfast second to none. Our hosts went above and beyond in helping us find civil war sites to explore. Hope to stay there again some day!

We stayed one night in the suite of the cabin and couldn't have been more comfortable. Nancy was so welcoming, and every touch was thought of - from the steam shower to the in-room espresso machine. We had a wonderful dinner around the corner at Tousey House Tavern, and enjoyed every minute of our stay!

While the room rate is a little pricey it is well worth the stay.

Such a lovely get-away! Couldn't have dreamed up a more beautiful place to escape to! High end amenities, luxurious linens & bathrobes, steam shower & whirlpool tub, even homemade cookies before bed! Not to mention a breakfast made from heaven! This inn provides all the comforts of home and the elegance of a five star hotel! Our second stay here, and we'll be sure to be back again!

My husband and I came here for a little mini-vacation. We stayed in the log cabin, which I heartily recommend. The room was beautiful: rustic and charming while still having all the modern conveniences you might want. The whirlpool was fantastic. The innkeepers were very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast we were served was absolutely delicious. I'm still having dreams about that creme brulee french toast. Overall the stay was absolutely fantastic. My only real gripe was that we were only left one and a half rolls of toilet paper for our entire stay, and running out at the end of the last day was not super fun. Oh, also the Tousey House Inn was given a glowing review by the staff, but when we went we were very disappointed: mediocre food at sky-high prices. So to sum up: Awesome inn. Order the creme brulee french toast. Skip the Tousey House. The cabin rooms are extra-special if you want some privacy.
