For my wedding in July, we had many out of town guests to accommodate and we found this beautiful old home to be a better deal than placing everyone in hotel rooms in some impersonal hotel. We rented the entire home, so instead of running as a bed and breakfast, it was more of a house rental - which was...

This house was excellent for our extended family vacation needs, which we rented for five days. We had three floors all to ourselves, and used every bedroom. It was like living in a museum, and we were allowed to use everything. A fully equipped kitchen was available, and we did our own cooking. Stemware and china was in abundance. Laundry...

The Mansion on Main is an exquisite example of a Victorian era mansion. The rich architecture, elegant period furnishings, and Southern style hospitality make for an enchanting stay! Smithfield, itself, offers a good one-day diversion of antique hunting and a leisurely strolls in the Saturday Evening Post atmosphere of a quaint home town. But it is also within a short...

This is my response to the owners comments concerningbour stay at her b&b almost a year later. We did mention that the bed was uncomfortable but in all fairness, it was the following morning. As for being late for breakfast, that is an outright false statement and they know it. We were not late for breakfast. We requested 9am and...

Let me start by saying that the Mansion is very beautiful and it's easy to imagine Scarlett O'Hara coming down the stairs in her sweeping gown. The hostess, Dawn, was equally gracious and helpful. Unfortunately, that is where the good ends. The bed in our room was very firm and uncomfortable. The website does not mention that the bed is...

Since we have allowed plenty of time for this post to be amended for completeness, we need to provide more details of the story. Eventhough the couple refused the offer to prepare another entree and/or side dish since items had to be reheated, we still refunded the entire amount for both breakfasts. Their breakfast was prepared fresh that morning, but...

This was only the second B&B we had stayed. We enjoyed the house greatly. Dawn was very gracious host. She knew all about the history of the house and the impact on the community this house made in the day. Breakfast was good even though the waffles were a little dry :~).
