Great Hospitality in Historic Surroundings

5 on April 11, 2014

My wife & I stayed here a couple of weeks ago and were thrilled that we were given this trip by our Children. The staff went out of their way to make our stay pleasant. The Breakfast's were absolutely fantastic. Home made food is so much better than eating in restaurants. Clean rooms. If you are in the Charlotte, NC. area, it is worth the time to stay at The Inn of the Patriots. You will be overly pleased to stay here and get to know the staff. Very knowledgeable & you can listen to Marti's stories about his White House experiences for ever. Lyle Smithers


Anniversary Getaway

4.2 on April 11, 2014

We were gifted this getaway and had never heard of the Inn before. What a pleasant surprise tucked away in quaint Grover! It was the perfect amount of cool historical items to check out at the house/museum, yet relaxing enough where we could decompress and just hang out together on our first trip away from our baby! The room was quite comfortable and the food was delicious! Very cool experience.


Fun, educational, friendly B&B with outstanding breakfasts and cooking class!

4.6 on April 02, 2014

We spent 2 nights along with one cooking class at the Inn of the Patriots. Chef Marti and his wife Chef Stormy were friendly and made us feel at home and relaxed right from the start. Our room was decorated appropriately and detail was exceptional as the famous Polynesian Room, though the bathroom accommodations that came with the room were a tad "tight". Each mornings breakfast was a "horn of plenty" with flavorful 3 courses, piping hot, tasty and served right from their kitchen. On top of that, we took a cooking lesson with Chef Marti that was both entertaining and informative. We turned out what I would call an artisanal pizza that I'm sure we'll concoct again at home. We really enjoyed our stay, the friendly, homey atmosphere along with the historical features and tour. If you're in the Charlotte area and looking for a unique place to stay, this is it!

A Wonderful Surprise!

5 on March 11, 2014

I was looking for somewhere special to take my "valentine" and discovered the Inn of the Patriots! Marti and Stormy were such awesome hosts - even had a Valentine balloon waiting in our gorgeous room for us. Our experience was extraordinary in so many ways and we were so surprised and pleased! We loved the warm and inviting home, the rocking chairs on the front porch (with blankets if we got cold) is where we talked into the wee hours of the night, the breakfasts were to die for, the bed - so comfortable, and the room very clean with all the comforts of home. Surprise after surprise - The Inn is a Museum and Marti is a plethora of information - creme' brûlée for (2) appeared in our room - and I am not going to continue because I don't want to ruin the surprise for you! I highly recommend the Inn of the Patriots! Be ready for a wonderful surprise! Thank you Marti and Stormy!

Signature Dish

Werner's Strammer Max
A great Chef friend of mine from Austria taught me how to make this dish from Salzburg - the famed Strammer Max of bread on a buttered skillet, Black Forest Ham, Swiss Cheeses and two eggs over easy on top! We continue to serve it and honor Werner from a town where the Sound of Music was filmed, Salzburg, Austria - a town I enjoyed visiting. We have also begun to serve the famous Cleveland Club sandwich made famous in Cleveland County, NC by my chef wife, Stormy and I.
