Nineteenth-century charm meets modern-day comfort in this plantation-style home. The property sits atop Quality Hill in the town which once was a busy river port in the 1800s. The wide-plank heart-pine flooring, from a cotton gin near Dallas, provides a soft backdrop to the inn's antiques. Relax on the sofa in the library to gaze at clouds painted on the ceiling 30 feet overhead. In the morning, enjoy coffee and biscotti on one of three porches. Then move to the dining room and partake of a three-course breakfast, featuring such delicacies as yogurt parfait, artichoke quiche and mulberry almond coffee cake.Publicity and Awards: Southern Living, Dallas Morning News, Texas Highways, Houston Chronicle, LA Times, Named one of the "Top 10 Texas Retreats" by (May 2007)., Shreveport News, AAA 3 diamond award since 1999, Best Recipes from American Country Inns and Bed and Breakfasts, Texas Bed & Breakfast Cookbook.Location: Small town.
