My husband and I recently went here for the first time. When we drove up, the first thing I noticed was the wrap around porch and the little white lights all over the trees in the spacious yard. A gazebo, beautiful benches and plants, the place was an oasis. We were running late to check in, but Phoebe (the owner) had cookies out and showed us around, encouraged us to help outselves to snacks in the kitchen. The place was spotless, but not sterile like some hotels can be. Breakfast includes healthy options as well as made to order home cooked meals. The atmosphere is casual and convivial. My husband and I were celebrating a special vent, and Phoebe went out of her way to include several 'extras' as a surprise! We are from Austin but wanted a spot close to home. We felt like we were miles away at this B & B. Out of towners (one guest from London) can get tips on places to go from the many tourist pamphlets available. Better yet, just ask Phoebe herself. The free wireless access and local calls are great, as the tv/video library (all free). However, you might find you won't need it. Just sitting on the porch at night with a book and listening to the crickets is relaxing. Somehow, the simple becomes exceptional at Carrington's. We plan on going back imminently and we were very sad to leave!\r
Ps- Don't forget to sign the 'guestbook' journal in your room when you leave. Even if you don't, it is fun to read the comments and stories of the people who stayed there before you.
Pros: Cozy extras, cleanliness and friendly hostess
