with identical sweeping stairways. You will know the B&B by the American flag hanging outside.
The staff of the B&B are as welcoming, as is the décor. You ring the doorbell and are swept into the front parlor. It was still decorated for Christmas when we arrived on the 5th of January.
There are several comfortable chairs clustered in front of the fireplace. There is a sideboard where you will find iced tea and snacks when you return in the afternoon. That first afternoon the treats offered were pecan bars, on subsequent days we were treated to lemon bars, chocolate pound cake and orange cake. Hot tea and coffee is also available. I loved to grab a glass of iced tea to take up to my room.
There are 15 non-smoking rooms, all with private baths. We had the two rooms on the third floor. The stairs are not for the faint of heart but it was well worth it to have the whole floor to ourselves. Al and I had the Parkview room
and Joe had the Yellow room. They were very similar is size and style. We had a fireplace (non-working) in our room, and Joe had an extra chair. Both rooms were tastefully decorated and immaculate. The beds were comfortable, covered in a quilted coverlet, and although we were on the street side, I never heard a sound. The bathroom was small but certainly adequate, with a tub and shower combination. We had a huge walk-in closet with an iron and ironing board. An armoire held our TV with had remote control and cable. There was plenty of reading light. The wood furniture was covered with plexiglass, giving me no qualms about putting down my iced tea glass.
Breakfast is served from 8 to 10am. There is homemade granola everyday and fresh nut bread. You can always order eggs, and another choice of the day is offered. It may be eggs Benedict, buttermilk pancakes, or orange-pecan waffles. Breakfast seating is family-style, and we met some very interesting people each morning. There are three tables inside, and there are small tables on the back deck.
Parking is on the street, and after 4pm check-in, you are given a parking pass for the duration of your stay.
This is a charming and warm bed-and-breakfast, and I would love to return. A special thanks to Pamela for making us feel so welcome.

We never learned the cat's name, but he didn’t belong to the inn, since they booted him out when he escaped our room and ran down the long stairs to the public area on the first floor. But the cat came back.
