Bloomsbury Inn Review

Noted Civil War diarist Mary Boykin Chestnut wrote much of her famous account in this home—now a lovely 4-room inn—that was built in 1849 by her husband's family. Bedrooms are richly decorated with carved-wood or wrought-iron beds and fireplaces with antique mantels. The bathrooms are decorated with original Italian tiles from the 1930s. Breakfast is a divine extravagance that begins with a fruit course, includes homemade bread, and ends with an entrée such as freshly baked quiche with ham and asparagus.Innkeeper Bruce Brown's history tour of the home is fascinating.
