Beautiful property and lovely home

5 on April 10, 2016

This property sits on 300 gorgeous acres with 5 ponds. We stayed in the Prince Albert room and it faces east with a beautiful balcony. It was gorgeous to wake up to the sun streaming in and sit on the balcony, listening to the birds and watching the mist rise off the pond. Angie is a delightful, smart, and lovely host! My husband and I thought it would be a wonderful place to get married all over again. It's truly a hidden gem that is about 35 minutes to Columbia. The room was very comfortable, and we could control the HVAC to our needs. Angie has some lovely little ducks and a quaint chicken coop. The koi pond is relaxing spot as well. Other guests were staying in a separate cottage, and they had a wonderful fire going by the pond. It was a quick vacation away from the hustle/bustle of Atlanta. Absolutely lovely!

Delightful Stay with Angelina

Welcome Home away from Home! Beautifully set on 300acres of rolling land and surrounded by hills and woods, this place is just breathtaking. I was greeted by Angelina and her two babies (Fox Terrier and Pomeranian) and enjoyed a relaxing chat in the appointed living room. Surrounded by Victorian elegance, you have no idea you are not sitting in a renovated plantation estate. She showed me around the BnB and I was escorted to my room which was elegant and had every convenience and more than expected. A view of the Cottage by the Pond and fountain splashed pool is the perfect view to enjoy while sipping a cup of coffee or glass of wine. Breakfasts are better than any restaurant. Angelina's creativity included a freshly baked ham and cheese soufflé with a cheese fondue drizzle; a fluffy bacon, sausage and cheese quiche; a veggie omelet and fruit parfait and the list goes on....not all the same day. Just know that her surprise is that you will be surprised every morning and she works around your schedule so that you start your day perfectly. I toured the property on her Gator and was introduced to her pet chickens that reside in the TajMahal of coops and goodness knows what will join the property by my next visit! If planning to host a reunion, a wedding, a romantic getaway or just a place to will not be disappointed.

What a wonderful Bed & Breakfast! We stayed here when our daughter got married last week. Our room was absolutely beautiful! By the time we left I felt like I made a new friend and Angie was just awesome! We walked this beautiful property and truly enjoyed the peace! Would highly recommend staying here!
