We have been three times lucky staying at Sidwell & Friends Bed & Breakfast! We have visited in three different seasons, and each time we go, there are special garden, outdoor, and interior decorating touches. Larry Sidwell has created a luxury B&B in the heart of Mount Vernon in this carefully restored small mansion not far from Interstate highways 57 and 64. Larry Sidwell’s level of service is what one would expect from a concierge in a five star hotel, and his delicious multi-course breakfasts are beautifully served with antique china and crystal. The art and antiques in this B&B will impress even the most discerning collector, and the library is full of best-sellers, biographies, and the classics. We are so comfortable at Sidwell & Friends that it is always hard to leave!

Unique Quality: The inn is near the highways, but miles away in accoutrements, service, comfort, and quiet. Interesting dining options we enjoyed this time were really excellent Chinese food delivered to our door from Mt. Vernon’s China Buffet one evening and a catered event with several courses by Cindi Peterman catering. Being served with at a lovely decorated table with full silver service both nights made our dinners very special!

Directions: The inn is near the nexus of Interstate highways I-57 and I-64.
