Fodor's Review

Noted Civil War diarist Mary Boykin Chestnut wrote much of her famous account in this house, which was built in 1849 by her husband's family. Now, in the current inn, the four rooms are richly decorated with carved-wood or wrought-iron beds and fireplaces with antique mantels. The bathrooms are decorated with Italian tiles from the 1930s. The extravagant breakfast begins with a fruit course, includes homemade bread, and ends with an entrée such as freshly baked quiche

with ham and asparagus. The innkeeper, Bruce Bruce, can give a fascinating tour of the house.
