Ben Maddox House, Visalia, CA

Made our way to Visalia, CA and pulled into the dated Ben Maddox House, built in 1876.  It looked like something staright out of a civil war movie, with sloping roofs, a high cieling, original hardwood floors and very discreet and quiet atmosphere, private entrace and all. The wife wanted a Lincoln room, so we had a private doorway with a porch and swing all to ourself. Luckily it was only the wife and me, as they have a restriction of two people per room. The bed was magnificient, though. Really comfortable and very relaxing.

Dinner was a private affair too, with a private table and complimentary beverages. Considering it was just an overnight stay for us, and considering that I just looked up Visalia vacations on the internet to get hold of some overnight lodging in Visalia, the Ben Maddox was a huge and pleasant surprise and we mulled over staying back for a couple of days and enjoying the peace and poking around Visalia the next day.

The next morning we visited the The Mooney Grove Museum, which had a lot of historic Indian bowls and weapons. The oak trees in the Park were really majestic. We'll be going to Sequoia National Park and I have a budding enthusiasm for some nature exploration.
