Even after a big snow in the middle of February, I had a wonderfully relaxing long weekend thanks to the attention to details by John and Patty. The food was wonderful and I felt pampered throughout my stay. The local history lessons were a bonus.

Room was very nice and the breakfast was absolutely delicious! John's knowledge of the area and his "history lesson" were both very interesting! We'd stay again if the opportunity presented itself.

Wonderful southern hosts with a very interesting family background. Best tour of the house and gardens by Patty. Delicious breakfast and the grits were superb! Will visit again when I am the Raleigh area.

This property is beautiful and carefully cared for by the owners. Many bed and breakfasts feel "maintained"--this particular one feels like a home that is being lovingly shared.
