Close to perfect...

Everything was as good or better than expected... Food prep and presentation both outstanding; Innkeeper and staff pleasant, attentive. Accommodations were a neat combination of rustic and modern. Looking forward to our next excuse to spend some time there again!

This surprise Valentine's Get A Way could not have turned out better. The Inn was amazing! We were at home immediately with the gorgeous surroundings and welcoming personality of Dr. Bates! Our suite was everything we could have asked for in a romantic evening! The dining experience for both dinner and breakfast was fabulous! Full bellies and great conversation. We didn;t want to leave! We are anxious to return again when it is Spring and in full bloom. Regina and Mark

We loved staying at the Pinnacle. Going off the highway for a bit was a lovely way to explore the area. The bed was very comfy and the omelette in the morning was the kind you keep thinking about forever as it was so delicious! The host was very enjoyable and informative.

A Nice Find

Ira was very attentive and helpful. Drive to get there was a challenge. It is in the "boonies" but a nice place to really get away from it all. Drive to Berea is about 15 minutes for acceptable dining. Stuffed french toast was a real treat.

Can't wait to return

My husband and I stayed the weekend here while we were in town for a festival and shopping in October. The Inn and its surroundings are beautiful, I enjoyed the property and the furry friends outside. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The butter pecan pancakes are a MUST! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and cannot wait to return.

Pleasant surprise

We enjoyed the visit, sharing stories with the host about history and art. His collections are high quality and diverse. The gourmet breakfast was outstanding, as it was made to order. The location and surroundings make your entrance to the house, a tale of two worlds.

most relaxing vacation ever

My wife and I needed a vacation. We were so happy we picked Pinnacle View. It was very quiet and relaxing for us. The hospitality and breakfast was fantastic. than you for opening your home to us.

We never went in

When we arrived at the Inn, the only thing that resembled the photo on the internet was the green roof. The entire outside of the building was in disrepair. There were about 20 dogs running around, mainly puppies. There was feces and urine from the driveway to the front porch. We ran the door bell and no one answered, so we left and called to cancel our reservation. Needless to say, we will never be back.

Perfect in every way. Great!

Excellent night. Views & food incredible. Above expectations.

Great place in the country but close to town

Ira, the owner, is a terrific host. We arrived, much later than anticipated, and in the dark. We called Ira because we were lost. He stayed on the line and helped us find our way for an entire 8 miles. The Moore Suite was amazing. The mattress was comfy and the bathroom sent us into sensory overload. There is a two person tub that had it's own waterfall, a separate walk in shower and a fireplace to stay nice and cozy. As we enjoyed our delicious breakfast, Ira sat in his rocking chair sharing stories and knowledge of the Berea area. Very nice stay.
