Cool Mansion but Big Disappointment. I took my wife to this bed and breakfast for V-Day with the expectation that this would be a romantic evening. However we were extremely disappointed with the level of service, not one employee smiled at us during our whole visit and made us feel like we were imposing and not the guest. However, my biggest complain was the sub-par breakfast. Spending a lot of money for a bed and breakfast I expected that I would be served breakfast but instead we had a buffet with over salty cheese grits, grocery store pastries and horrible coffee. The house itself was pretty neat with a lot of cool furniture, the gardens would have been much better during a summer-stay.
Romantic Getaway. Elegant with beautiful gardens & gorgeous neighborhood. We stayed in 2 rooms (3 nights). The Nisbet Room (fanciest) had been double-booked for the first night. They put us in a different room for free for one night & brought champagne. 1st room was on the 3rd floor & was not that great. There was a roof window, but we couldn't see out it very well. The Nisbet Room was all we had expected!! Beautiful!!! Huge with gorgeous furnishings & a screened-in porch (shared with the room next door), complete with a porch swing. Breakfast included. Some of the staff had impeccable customer service & others just weren't up to par for that level of accomodations. There may likely be a party or reception on a weekend night. They allow children -- so you may hear kids if you stay in the cheaper rooms on the 3rd floor.
