Savannah is our grandest room and a favorite with Brides and Anniversary couples.  It has a large bow window facing Southwest towards the Mountains forming the Eastern rim of the Smoky Mountains National Park. The lace-canopied King sized pencil post bed is a reproduction in mahogany of an 18th century federal style bed. In addition to having a top-of-the-line pillow top mattress, it also has a feather bed, and in the colder months, is covered with a luxurious goose-down duvet.  The lace canopy drapes can be left tied back as shown or allowed to hang free around the bed to create the ultimate romantic atmosphere.
All of the other furnishings in the room are genuine antiques, mostly from the late Victorian period. The artwork includes original paintings.  The room is air conditioned, and has cable television with VCR, a refrigerator and a telephone.
The large bathroom is surrounded with windows looking onto Eagles Nest Mountain and is fitted with a two-person Jacuzzi whirlpool bathExeter Room is named for a famous old cathedral town in the County of Devon in England, a town which has special memories for the Innkeepers.

Crêpes, soufflés, Belgian Waffles, Eggs Benedict, or other fine breakfast entrées complemented by home-made coffee cakes or muffins, yogurt and fresh fruit are served for our guests here every morning.Paris is the room which is the repository for some of the items collected during trips to one of our favorite cities including artwork purchased in the Louvre.

Our front porch wraps around the side of the house on one side and steps down onto a brick patio with cafe furniture on the other side. Our cozy library is off the patio through French doors.Across the street from Prospect Hill is the weekly farmers market where our guests can pick up some local foods.  At the bottom of our driveway is Bogarts, a Waynesville tradition of comfort food and friendly service.
One half of our large living area has a large screen TV for watching a pick from our large movie selection or catching a sports game.
We get beautiful snow days here with long range views while being on Main St. our town is excellent at keeping the roads clear and the power on!
Our large wood stove in the living room is the perfect place to enjoy a winter day with cocoa and a game of monopoly.
