Frommer's Review

This is the most sophisticated, elegant, and adult-oriented B&B in Winston-Salem, the kind that appeals to worldly business travelers and romantic couples. It occupies a pair of elaborately decorated and lavishly restored side-by-side West End Victorian houses, one built in 1895, the other 2 years later. We've rarely seen a bed-and-breakfast that's better accessorized than this one, or one with management as discreet and cooperative. Each house has richly decorated public rooms that look like pages from Architectural Digest, and each has lavish and whimsical furnishings that evoke the most charming aspects of the late Victorian Age. All but one of the rooms has a Jacuzzi that's designed for up to two friends at a time, and each has a state-of-the-art stereo system and access to a varied collection of movies. One of the houses has the largest and most up-to-date exercise room we've ever seen in a comparably small hotel, artfully tucked away into what might have originally functioned as a formal parlor. Local entrepreneur Ken Land, a man well-versed in the dining options of Winston-Salem, is your host.
