"Take a walk around the property, inside and out, and you'll wonder if you are in a museum or a southern country inn. Collectibles abound, both from the Civil War and Gone with the Wind memorabilia. The collection of Civil War guns is one of the largest of its kind outside of Gettysburg. Scarlett's bed jacket from the honeymoon scene in GWTW, as well as Rhett's honeymoon robe are on display. Throughout the inn are photos, letters, plates, posters, etc with a GWTW connection. Any aficionado of the romantic classic would be in heaven." - Review by Wheeling WV News-Register
