A Bed and Breakfast Review: 2 Sisters

This past weekend my Mama, Lu, and I took a girls' trip to Madison, IN.

We booked a room at the NEW 2 Sisters Bed and Breakfast on Second Street.

We were warmly welcomed by the 2 sisters themselves - Madonna and Mary. They were friendly ladies who made us feel right at home. We were happy and surprised to learn that they are from our hometown, Evansville. We all had fun seeing where we had all lived and people we had in common.

As the B&B is new, they opened July 4th weekend, they are currently running with just two guest suites open so there were only two other guests. We had actually taken a tour with them earlier in the afternoon so we were happy to get to know them better.

The suite we stayed in had three rooms and a hallway.

The first room was a nice sized room with its own closet. Two large windows helped the sunny yellow room to feel bright and airy. It had a bed to sleep two.

The second room was a little nook with a twin sized bed and closet. LucyAnne enjoyed having her own space down the hall.

Our bathroom was very interestingly decorated. It was copper and black themed. It was fun to have for a weekend but I don't think any of us would decorate with that particular style.

Our room opened onto our own porch. It was wonderful to sit outside on Sunday morning and to watch the town wake up.

In true B&B fashion, we settled right into friendships with the other guests and took each other on tours of our rooms. Their room was a beautiful blue and yellow themed suite. It had a large bed room, an equally large sitting room, and a nice sized bathroom.

The main floor of the B&B had a lovely parlor that the sisters supplied with books and magazines, a formal dining room, and a kitchen. We loved visiting with our hostesses as well as the other guests in these spaces.

For breakfast we enjoyed an apple french toast bake, bacon, muffins, and fresh fruit. The ladies also provided an array of coffee and fresh juice. It was wonderful and we were pleased to learn that they had accommodated all of the guests' special dietary needs.

We had a wonderful stay at 2 Sisters. We enjoyed the small group setting as well as delicious food. We were very happy to have hostesses who were friendly and well versed about the history of the building as well as knowledgeable about the area. They were able, and more than happy, to answer all of our questions. We were also happen to learn that they accept reservations far in advance and, unlike many B&Bs in the area, they DO allow children.

I would highly recommend 2 Sisters because of:
- The lovely sisters who own and run it
- The affordable cost of each of the spacious suites
- The wonderful snacks and meals that were provided
- The fact that they welcome children
