Fodor's Review

If your perfect vacation includes having a good book, warm fire, and soft bed, then this charming bed-and-breakfast is your dream come true. The brainchild of former Essence editor Monique Greenwood, the 1890s town-house-turned-guesthouse celebrates the richness of African-American literature. Each of the rooms is named and decorated in the spirit of one the genre's greats like Zora Neale Hurston, Toni Morrison, and Walter Mosley—and their prose is always on hand
