Best Places to Kiss

A Romantic Travel Guide

Innkeeper Graham Sheldon has created what is without a doubt one of the finest bed-and-breakfast experiences in town. The seven suites, all with private decks on Ashland Creek, have been designed in international themes from exotic to elegant, furnished with antiques and fine art, and given private entrances and kitchens.

The Matsu suite is a Japaneses-theme space with raised platform bed, antique tansu, Asian artwork, and views of the koi pond. If you’re looking for cozy and sweet, consider the Caribe suite, a Caribbean vision in white and pastel. It’s the smallest room, but also the sunniest. Or, for something truly exotic, we like the Marrakech, with its vaulted-ceiling king bedroom, Moroccan antiques, and oversize deck.

Wine-tasting weekends are a guest-only treat, and breakfasts are a three-course gourmet affair with fresh smoothies, seasonal fruit dishes, and main courses of frittatas or French toast with praline syrup.
