This is a gorgeous historic home located in downtown Holly Springs. The rooms are spacious with high ceilings and the grounds are wonderful also. The management team of Brook and Priscilla are top notch. They take care of all the details leaving the bride carefree. I would highly recommend the Leslie-Alford-Mims-House.
