Based on advice of others on here, chose this as a nearby (about 30 miles) getaway spot. Beautifully, genuinely decorated large home with nice rooms with all the trimmings. Breakfast was tasty and fresh. Very clean and well-maintained and hosts are very pleasant. Nice touch is that a few good restaurants and bars are within walking distance, and that was...

The Whistling Swan is a beautiful bed and breakfast that features all the gorgeous woodwork, details, nooks and crannies, and little hidden architectural secrets a B&B Aficionado comes to expect. The new owners have taken the long-time B&B and expanded on a gorgeous piece of property and are continually improving the rooms, lawns and gardens. We were there for a...

Little pricey but great fun for a special occasion. Stayed in the Walnut Room with jacuzzi. Clean, beautiful and spacious. Roz is wonderful and the breakfast is worth the trip. Would probably stay in the next room category down but was not available the night we went. Would like to return again and explore the area.

This was our second time at The Whistling Swan and once again it was absolutely magical. We stayed here last March for our 20th anniversary and fell in love with the romantic charm that is in every detail here.

Just returned from a fabulous "stay-cation" at the Whistling Swan. Everything was fantastic, from the service, to the room, to the breakfasts. It was a perfect location for a little R&R and to get some time away from the kids.

Thank you so much for the kind words. It was delightful having you both as my guests; I particularly loved talking about Alabama as well as Milton's breakfast witticisms.
