Colonial Gardens B&B stay

3.8 on June 30, 2014

Innkeeper was nice and accommodating. Not quite the luxury you would expect for the price. Very small bathroom that looked like it was the original and had never been updated. Was very clean and well kept but just a little deceiving website.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you of your reveiw and we are so glad you enjoyed Jennifer's hospitality. I am sorry you were disappointed in our rooms we certainly do not want to deceive anyone which is why I wonder if you actually saw our website, In fact most folks comment on how the bed and breakfast looks just like the web site. We do hope you will try us again in the future.

The Romantic Getaway

5 on June 20, 2014

The room was very nice and looked like the picture on the website. The innkeeper was very friendly and was very flexible if you needed something different than the norm. She was a pleasure to meet and talk to. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the service was spectacular. We would definitely stay again if we visit the area.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so very much for your kind review! We try hard to please. We know when you go away you want as many comforts of home as you can have and a pleasant innkeeper as well. Jennifer, our assistant innkeeper, is a gem! I will make sure she see this review. Hope to see you again soon... Karen

Best Place ever!!

5 on January 31, 2014

My Husband and I stayed here during our honeymoon!! It was the best stay ever! Mrs. Karen can cook an amazing breakfast! I am not usually an early riser but I got up every morning just to have breakfast with her! She learns about her guest. During breakfast she discovered I wasn't a big egg eater, therefor she lowered the amount of eggs on my plate! Colonial Gardens made our honeymoon perfect! I will defiantly be staying again!!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your kind review! So glad your honeymoon was just what you wanted.

Pleasant Stay

4.2 on January 22, 2014

We really enjoyed the atmosphere of this B&B, especially at Christmas. Hot drinks and snacks were waiting for us when we arrived. The breakfast was delicious. The room was very comfortable (the bed and atmosphere), though we would probably upgrade to a larger room next time. We were in the Library. A little disappointed by the bathroom (small pink tub and pink toilet/sink). But not a huge deal to us. I'm sure the gardens would be beautiful in the Spring.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your kind review! I am so glad you were comfortable. The library is our smallest and least expensive room but we do note that on our website for booking purposes. The bathroom is done in granite and tile and although it is a lighter coral color it is definitely not pink. It must have been the lighting.

Truly one of the nicest places we have ever stayed

5 on August 29, 2012

I fancy myself a decerning traveler, more interested in the details then the look of an establishment. We could not have been happier while we stayed with Karen and Ron at Colonial Gardens. To start with the rooms were beautiful and well appointed. Sheets were high end and felt very soft. The breakfasts each morning were different and delicious. The atmosphere of Colonial Gardens was causal while retaining its elegant backdrop. if you can not tell by now, we were impressed to say the least. We will be back again.

Thank you so much for your kind review! Your opinion does matter to us!

Outstanding Service and Value!

5 on August 21, 2012

We spent the weekend with some friends at Colonial Gardens and we had a wonderful time. The rooms were spacious and beautiful and the hostess was amazing. The food was fabulous, we especially liked that Karen made us by request, Eggs Benedict and it was perfect. Karen went out of her way to help us make reservations for dinner and at a local spa. We are already planning next years visit here.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your kind review! We are so glad it was everything you wanted!

What a wonderful wedding!

5 on July 21, 2012

This was my first time at a bed and breakfast, but I can't imagine how it could have been better! We had our elopement ceremony here, with our parents and baby girl. The house is cozy and beautiful, and Karen was just wonderful from the first phone call; She took care of every last detail of the wedding, and seemed to anticipate everything we would possibly need. All that we had to do was show up and enjoy. Also, that was the best breakfast that I've ever had. We're looking forward to coming back for an anniversary. Thank you for such a wonderful stay!
