One of the best places ever

I can't wait to go back. My perfect place! And I think I gained 5 pounds from the big Southern delicious breakfast.

Winston Place was pleasant, interesting and the people were extremely welcoming and nice. The breakfast was wonderful. We will plan to go back again!
Charming Historic Retreat
on January 04, 2015
This is a beautiful historic home turned B&B. The hosts are gracious in sharing their space and making your stay relaxing and comfortable. There are at least two rooms that sleep four - which was a nice benefit for us. We were able to have our family together in one room. Our room was spacious with two queen beds and a lovely sitting area. The common area is very large with multiple group seating arrangements, a pool table, a refrigerator, a snack/beverage table, and a large stone fireplace.
The Winston House is located in the western valley of Lookout Mountain, a nice place to get away from it all, but with some local shopping/restaurants in the quaint nearby Mentone Community.
We would definitely choose Winston Place again.
NOTE: I have seen some reviews that mention the train. Yes, it does run in front of the property, but the rumble and sound of the train was not disturbing in the least.
Beautiful and restful weekend getaway

Our anniversary stay with the Bunches was unforgettable! Their hospitality was over the top, breakfasts were generous and timed to fit our schedule. Jim is quite a cook. We made new friends and enjoyed the area. Who knew there is an antiquing trail of 7 stores there? We will be going back to address antiques more thoroughly. And we will again be staying at Winston Place. Highly recommended. I can't think of any cons for the trip.

We greatly appreciated the hospitality and warm hearty welcome from Jim and Leslie. Our wedding was to take place at 4 p.m. so we needed a little extra time to dress and the Winston Place was the perfect setting and an hour early arrival was extended to us. The photographer came and took several shots at this beautiful home prior to departure to the chapel.
The room was very well appointed. The bed large and comfortable. Wood shudders allowed us a later than usual wake up time as the light from outside was completely blocked. Breakfast was hot and seasoned perfectly with plenty of coffee and endless refill of OJ from our host.
We highly recommend a night or two stay at Winston Place with Jim and Leslie.
Friendly People, Relaxing Stay

We had a great one night stay at Winston Place. Jim and Leslie were away, but they left Faye in charge and she was phenomenal! I assume if they hire staff as attentive as she is, then they must be the same way. Upon arrival, she gave us the grand tour, told us some stories about the house, and settled on the morning menu. When she asked my favorite food, I jokingly replied "rice!". It is true, but it was not expected for breakfast. Well....to my surprise she had it ready for me the next morning. The food was great and the bed was really comfortable. I loved that we had access to the porch from our room as well. We enjoyed playing pool downstairs after heading to town for dinner.
It is in a peaceful area, but there are train tracks. It did take some getting used to, but the other guest assured me that after the first night, you don't even hear it. I would have to agree as it didn't bother me later in the night. Even so, it's better than staying in some random chain hotel! The service is much better too.
Also, it's close to a state park and a national preserve for hiking/swimming as well.

We hosted a reception following the High School Reunion for Valley Head HS.
We felt as if we were hosting at our own antebellum mansion. Faye was wonderful, helped with our setup, allowed our guests to tour the house (without interfering with the other guests) and help, mostly did... our clean up. Great experience. We look forward to making it an annual event.
Exactly what we hoped for

Beautiful antebellum home full of history! Just what we were expecting! Comfortable accommodations and the hosts were very enjoyable to talk to. Definitely recommend it!
