"My husband and I have the most wonderful time with Freeman and Paula (inn keepers). They know how to entertain, and do an excellent job at making you feel like you are at home. We can't wait to go back to visit. The hospitality was excellent, house was clean as a whistle, room was warm and the bed was cozier than mine at home. I am so glad we found their home."
"This was the best bed and breakfast experience ever! The food and southern hospitality were amazing! If you're looking for a realxing atmosphere and a beautiful view, this place is excellent!"
