I don't know where to begin - with the beautiful common rooms? The heavenly beds and pillows? How about the delicious breakfast? Everything was fantastic and well appointed, but anyone can keep up a beautiful B&B. What made the Gastonian special for me was the people. We felt at home and thoroughly welcome. Everywhere we went was a warm smile and willing offer of help or information. They say in the south there are no strangers, only friends you haven't met yet, and this couldn't be truer at the Gastonian.
