Oak Grove has been named one of the 14 leading eco-friendly B&Bs in the country by bedandbreakfast.com. The article in its latest newsletter says:
“This stately antebellum home blends past and present, promoting both the B&B’s 200-year history and the modern potential of solar-generated energy. The property houses a solar photo-voltaic system that generates clean electricity. “Our guests will be able to sip lemonade on the front porch as my ancestors once did, then tour the 25×10-footlineup of solar panels in the back field,” says innkeeper Pickett Craddock, whose family has owned the former tobacco plantation since 1820. To make the property greener, the owners are installing “low-e” energy-efficient storm windows on the south side. Guests who arrive in hybrid vehicles get a third night free.
Each of three rooms is spacious and dressed to impress in gorgeous hardwood floors. Depending on choice of accommodations, guests will feel right at home (but also far from home) in the company of an antique oak desk, canopy bed, and large handmade rug. Awaken to the aroma of breakfast specialties wafting from the Oak Grove kitchen on into the charming Victorian dining room in which it’s served. Anyone for Cluster Springs egg puff, lemon soufflé pancakes and homemade biscuits?”
