    Cozy Chestnut Charm!

    I stayed in the Fireside Room, which is located in the mansion. Prior to my arrival, I called Barbara, the owner, & notified her that I would be arriving late. I was able to check in late with no issues. Barbara was kind enough to offer me directions to her B&B. Upon my arrival, the check-in went smoothly. The room I stayed in has a window A/C unit, & was cool. Barbara has a collection of menus from various restaurants around town. Several restaurants are within walking distance from the mansion. The Fireside Room is very spacious. The bed was comfortable. During my entire stay, it was very quiet, which I liked. Barbara arranged breakfast for me the following morning. Juice, water, coffee, thick cut & crispy bacon, an apple streusel muffin, & eggs with tomatoes & herbs. Everything was delicious! I enjoyed my stay at the bed & breakfast. The mansion has a lot of charm, & the garden is absolutely beautiful. Barbara is a gracious host, & I hope to stay at the mansion again.

    A nice retreat.

    The location was in a nice setting, service was great, breakfast was excellent but a TV would have been nice.

    This was a very quiet and enjoyable stay. I wanted peace and quiet and that's what I got. The breakfast was amazing. Barbara was a very congenial and helpful proprietor. Would recommend it to anyone who wants: unique, quiet, and a restful experience. Loved the "old time" feeling. Not a cold and unassuming hotel. If you want really "modern" this is not the right hotel for you. This took me back to the late 1800's.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Our room had no air conditioning, outside of house is in bad shape, painting peeling off, host said she hasnt put in window air conditioning in all the rooms yet, blinds wouldnt close to block some sun, she said she did have a room with air but it would cost $55 more per night even though it stated room had air conditioning, she wouldnt let us move room eventhough noone was staying in the room with air unless we paid more, she gave us a fan and we bought another fan, she would go into our room when we left to go somewhere and shut the fans off and left our door wide open! Water in room never got hotter than lukewarm. So disappointed and felt very taken advantage of. Her overall demeanor was odd and rude. Would not recommend ever staying here!!!

    Located at the top of a long hill in a beautiful neighborhood overlooking the town of Atlantic. Lots of gorgeous trees and winding streets through a mixture of turn-of-the-century and mid-century homes. Chestnut Charm is the grand dame, poised regal back from the street in a swell of beautiful trees. An old lived-in mansion that wears her wrinkles well. A delightful place to sleep and from which to explore old Atlantic—and by all indications—is well worth exploring, especially the old neighborhoods and downtown area. Who knew?

    We had a lovely stay. There was good food and good fun in the area. The room was clean and comfy and Barbara was a delight to get to know.

    Disappointing for a B&B.

    Good breakfast. Outside areas and landscaping in dismal condition. Table setting clean but the room was very dirty - dead or dying plants, dust, cobwebs, spiders and dirty windows with a view of unkept yard. Kitchen area very cluttered and dirty. Way too much work for one person and it shows it.

    Walnut Antique Walk Weekend.

    We spent two nights at the Chestnut Charm B&B. Our experience was very enjoyable. Our suite in the carriage house was beautiful. The decor was charming, the huge bathroom was amazing. Breakfast was served with care and enthusiasm, it is obvious that Barbara loves what she does. We asked for directions and suggestions of where to eat - her directions were spot on and her suggestions were very excellent. If ever in the area again we will definitely stay at the Chestnut Charm B&B.

    Beautiful home and room. Owner's attitude ruined our stay. Be sure to read descriptions of rooms closely. If it just says private bath that means there is no shower.
