Read on for last-minute room availability TONIGHT and other gift ideas like how you can custom order our comfortable pillows, purchase gift certificates for a future getaway - or use the following recipe to bake up our chocolate chip cookies for your Valentine this weekend... 


It's not too late to have Valentine's Day plans! Our cozy Catharine's Room is available today, Friday the 13th, for $135 (plus tax). Call us today at 888-226-5096 to surprise your Valentine with a special night at the inn!

Don't have time for a getaway this weekend, but need gifts ideas? We have personalized gift certificates available for any amount beginning at $25, and we are sharing our signature chocolate chip cookie recipe below in case you want to cook up something for yourself or a loved one to celebrate the big day.

If you want to recreate the comfort at the inn while at home, don't forget that you can special order our pillows and robes for use in your own home. Just last week a previous guest emailed after receiving her new pillows, she took a photo of her guest room, and said she loved the new pillows!

Just ask us if you have any questions or need additional information to place an order. We have a PDF with details and information about some of the inn's favorite pillows:

And if you like to bake in the kitchen - you can make our made-from-scratch chocolate chip cookies! These are the same signature treats that we have waiting for guests on their pillows each evening during their stay. Enjoy!

Willis Graves Bed and Breakfast Inn Chocolate Chip Cookies
Adapted from the Ghirardelli Chocolate Company

2 1/2 cups unsifted flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoon high quality vanilla extract
11 1/2 ounces Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Chips

Stir flour with baking soda and salt; set aside.

In a large mixer bowl, cream butter with sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Gradually blend dry mixture into creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop 1 tablespoon of dough per cookie onto ungreased cookie sheets. We bake ours in a convection oven at 350 degrees for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. If you are baking them in a regular oven, adjust the bake setting to 375 degrees.
