  • Gardens

    Penniman - A Bed and Breakfast Deck & Gardens

    Stepping off the back deck, you'll enter the beautiful garden areas that Carey has designed and maintained. The restful hickory twig chairs, tucked into the curved wall of the small garage, overlook the private table setting where guests can enjoy a quiet breakfast weather permitting.

    Penniman - A Bed and Breakfast Wraparound Porch

    This wraparound porch is Carey's pride and joy. It is what first enticed her to explore this property. From spring to late fall our guests enjoy their breakfast under the soft, white clouds painted on the Victorian blue ceiling.
