What People Are Saying..

 Give yourself the gift of nature! My husband and I recently had the privilege of being among the first people to experience the serene atmosphere that Temple in the Woods offers. The accommodations were cozy and inviting and our room was lovely with it's private bath and comfy bed. Oh, and the breakfasts! We are still talking about the delicious shrimp and grits we had during our stay! But no B&B experience would be complete without gracious hospitality! The owners made us feel right at home the minute we walked in the door. By the end of our stay, we vowed to come back and felt like we were saying goodbye to old friends!

Thank you, Claudette and Howard for a lovely experience! ~P Alli

It's often difficult to find a bed and breakfast that caters to my specific vegetarian diet. Claudette did that and more with her delicious creations. Not only was the food yummy but the calm and serenity at this wonderful retreat was a balm for my weary spirit.                      ~T Washington

 The most peaceful place you can wake up. And the food is outstanding!            ~S Taylor
