Thank you so much to the Innkeepers for their warm hospitality. They went above and beyond in accommodating our needs, down to playing with our little girls to give Mama peace to finish breakfast. Highly recommend this beautiful place to stay!

This was a home away from home filled with love and charm. We were so relaxed and at peace with the home setting, back yard, lake and beautiful home. Great breakfast and attention to details through and through.

Enjoyed the little special touches

B&B Country Garden Inn has all the amenities of home away from home - a tranquil garden setting, comfortable sleep, gourmet breakfast, and true southern hospitality.

My stay was excellent!

Sleeping arrangements (bed + room) were extremely comfortable and I am very particular. The innkeepers were cordial and accommodating without being too involved/friendly which is a fine line that they executed well. To suit my work plans, they served me an extra early breakfast, which they didn't have to do, but was very much appreciated!

Loved Our Stay Here!

Upon our arrival, we were greeted warmly by the Inn keeper and she was very helpful in helping us find a place to eat dinner. The town of Apex is a cute town and friendly community. We stayed in the Blue Bonnet Room and it was lovely. Breakfast was delicious!

This B&B was very comfortable. The Rose room was very spacious and a great view of the lake. Resident swan, Romeo, was a delight! What a lovely, relaxing stay.

Fabulous Experience for a Wedding Breakfast

4.6 on October 03, 2015

My sister and I hosted an "after the wedding" breakfast for my niece at this wonderful Bed & Breakfast in Apex NC. We could not have dreamed up a more lovely property NOR more wonderful Innkeeper and owner than Beth and Linda. They acted like an extension of family- polishing OUR silver, delivering our misplaced notebook to our hotel, helping us utilize all the areas of their property for our special occasion. We not only enjoyed the event, but we enjoyed putting it together with their help. The facility is more beautiful than the pics even show and the grounds are immaculate. We had such a marvelous experience that I would recommend this TREASURE SPOT for any occasion. This is the spot for your wedding or special occasion!!!!!!
