Leave yourself behind as you enter The President. This one-story stone house is hidden behind a tall ornate gate. Hand-painted birds, flowers and figs set into the gate are the first sign that you are about to enter a gem.The gate opens onto a large stone courtyard surrounded by raised stone flower beds. A tall, shady tree sweeps above a mosaic tile floor that leads to a large wooden deck. Here you can relax in a blue rocking chair or perhaps you will choose the southern-style swing chair. An innovative wall fountain, designed by the creative innkeepers, offers a calming splash to this most tranquil courtyard. Two large wooden tables are perfect for outdoor dining and can seat up to 12 people. There is ample night lighting.
Enter the front door onto a kitchen. Dark wooden country-style wooden cabinets, brown granite counters and a brown stone floor offer warmth. There is an oven, full-size fridge, two sinks and cutlery, mugs and plates to serve six. Fully equipped, the kitchen offers an electric stove top, coffee maker, fry pan, plus urn , hotplate and tea lights for Shomer Shabbat guests. A kitchen table seats six comfortably.
