Step Back in Time
Posted Oct 14, 2015
This was a wonderful surprise. I cannot describe how special this guest house is, but I will try. The furnishings were so perfect-I honestly felt like I was a guest in an old friend's childhood home. Nothing felt "old" , rather I felt as though I had stepped back in time-everything was in such beautiful condition it seemed as though the antiques were back in the era in which they were new (I hope that makes sense). The neighborhood surrounding the Allison House is wonderful - I seriously do not think I would have been surprised to see Atticus Finch walking down the street. The home owners were so lovely, they were available yet never in any way intrusive. The dining room was always beautifully set for breakfast which is served every morning at 8AM. There is a note in your room asking that you please let the owners know if you will not be there because this is a real breakfast prepared daily. In the evening guests are welcome to relax in the dining room with complementary sherry and biscotti. The sherry is in a decanter on the sideboard, with little etched crystal sherry glasses and the biscotti is in a delft blue ginger jar. All of this an classical music playing very, very softly in the background. Just a lovely, lovely experience. I HIGHLY recommend the Allison House.
