Lovers of old-fashioned, cozy B&Bs consistently fill the eight rooms at this graceful inn. The main house, with its wraparound porch, petite garden-ringed patio, and sunny breakfast room, is a lively gathering place for those wanting to socialize; but the spacious guest quarters—all with gas fireplaces, large modern baths, and elegant, chintz-upholstered Provençal furnishings—provide comfy solace for private types. Guests have access to the pool and spa at Lavender’s nearby sister property, Maison Fleurie; there’s also a fleet of free bicycles and a boules set (the French equivalent of boccie) for games on the lawn.
Room to Book: Room No. 7 has a private outdoor tub and patio as well as a separate entrance.
