The home is clean and comfortable, but isnt very interesting. It has modern ammenities such as wifi and cable. Without a hostess you are on your own to "hang out". Breakfast was very nice and the wait staff and house keeper were friendly.

This was a really cute B&B, with very clean and well kept facilities, located right on Cane River and just a few blocks from downtown nightlife and restaurant. The only "complaint" we had was that when we got up to go to breakfast at 8:30 (which was Delicious!), housekeeping went into our room, took all of our towels except one...

Breakfast is fabulous. Diet before you come. Back porch is wonderful. Only issue is that the pillows are hard. Breakfast is served at 0830 sharp and is several courses. Back porch looks out on the Cane River

This was our second time to stay in the Steamboat Room at the Violet Hill Bed and Breakfast! The staff is so sweet and the breakfast was wonderful! We also enjoyed their porch and swinging in the cool breeze. This is such a special place. We will be back again.

This was our first stay at a bed and breakfast. We had a great time. The room was quaint and cozy. The meals were excellent. I never had dessert for breakfast! The lake behind the inn is beautiful. It was very quiet and peaceful. Overall a great experience.

Gorgeous property, beautifully furnished interiors, clean, comfortable, reasonable rates. Very hospitable. If you don't see something you need, just ask. Delicious breakfast. Only a couple blocks away from quaint shops and restaurants. The back porch and dock were our favorite spots. So serene and quiet. We stayed in the John Reavls room which has its own double door entrance out...

Waterfront with two covered piers. Lots pf parking with magnificent rooms and food. Very accommodating and setup for late arrivals. In a nutshell, it would be hard to find a better B&B anywhere. I have to have 200 hundred characters (not 194) and it can't be in ALL CAPS...S0.....
