Checkin was smooth was email and information sent. Parking is in the back. This was by far one of the largest rooms for a B&B. Sitting room, bed room, and a large bathroom with a long counter. The bed was solid with plenty of pillows.

Little touches include fresh rose and carnation in the bathroom.

We ate a lovely dinner at Gallaghers in town. Get there early. The grilled salmon is excellent.

We did a 30 minute drive on Bluff Road to Fort De Chartes, a large French fort from the 1700s. We always hear the English history and the guides there explained the French side. Breakfast was OJ or peach mango from Dole. Sausage, Dole tropical fruit mix, and the special pecan Texas toast with was delightful. Ed and Kathi are one of the few host who join you in the meal.
