"Charming"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
This Inn is so quaint. It's got that wonderful southern charm and they know how to take care of the important things. It's got plenty of room to accomodate a wedding and it's just your wedding happening not multiple so you feel like you own the place. Everyone that works there is so easy going and very attentive. To top it off they have a very impressive breakfast that is cooked by a chef and it's high quality and some organic foods. All included in the price.
