Nice little B&B in a quiet, country setting. Stayed in the Gone With The Wind room, which was very pretty. Shirley was a wonderful host and provided all kinds of information on the area. Although the inn is somewhat isolated from town, it is very convenient to I-85. Location would be excellent in warmer weather with Kerr Lake nearby. Food was fresh and well prepared.

Miss Shirley is a wonderful host and an excellent cook. The Kerr Lake area is very relaxing and great for fishing/hiking. Right off I-85, this is an attractive alternative to Quality Inn, etc.

The farmhouse is quaint and rustic outside, but pleasantly decorated on the inside. The rooms are small so we didn't have a lot of space for luggage. They accepted our dog and it was a wonderful outside area to walk her, plus it was very well air conditioned for her to stay behind when we were out and about. I like to sit outdoors on the porch, but the furniture was not very clean...perhaps because it was a farm...the "camp" area was very rustic, but fun to visit as it gave the history of the tobacco farm. Shirley is a welcoming innkeeper and served lovely breakfast to us.
