A Beautiful Bed & Breakfast - The Granville Queen Inn

I pray Hurricane Irene does little to damage the areas around the Albermarle Sound...especially the Granville Queen. Though we weren't able to stay there on our recent trip, we toured it before we headed out of town and found it to be everything you would dream of in a Bed and Breakfast. Its historic beauty, casual elegance, friendly innkeepers, exquisite antiques, central location in the heart of the historic district, manicured grounds and delicious menu couldn't possibly leave anyone disappointed. We hope to return one day, just to stay at the Granville Queen! Be sure to click on the link above to see it for yourself!

So grand!

Love the fire escape!

Beautiful grounds

Cozy porch makes you want to sit down and stay a while

 The sunny Victorian plantation porch is a perfect place for breakfast
Huge built-in china cabinet reflects antique chandelier from old movie theater downtown

Gorgeous is the only word to describe the ceiling downstairs
One of the beautiful guest chambers. Antiques are exquisite!

I pray you have a safe weekend as Irene makes her way up the east coast. We in NC are certainly taking precautions and will get back with everyone on Monday!


  1. I have never been to a B & B but you sure are making me want to go!!

  2. Linda,
    This place is exquisite!
    Thanks so much for such a great preview of it. I'm gonna have to ask you some more questions, as I'm quite intrigued and wonder if it might just be where we'd like to go for our anniversary?!
    what a lovely trip yall had!
