The Manor at Twin Oaks Bed and Breakfast

During our visit to Murfreesboro, Tennessee we stayed at a wonderful bed and breakfast -  quite possibly our favorite of all the ones we've stayed at over the years!
This lovely home is located a few miles outside of town.  However, it was originally located in downtown Murfreesboro where it was built in 1886.
Doyle and Cindy Boyd purchased the house in 1983 and proceeded to do the impossible.  Under Doyle's direction the house was cut into seven pieces and moved to their farm, Twin Oaks.
After many years of hard work they opened it to guests just two years ago.
Our lovely hostess, Cindy, was the epitome of southern hospitality as she checked us in and showed us around.
Each guest room has a different theme and I had chosen Southern Nights.  I loved my choice!
All the guests rooms are located on the second floor.
You could watch other guests arrive from the second floor veranda.
Cindy encouraged me to take all the photos I wished so I snapped a few of the guest rooms that were not yet occupied.  This is the Seaside room.
Our host's love for Arizona is displayed in the Sundown room.
Or perhaps you'd like something a little more exotic in the Shangri-La room.
Then we headed downstairs for more photos.
The Boyds had spent time in the military stationed at Fort Huachuca, Arizona and brought home few of the treasures displayed in the living room.
The living room opened to the dining room where the tables were already set for breakfast.
After a very restful night's sleep we headed to the back porch with coffee cups in hand to await breakfast.
If you're quiet you might spot wild turkey or deer.  (We weren't quiet enough!)
All too soon it was time to head inside.
We had already scarfed down a delicious plate of scones and pumpkin bread when Hubby reminded me that I was supposed to take pictures!
Blueberry pancakes topped with vanilla ice cream were beyond delicious.  Who knew?!
Doyle and Cindy had made us feel like we were welcome friends in their home and we hated to say good-bye.  If we are ever back in the area we will definitely make this the place to stay!  For more info on this wonderful bed and breakfast check out their website at  You'll be glad you did!
