Blooming Garden Inn Review

With its yellow exterior and lush gardens, this B&B is literally and figuratively a bright spot in the Holloway Historic District. Inside, the inn explodes with color and warmth, thanks to exuberant hosts Dolly and Frank Pokrass. Your gourmet breakfast might be walnut crepes with ricotta cheese and warm raspberry sauce. At the Holly House, a restored Victorian home across the street, the Pokrasses accommodate extended stays.
