Berea's Shady Lane Bed & Breakfast Compliment - Absolutely MARVELOUS stay!

Review by norrina on 2005-11-07
BEREA, KENTUCKY -- I recently had the opportunity to stay at Berea's Shady Lane Bed & Breakfast during a visit to Berea, KY, and it was a truly delightful experience.

I was welcomed warmly upon my arrival, shown to my room and invited to make myself at home. It was even inquired as to whether I had eaten, and I had just finished a supper, but I later noticed that their website advertises hor d'oeuvres served upon arrival. What a lovely touch.

When I awoke in the morning, I found a tray with orange juice, coffee, cream and sugar outside the door of my room. I carried my coffee with me down to breakfast, where I dined with the couple and their grandchildren staying in the other room. Mr. Webber prepared us some of the best waffles I have ever had! Mr. and Mrs. Webber effortlessly engaged us in conversation, and I found the "family style" dining experience quite refreshing.

All in all, I just had a simply fantastic trip, and I would heartily recommend Berea's Shady Lane Bed & Breakfast to anyone else planning a stay in the Eastern Kentucky area.

It sounds like maybe you work there?

OP here.

It is kind of sad that a person can't reference a positive experience somewhere without being suspected of basically spamming the boards. :-(

In any event, I do not now nor have I ever worked at this B&B, or any hospitality organization, for that matter. I just had a nice experience at a good price, and thought I could share.

I stand corrected! Did you visit the college while you were there?

Yes. I am a Berea College graduate; this was Homecoming weekend. :-)
