I am writing this review while relaxing on a covered porch overlooking the courtyard. A cooling breeze is making its way in from the mainland. The fountain is burbling away and a squirrel is making his way up and down the oak trees. If the Addison isn't on your bucket list, your list is wrong.
This is our 3rd visit to the Addison and this place keeps getting better. The Addison was our first BnB and we have tried others since, but nobody does it like Bob, Shannon, and Lee. New complimentary bikes have been added, various bits of decor are updated, and the already great menu has added more fresh ingredients. I didn't think the breakfasts could get better. I was wrong.
Every innkeeper should be begging this family to lead a seminar in how to do this right.
Keep up the fantastic work.
