Fabulous Experience for a Wedding Breakfast

4.6 on October 03, 2015

My sister and I hosted an "after the wedding" breakfast for my niece at this wonderful Bed & Breakfast in Apex NC. We could not have dreamed up a more lovely property NOR more wonderful Innkeeper and owner than Beth and Linda. They acted like an extension of family- polishing OUR silver, delivering our misplaced notebook to our hotel, helping us utilize all the areas of their property for our special occasion. We not only enjoyed the event, but we enjoyed putting it together with their help. The facility is more beautiful than the pics even show and the grounds are immaculate. We had such a marvelous experience that I would recommend this TREASURE SPOT for any occasion. This is the spot for your wedding or special occasion!!!!!!

Keep up the good work!

The Innkeepers were very welcoming. The property was beautiful, and the room was lovely and very relaxing. The complimentary wine was exceptional. The home and grounds are simply serene!

The weekend was great and such a blessing. The Inn was so appropriate for our group. The atmosphere was calm and quiet, so peaceful. The Innkeeper's kindness will not be forgotten. I had a new experience in riding the paddle boat. I wish I could have stayed longer! Thank you and God Bless.

Perfect location!

We attended an event here and the location was perfect and the inn keeper was the perfect host. She made our stay even more pleasant.

Very pleasant stay

We celebrated Mother's Day with a trip to Plants Delight Nursery, and stayed in the Rose Room. It was very enjoyable, and the host and hostess (Tom and Linda?) were equally enjoyable. Recommend the B&B highly.

We celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary at this Inn and the Innkeepers were the perfect hosts! We stayed in the Rose room which was lovely, and our breakfast couldn't have been better! Our stay was very special.

My daughter and I had a delightful stay. The room was lovely and we were greeted with smiles and warm cookies! Everything was comfortable, quiet and wonderful. I wish we could have stayed longer and can't wait to return. Breakfast was sooo good.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for the kind words. The innkeepers told me you had a great time. And aren't those signature cookies the best? We look forward to seeing you again in the near future.

Just right!

My husband and I were in Apex for a barbecue competition and didn't want to stay in a motel. The Country Garden Inn was just right. Our room was beautiful and the pond was a great place to unwind after a hot day in town. The swan was an unexpected treat; very relaxing to sit in the swing and watch. Our breakfasts were especially good! And our hosts were so welcoming. If we return to this competition again, we know where we will stay!

At home at the Inn

My husband and I will never stay in another hotel in the Raleigh area as long as there is a room available at the B&B Country Garden Inn. From the first phone call, I knew I had met a new friend. They went above and beyond in accommodating our requests. We were genuinely welcomed upon our arrival and settled into our room with perfect hospitality. Our room was clean, nostalgic and spacious. There were freshly baked cookies on the desk. And the bed was so comfortable, I almost didn't get up for breakfast in the morning. Breakfast was served in the sun room... the presentation was beautiful, the taste was exceptional, and to top it all off the service was outstanding. We really felt at home and wished that we didn't have a full day time schedule while we were there so we could spend more time at the Inn. Looking forward to our next visit!!
