We stay ther quite often. We always have the best time. Relaxing and so much fun. Shopping and resturant are within walking distant. But going somewhere else to eat is beyound me. Food is the best in town.

Many B&B's have a sort of 'over-decorated' feel to them, as if you're staying with a grumpy aunt who won't let you put your feet up. Woodbine isn't one of those. It's an old hotel with an old-hotel feel -- the room had a firm mattress (like all American inns), but ample pillows compensated nicely. Nice flatscreen tv, wonderful creaky floors, high ceilings, that beloved, old wood smell.Even though I came late and looked to be the only guest, it was well-lit enough out back to allay any qualm I might have had about going up the back stairs to my room overlooking the courtyard. Lovely upper and lower lobbies -- spectacular dining room, and the breakfast! omg, words fail me when it comes to the best waffle I've ever eaten. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the email messages enlightening and concise. A bit pricier than a stay in a chain, but oh so much more pleasant. I'll be back, for sure.

We stayed for 2 nights and we're not sure what to expect. The best thing was the food. The breakfast was amazing! We also had Thanksgiving dinner and it was the best we have had in years! . The hotel is very nostalgic and quiet. . There were no children running around which is what we wanted. For the price, this is a hidden gem.
