This beautiful two story antebellum home was built in 1845. In the 1930's, the home was converted into a boarding house. Quite often, due to the inexpensive rent, newlyweds occupied the apartments. As time passed, many of these young couples conceived and had their children while living here. Consequently the townspeople coined the phrase "The Hatchery" for the "hatching" of the babies.
The present day innkeepers, Jan and Larry Jabara, have named each room after someone, who has had a significant part, present or past, in this marvelous antebellum home. They have filled each room with antiques and remodeled each guest room to be inviting, relaxing and tranquil. You can enjoy fireplaces, in room Jacuzzi bathtubs, special blend coffee, local wine and candy, scents from the candle shop and homemade soaps. There is a new Jacuzzi spa outside under the southern antebellum porch in back with quaint seating all around the house inside and out.
