Enticing and good-value B&B close to River Street in an excellent, central location ideal for exploring the city on foot. The property dates back to 1852, when it was completed for trader Edward Padefford as a simple commercial building (the last cotton merchant closed in 1910). Today the comfortable rooms inside feature old-fashioned wooden beds, exposed brick walls, and beautiful furniture. Rooms at the front have the best views, but note that the street is busy and can be noisy. Dog-owners love this place because it boasts six pet-friendly rooms.
