“One of the first things people do when getting here is run out to buy groceries. The Food lion is only about 1 1/2 miles away, very convenient. It is a smaller store, basic but has everything. If you want gourmet Publix and Ingles are about 4 miles away, fairly quick ride. ”
“One of the best breakfasts ever! Fresh & homemade ~ doesn't get any better!! ”
