We love the Ascot house, couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay in Marietta! The house is gorgeous and we were well taken care of. I would've given all outstanding but it wouldn't let me check that box for some reason...

We stayed here for a weekend April 15th. They met us for an early check in which was extremely nice of them. We loved the room and they also gave us an adjoining for our daughter for FREE. This way she didn't need to sleep on the sofa bed and would have her own bathroom. That was a nice surprise. Every employee was SUPER nice and helpful. We will absolutely stay here again when we are in town. Thanks so much!

Innkeeper Response
So glad everything worked out nicely for you, will look forward to seeing you on your next visit

Another great stay

This was our second stay with Wendy and it was as delightful as the first. Wendy is a wonderful hostess with a wealth of information about the area and what to do and not to do. Stayed on the third floor this trip and the room was just as simply elegant as the first. This is the best B&B we have visited and the only one we will visit multiple times. You need to enjoy Wendy's garden when you are there.


Very Nice

4.2 on May 19, 2015

Wendy is fabulous. Just a doll. Made everything wonderful and the food was delicious. Gardens lovely. Just a note if you have problems with stairs be sure to check the floor that your room is on.
