Our historic 19th century antebellum mansion with lush “banana tree” courtyard and individually themed rooms is steeped with Southern charm and hospitality, while providing all the modern conveniences, including free WiFi throughout the premises, Free Parking, and a complimentary and ample cooked-to-order Southern style breakfast.
