Pros: Country House was simply wonderful. As soon as we walked in, the scent of fresh baked cookies and bread filled the air. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious with made to order requests. The room was quiet and peaceful-we stayed in the Victoria room and had no trouble falling asleep. Lastly, Country House is just a short walk away from the popular State Street and Funk Zone - we walked everywhere!
Cons: Though very peaceful and quiet, some light music (something acoustic, like Spanish guitar) in the morning during breakfast would have been a nice touch. It was so quiet my fiancé and I felt like we had to whisper over French toast and eggs.

Pros: Nice bed and close to State St and lots of restaurants. Breakfast was fantastic.
