This is a quaint, family-owned B&B comprising an early 1800s cotton planter’s home and brick carriage house. The third floor rooms are most spacious (no elevator), with a deck and lounge, while the carriage house rooms are more compact, but still pleasant and very clean, with canopied beds, antiques, local artwork, and oriental rugs. Breakfasts are huge and tasty, with specialties like sausage pie, the signature raspberry French toast, and ham frittata with Mornay sauce. Afternoon tea (4–6pm) comes with addictive brownies and chocolate chip cookies. The location is fine, a 5- to 10-minute walk from everything, and your hosts are a font of local knowledge. The free parking can be tight, so get here early if you can (bigger vehicles should make other arrangements; there’s a public parking garage less than 2 blocks away for $15). Note that there is a 2-night minimum on weekends and holidays, and that reservations made 14 days or more in advance will require a deposit by check, not credit card.
