This property was beautiful. My husband took me here for my birthday. The owners were very helpful with all the arraignments that he had planned, even to the one dozen of roses from a local florist sitting in the room when we arrived! Everything was beautiful. I will be looking forward to going back for another visit.

We stayed in the Cottage (first floor) for a weekend. We brought our child, so it was great that the owners accommodated that...enjoyed having a screened-in porch so much. The cottage was the perfect suite in the B&B to spread out & have privacy. Our kiddo slept on the small sofa, while we had our own separate bedroom. Comfortable bed,... More

Thank you for your comments. A good B and B is like staying in someone's home. In our case, we improved the experience by providing private entrances to our suites. Like a hotel or lodge there will be passing contact with others. We will put you in the Orleans Suite next time so you have less contact with others while... More

I desperately wanted to surprise my new wife with a romantic and relaxing getaway on our wedding night...Blue Willow certainly did not disappoint! We stayed in "The Cottage" suite.

We just finished our stay at the blue willow bed and breakfast and we have to say it was both romantic and relaxing.

“The King Suite on the second floor may be the most quiet but it seems the first floor offers more space & amenities.”

“One of my favorites is the Orleans, with its balcony and access to the screened porch located outside my other favorite, the Cottage. They each have their own thermostat and are large accomodations. The Plantation is smaller, but quite comfy.”
