Hotel Redland and the Whistlestop Restaurant

Hotel Redland


In my many years as a journalist, there's no other place on earth that captivates my attention like the Hotel Redland does. For starters, it is in its restaurant where I first met my husband, also... this Hotel has something that I love, history!

The Hotel Redland has been around since the dawn of time it would seem, it's walls are paved with black and white stills from times long ago, it's ambience still holds the strength of it's resilience. Resilience, I say this with great esteem, this little hotel with only 12 rooms and a great wrap around porch, has lots of character. While it's hallways aren't full of ghost stories (which equals to a great night of sleep and rest) it does hold an ambience of serenity, peacefulness. It is quaint and comfortable, it's owners are down to earth good people with a heart to welcome everyone that steps through the doors with a warm smile, warm food and great stories.

I am told that Capone once stayed here, and while it's great that he did, there's nothing better than coming in to this little piece of heaven stored away in the south, and taking it all in, allowing it to take your mind mood and heart to a much better place than when you got there.
