Our children gave us gift certificates to any Bed and Breakfast...and after searching and looking at many B&B I came across the Pilot Knob B&B.....we stayed in cabin 2 and it was absolutely perfect. If you're looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life this is the place for you. Time seems to stand still for a while. It ended up being very cold but that made to fire my husband built in the fireplace even more beautiful. Just sitting there listening to the popping and crackling of the fire was very peaceful. Breakfast was great.. the owner Jennifer was so nice and her helper was also. We will be going back and we will stay in another one of the cabins if not # 2 again......We loved it.....so glad i came across it while surfing the web....I passed up all the B&B in the big cities and chose this little cabin in the woods...so glad I did :) Looking for something to do...go to Mt.Airy and learn more about the Andy Griffith Show. :) David and Sara :)

If you like a rustic look and feel, but want to enjoy the amenities of a modern place, this is the place for you. We stayed in Cabin #1 and the view of Pilot Knob from near our cabin is amazing! The cabin was clean and cozy. The rustic look was nice, but we had central heat and hot water. So, all the amenities of home. My wife and I spent our days in Mount Airy, but Winston-Salem is a short drive as well. The breakfast is absolutely amazing! Great food and great company from the owner and her cook. They make it so easy to like this place. I would definitely go again!

My husband and I spent our wedding night at Pilot Knob Inn Bed&Breakfast and loved it. I was disappointed that I was not able to have a long honeymoon but when I arrived I felt like I was in heaven. The cabin was so clean and beautiful I wish I could live in it. My husband and I returned for our three year anniversary and was just as special as my wedding night. The staff is so friendly and welcoming. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Great secluded property. Hosts are friendly and accommodating. Perfect location. One of the most relaxing trips I have taken in many years. With 13 rooms/cabins we want to go back every year and stay in a different one each time. Already planning our Fall foliage trip for next year if not sooner.

My husband and I stayed in Cabin #2 for our honeymoon in October 2013. We had a wonderful stay. We'd love to be able to return for a little get away sometime soon!

My girlfriend and I made last minute plans to stay at the Pilot Knob Inn and I have to say, It was wonderful. The cabin was beautiful. The management was great! Everything was so perfect. It was our first time staying, but definitely won't be our last. We are going to come back every chance we get and we are going to stay in the same cabin, every time. Couldn't of had it any better! -Jesse Holcomb

I surprised my wife with a stay at Pilot Knob Inn for our 10th wedding anniversary. It was an excellent stay worth every penny. The staff are friendly. The room is awesome. I can't wait to get back. I would and have recommended Pilot Knob to all my friends. can't wait to go back!!!

My husband and I tried Pilot Knob Inn on a lark. We had a wonderful time! We had such a great time that we got home and booked our 7th Anniversary at Pilot Know Inn.

Nestled at the base of Pilot Knob Mountain is the Pilot Knob Inn Bed & Breakfast. We spent two lovely nights there this week (end of Sept.). The Inn has several log cabins (100 year old tobacco barns) with hot tubs, fire places, central heat, air conditioners and Wifi. We stayed in the Love Shack. Very comfortable and cozy. We spent time shopping and sightseeing in Mt.Airy, NC (inspration for Mayberry, RFD and Andy Griffith TV series) and in Pilot Mountain, NC (Mount Pilot in the series). Spent one afternoon touring "Mayberry " attractions: Andy Griffith Museum, Walley's Service Station, Floyd's Barbershop, Opie's Candy Store, and ate at Snappy Lunch. Later we enjoyed time in the jacuzzi, sat on the front porch and read in the rocking chairs then watched Andy Griffith videos in front of a cozy fireplace. Nice breakfasts were supplied each morning: fresh fruit, Belgian waffles, sausage, bacon ,ham and eggs to order (8:30 - 9:30AM). Wonderful, restful time!

No one does it better. The breakfast is unbelievablle. You want it, they have it. We have stayed in three different suites and been coming nearly eight years. Jen and Kathy are very friendly. They give you your privacy. It is always clean. A nice weekend or week long get away with someone you love. Peter & Debbie, Wilson, NC

We loved almost everything about the cabin. It was rustic and charming with all the amenities. We were very happy that our cabin was pet friendly; made our stay much more relaxed because we could have our pet with us. It is very quite and peaceful and could not ask for nicer folks that run the place. The food was fantastic. We were a little disappointed that the boats, paddles and life jackets were not of better quality -- we only saw one life jacket available and most of the paddles were either broken or did not look safe so we opted not to go out on the lake and fish; that was a bit of a disappointment because that was one of the reasons we stayed there . Overall it was a great stay and we really enjoyed it. I would suggest that the cabin we stayed in have an overall good dusting, the lights and shades were quite dusty and also, the room could stand to be aired out after each guest to let some of the wood smoke out. Although it is to be expected with a wood burning fireplace, the smell was overwhelming when we first got there. We opened the windows and sprayed febreeze (that I always travel with) and the odor subsided almost completely. Again it was overall a great visit!!!!!!

We will be coming for our third visit this weekend but this time we are bringing some our closest friends. Hoping to have a surprise party for my husband and introduce our friends to the serenity and hospitality we found here!
5 on November 03, 2012
This was our second visit to the inn. We first visited 2 years ago. I love the tobacco barn cabins. It's a great escape from the hustle of everyday life. Very peaceful and romantic not to mention the fantastic breakfast! Jennifer and Kathy are very welcoming. Can't wait to return!!

We had a wonderful time at "The Love Shack " log cabin this past Thurs night. It was so cozy and comfortable, cheesecake & cider just perfect... breakfast out of this world! All homemade and delicious. Even their dog was so friendly- is he a dingo/Australian shepard ? My husband thought he was "fake" because he was so perfect ... just like everything else at your place.We will definitely be back. We hope to be back soon ! Dawn & Ron of Hooksett NH

Spent a wonderful anniversary weekend. Peaceful and romantic getaway.
5 on August 14, 2012
My partner decided after 2yrs it was time to exchange rings. We had to plan this at Pilot Knob Inn. Jennifer and Kathy were great in helping us plan. Most of it was a surprise, and Jennifer was such a big help, from flowers to letting us check in early. Was the most wonderful weekend! We have been going to Pilot Knob for a year now, and just can't even imagine staying anywhere else. It has become our home away from home.

My husband and I recently stayed for our anniversary. We were looking for something different from the hotels at the beach where we usually vacation. This site was definitely different! We stayed in Cabin 4, and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere. We only stayed two nights, but wanted to stay longer! The positives of this place outweighed the negatives: beautiful grounds, private cabin, outstanding breakfast, good service with a willingness to please, VERY close to Pilot Mountain park, super romantic and cozy cabin, and nice amenities. I rated the cleanliness as a 3 (met my expectations) because I expected to find a little dust and a few cobwebs in a mountain cabin. I swept the front porch and cleared the cobwebs outside myself because I was squeamish about walking under so many spiders. Inside, the room was pretty clean, but a little maintenance and updating in the bathroom would have been nice. Overall, we had a wonderful stay, and we are planning to return! If you are looking for a 5 star resort, this is not it, but if you want a peaceful, unique, romantic place to stay, you should give Pilot Knobb Inn a try.

Just wanted a little time to sit , catch my breath, and listen to the wind blow. So sunday night via 11:30 looked up b&b w/s and found you guys and what a find. I relaxed wednesday night 7/3/12 and did not even make it to breakfast. I sat on the front porch of cabin 3 till 2 am then the upstairs porch off bedroom till 3:30 listening to the wind , frogs, and whatever but the room was great and the down time was even better and then on the way out just to meet the people in charge was the best . I will go back over and over and thank you for what you have given me. Danny

Sit on the porch and rock, sleep on the brown leather sofa, soak in the jacuzzi, take a swim in the pool, take a hike in the woods, eat, repeat. 3 days was not enough....neither would 4. Soooo glad we found you.
5 on June 11, 2012
My husband totally surprised me and we had a great time. The cabins, ground and pool were delightful. We fished and caught several panfish and bass in the pond. We saw deer run across the property. The breakfast was wonderful and included waffles, omlets, ham, bacon, sausage, muffins, all sorts of preserves and your choice of orange juice, apple juice, tea, milk, or coffee...I think I missed one. LOL. I would definitely love to go again.
5 on June 09, 2012
Everything about Pilot Knob is wonderful. Have been 3 times in the past 6months. Jennifer and Kathy could not be more helpful and so friendly. Love the Castle!!
5 on May 17, 2012
My wife and I just celebrated our 10th Wedding Anniversary in Cabin #5 and we loved it!! Everything was GREAT!!! We will definitely be back as soon as we can, the cabin was nice and quiet. When we were sitting out on the front porch and a deer went walking along in front of us just like we weren't there. Thank you Will and Jennifer for a Great 3 days!!

Penthouse Suite is wonderful. It is large and relaxing with a full wall of windows, floor to ceiling, that look out to the knob of Pilot Mountain. The hottub in the living room was great, but the chlorine fumes were a little overwhelming...but we fixed that by opening all the upper windows and it didn't get cold because of the beautiful gas log fireplace heating it. This trip was for our 20th anniversary and we will be back!!! The breakfast was worth the cost of the trip alone...the hospitality was terrific. STAY here and you will be absolutely pleased. Thank you Pilot Knob Inn for giving us a quiet wonderful place to escape to...on 2/15-17, 2012 and for the future!!
4.6 on December 11, 2011
We had a great anniversary weekend. We only wish we could have stayed longer. We arrived Friday evening in the dark, which was a little scary because it is truly in the woods. We stayed in the SW cabin and it was wonderful. The next morning is when we really were able to appreciate the beauty of the property and the area in general. We also went to a nearby park to hike and see waterfalls. It was a really enjoyable weekend. The cabins/suites were very private and romantic. We definately plan to return!
5 on October 03, 2011
We spent our wedding night in the Pilot Knob Inn 6 years ago, and have always wanted to come back and stay in one of the cabins. We finally did it for our 6th anniversary and it was great. We stayed in cabin #2 for Friday/Saturday nights and it was rustic, but charming and romantic. The cabin was clean and private and Jennifer and Kathy were great at attending to us at breakfast each morning. The breakfast is outstanding and their service is extraordinary. I highly recommend a stay at the Pilot Knob Inn, and I know we will definitely try to come back before another six years passes. Thanks so much for a wonderful weekend.

We just returned from a 3 nt stay at the Pilot Knot Inn. We stayed in Cabin #1. It was just what we were looking for and generally met our expectations. We found it attractive because it's rustic, nicely located, yet offer convenient ammenities inside. The service was outstanding. We were well-taken care of and given lots of privacy. Kathy and Jennifer simply couldn't have been nicer or more accomodating. They make you feel right at home. Here are my (hopefully helpful) suggestions to the owners: (1) place screens in the upstairs bedroom windows to get airflow w/out having to run the air conditioning. (2) place a satellite or cabled-enabled TV in the living room (only the bedroom had this and the mainfloor TV could only play VHS tapes) (3) place hangars in the bedroom armoire - we saw the spindles inside but there really weren't enough (4) fix the bathroom tile since there were several areas of tile in the bathroom that were noticeably loose (5) place a latch or lock on the front screen door - it really didn't latch so we had to keep the large front door closed to keep out the insects and this further inhibited airflow. (5) air out the cabin before incoming guests arrive - the previous occupant had obviously burned firewood in the fireplace shortly before our arrival and the cabin needed airing out very badly! It also smelled a little musty (6) place something on the stairs separating the main floor and bedroom with slip resistent material to avoid potential hazards. You have to hold onto the hand rail tightly and walk slowly to ensure you don't fall - especially while wearing your socks. (7) place a least 1 hassock in the bedroom to making sitting in the chairs more comfortable. Overall - a great stay. The breakfast is awesome and Jennifer & Kathy make you feel so welcome. Getting to meet their family pets Jean, Douglas, and Trooper really made for a fun time!

Wonnderful place, wonderful retreat. Stayed in Cabin #3 and had a great mini vacation.
5 on July 15, 2011
We stayed in Cabin#1 7-8-11 thru 7-10-11. We had a great time. From the time we arrived to the time we HAD to leave......it was fantastic. It is so peaceful there. The cabin was great. The service was great. The breakfast was fast and out of this world. I took my sweetie up for the weekend just to get away and that's what we did. No agendas....just relaxation. We loved sitting on the front porch and talking. We hiked along some of the trails and saw no one else. There were people there but you did not see them until maybe at breakfast. It was so peaceful. The weekend was everything and more than we were expecting. Thanks for a great getaway weekend! We will be back. Donnie & Cindy

My wife and I made a trip down to Winston Salem to view the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center (potential job for my wife) and we made reservations to stay at the Pilot Knob Inn....All I can say is that this place is as close to Heaven as you can possibly get without being there! We stayed in the Heavenly Hideaway Suite and it was perfect. The name says it all....because it was truly Heavenly! We ate dinner at Soppers which was amazing and then in the morning, the breakfast was incredible! This place takes Southern Hospitality to the extreme....and that's not a bad thing! It was a wonderful getaway for my wife and I. We HIGHLY recommend it and will definitely be back!

We just returned from a 5 night stay at the Pilot Knob Inn and we had a wonderful time! The staff, Jen, Will and Kathy could not have been more accommodating and friendly - they are extremely attentive! The location is wonderful to visit many interesting sites and beautiful scenery. The cabins are adorable and very comfortable - will look forward to visiting in the cooler weather to use the lovely fireplace. Breakfast is great, with many choices - and very fast! Thanks for a great vacation - PS: Brought our dog which is so great to be able to do!

Greatest time I have had this year. Listening to the rain hit the tin roof of the cabin reminded me of when I was a kid growing up. Man what a great time fishing and hiking. This was really a relaxing time.
5 on June 17, 2011
This is a beautiful property and beautiful people run it. Our stay there was perfect. The room was very clean and gorgeous. The breakfast was amazing! Kathy really knows how to cook and is just a sweet person. Jennifer is an amazing innkeeper and just so friendly and helpful. If you want a truly peaceful and restful retreat in a beautiful rustic setting, go. Even if you don't, go. You will not be disappointed. I will be back.

Pilot Knob Inn is a breathtaking getaway hidden in our beautiful North Carolina mountains. A wonderful getaway for my husband and I. We love spending our anniversaries there. The cabins are unbelievable. They are so romantic. The lake is peace and quiet mixed with the beauty of nature. The staff is so friendly its like visiting with old friends. You know they are there if you need anything, but they will not intrude on your privacy. The breakfast room is terrific. Specktacular view and country feel inside with fresh flowers and warm sunshine. Jen and Kathy have everything for breakfast you would ever want. Thank you for the special memories that my husband and I share everytime we stay. We are looking forward to working our way through each of the cozy cabins. PEACE-BEAUTY-ROMANCE!!!!!

Spent a wonderful night in cabin # 4 and couldn't have been more pleased! Wonderful fire, wonderful jacuzzi, great private porch out front and back deck off the bedroom, huge comfy bed, and tasty breakfast. Very romantic & cozy if you appreciate a genuine rustic setting. Jennifer & family were responsive & friendly - real southern hospitality! Convenient to nice hiking at Pilot Mountain and Hanging Rock, plus things to do and places to eat in Mt. Airy. Excellent value. We'll be returning! Scott - Greensboro, NC

This is an awesome vacation spot if you enjoy mountain view in a camp type atmosphere without all the work of camping. Thanks so much to the staff for making out honeymoon so relaxing.

An outstanding weekend at the Pilot Knob Inn. Will and Jennifer are great people. The lady who cooked our breakfast was the best. Great food. We will be back. Brent & Amy

My wife and I celebrated our 5th anniversary at this wonderful B&B . This was our second time staying here and it did not disappoint.We had a great time and great breakfast. The service was great and the room and view even better. We are planning our next trip now. Don't pass this place up.
5 on March 27, 2011
I was at work and I decided to take a trip to the beach. Well my wife reminded me that we had never went on our honeymoon. So, she sent me this B and B through my e-mail. I did not want to spend that kind of money on a weekend trip but man was I surprised when I arrived. We have never stayed at a B and B before and needless to say, it was underpriced for the hospitality and the feel of the place. They dotted all their i's and crossed all their t's. We didn't lack anything. I highley recomend this B and B for your honeymoon or just a romantic weekend get away. Thanks Michael and Kim
4.6 on March 03, 2011
The setting at Pilot Knob Inn was very relaxing. Everyone we spoke to there was very nice. Unfortunately I'm not a morning person, so we didn't get any breakfast. We did have a slice of cake, which was very tasty. We loved the room! It was so nice to be able to just relax at this place! I would recomend the Inn. We will return when we get a chance!
5 on February 14, 2011
We stayed at the Pilot Knob Inn for a business trip and getaway combined. What a wonderful, "lost in the forest" site this is. It was so quiet and so very different than any place we have been that it quickly became our favorite! The breakfast was so good and prepared by Kathy to order! I have some food sensitivities and she made me feel like I wasn't a big pain. Thegrounds were wonderfull natural with Pilot Knob practically in the cabin! I couldn't believe the nice photos I got. We will be back again! Linda and Larry Biggs Sugarcreek, Ohio

This was a very nice cabin. The pictures do NOT do it justice. The breakfast was out of this world! Brent and Donna
4.8 on January 04, 2011
A week in the cabin was an oasis from the noise and confusion of our day-to-day technology-laden life. It was sheer pleasure to walk out on the front porch in the silence of the woods and hear nothing but the wind or a squirrel scampering by in the leaves. Building a fire in the fireplace was a comforting and hypnotic daily ritual. There is a sense of accomplishment in contructing the perfect blaze, and a oneness with the world as you stare at the everchanging flames. Will and Jennifer's inn gives you total privacy with a warm, friendly presence just around the corner so that you never feel alone. Kathy served up delicious breakfasts with her local wisdom and good humor. She is a treasure and a delight! We are already planning our next visit (4th year in a row). Thanks to all of you at Pilot Knob Inn and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.

Didn't know what to expect. Beautiful inside, and great friendly Innkeeper and chef.
4.2 on December 15, 2010
We stayed in Cabin 1 for my fiance's birthday and we really enjoyed it. The cabin has a wood fireplace and a nice jacuzzi tub. The staff was very nice and the full breakfast was delicious (belgian waffles, eggs, sausage, grits, fruit, yogurt, etc). We would definitely recommend it and visit it again.
5 on December 01, 2010
The room was excellent and as much as we could ask for. The food and service was great! This is our second time there and it was better than the first! Lots of things to do near by including just about any type of food you can imagine for a dinner.
3.8 on November 29, 2010
We made our annual trip to Pilot Knob for time for ourselves and as always we were pleased with our stay. It is the perfect place for couples to go to spend time alone and relax and enjoy each other. The cabins allows for privacy. Our hostess and staff are always so very pleasant, polite, smiling and helpful. We look forward to our next stay.
4.8 on November 28, 2010
Spent a wonderful night in the Love Shack - second time in that cabin. Great cabin, great service and completely relaxing. I would recommend to anyone
4.2 on November 23, 2010
The cabins are cozy, clean and private. Jacuzzi tubs may be a bit tight for two people, but certainly relaxing. Innkeepers are very nice and responsive to your needs. NC taxes and fees are high, so keep in that in mind when calculating your total cost. There is no question that I will return soon!!
4.4 on November 20, 2010
We were thrilled with our stay in one of the tobacco barn cabins. We had nice hikes in the woods and came back to enjoy a fire in our real wood burning fireplace. If you want rustic but without truly roughing it, this is the place. A wonderful breakfast was served each morning in the lovely breakfast room and everyone made us feel as though we've known them forever. We will be back for a longer stay next time. There is a stable available so think about bringing your horse too! It is a beautiful area to ride.
5 on November 19, 2010
Could not have asked for a more perfect place to spend a romantic weekend!
5 on November 19, 2010
The picture to our cabin was misleading. It is not standing alone as pictured. It is connected to another building and is in very close proximity to foot traffic for guests going to their rooms. It should be noted in the details so that guests are not surprised.
4.4 on November 15, 2010
We spent our first anniversary here and it was an outstanding weekend. Jenn is a wonderful host. We will definitely be back!
5 on November 12, 2010
This was the perfect little hidden treasure at the base of a beautiful mountain. We stayed in the Yadkin Valley Honeymoon Cabin, and everything was just outstanding! From the sparkling cider and truffles waiting when we arrived to the luxury of an extra hour at checkout time, our expectations were exceeded. The hot tub was delightful, and the bed was so comfy it was hard to get up for breakfast. But breakfast was certainly worth it, yum! We will definitely be back.
4.8 on November 04, 2010
When my husband and I opened the doors to Castle Suite 11, we stood with mouths agape. It was one of the must elegant, luxurious rooms we have ever stayed in. The rich dark paneling on the walls contrasted beautifully with the white floor-to-ceiling bookcases. The entire room was decorated with some of the most highly-detailed, unique antiques. The room even featured a jacuzzi tub easily large enough for two, and our own private sauna! I could have laid on the comfortable sofa or the embroaidered setee for days just reading. There is also a large private balcony overlooking the woods. Breakfast was delicious--we just had too many choices! The owner and chef were a wonderful team in making sure no one left hungry. We are looking forward to our return!
4.4 on November 03, 2010
Room and service were great. Breakfast the best I've ever had. Just a little on the expensive side for my tastes. But would come back again.

10/28/10 - We stayed in the "Best View" Cabin at Pilot Knob Inn and it was wonderful!!! The cabin and view were fantastic!!! This was our first time and we intend to make it a yearly tradition. The breakfast was great and the staff was very friendly. A wonderful, relaxing experience.

I desperately needed an escape from my crazy life and I found it at Pilot Knob Inn. I had been searching for a cabin the woods and I stayed in the one pictured on the website. I had my own fireplace and front porch with rockers. The setting is beautiful wooded with a wonderful view of Pilot Mountain from my front porch. I would highly recommend this inn and I plan to come back.
5 on October 28, 2010
We only got to spend one night at the inn but you can bet next time it will be much longer. It's the perfect getaway - peaceful, relaxing, great food and conversation. We were in cabin #4. My husband and I can't wait to return!
2.8 on October 27, 2010
We stayed in one of the tobacco barns, which was quaint but rustic. When visiting a B&B my wife notices attention to detail, which was lacking; the sink had no stopper, the soap dispenser was empty, the TP roll low. Simple things, but important to her. There's a lot of road noise since its close to the highway, but the thick log walls do a pretty good job of stopping it if you don't need a window open. The window air conditioner filter was filthy, and I cleaned it out in the sink. We rowed around the lake in the flat-bottom boat, and had to temper our excursion by the speed the boat was leaking and filling up the bottom (we made it before our feet got wet). Breakfast was good and the cook friendly; overall not quite the value we expected.
3.8 on October 27, 2010
This was a 5th wedding anniversary getaway for us and this was a great place to celebrate. We stayed in the Southwest Honeymoon Suite. All of our hosts went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. With all due respect to the two legged hosts, I have to give special praise to Trooper who showed us all the best hiking trails. He was a bit reluctant to stay in sight while hiding his bone again but I am sure he felt confident we could find our way down that section of the trail. The location puts quiet romantic walks, a visit to Mt. Airy("Mayberry"), Pilot Mountain State park, Hanging Rock State park, and the Ydkin Valley Vineyards within easy reach.
4.2 on October 25, 2010
We wanted a different kind of getaway for our 32nd anniversary and we were not disappointed. This was a great combination of creature comforts, rustic accomodations, and friendly staff. We had a most enjoyable experience.

My husband & I stayed in the Castle Room for our Honeymoon and this was exactly the setting for our honeymoon i imagined! It was nothing short of perfection. The room was great and the people were very pleasant! We will definitely be back every year! This was certainly a memorable experience. Thank you so much for everything! :)

We stayed in a cabin which was great. The food and service at breakfast was outstanding. Our only complaint was that we had several questions about the Inn, attractions, etc. but the office was not staffed when we were there. We could contact someone by phone, but we prefer face-to-face discussions. Regardless, we highly recommend Pilot Knob Inn and we will certainly go back again.

what a charming and romantic place!! the breakfast was fab!! i have already recommended this place.

My girlfriend at the time took me there for my birthday, we stayed May 10 of 2008, the first cabin on the right as soon as u pull in, as soon as we got there was a deer right beside the cabin so we sat there in the car for about 5mins wathching, we go in the cabin and i was overwelmed by how nice the cabin was,it sure was nice being there we built a fire and got in the hottub it was the best birthday gift ever!

We celebrated our 18th anniversary at the Pine Knob Inn and were completely relaxed and rejuvenated. The staff took good care of us and we hated to leave after just one night. I would recommend this get away to my best friends.

Cleanliness - score for bathroom & drinking glasses in room only; rest of room perfectly fine.

Just a one night stay but wish we'd been able to make it two. The place was genuinely relaxing, the room clean and comfortable, and the breakfast delicious. It caters to a specific need -- a couples retreat to just get away from the grind and enjoy the outdoors and indoors together. If that's what you're after and you don't need luxury then this place is your answer.

My husband and I spent our 6 month Wedding Anniversary at the Pilot Knobb Inn. What a special treat! I have never been to such a unique Inn before. We loved the privacy of having our own cabin and that wonderful spa tub! The breakfast was delicious and the hosts delightful. I think our dog enjoyed the trip as much as we did. Thanks for a great experience!
4.6 on October 07, 2010
It was a delight to discover such a quiet, enjoyable B&B in such a convenient location less than 2 hours from our home -- a mountain-y feeling even in the Piedmont, with quaint cabins refurbished inside with modern conveniences, hiking trails easily accessible both on the property and almost next door throughout Pilot Mountain State Park, a cheerful and very welcoming and helpful hostess, and even a pond with rowboats right on the property. We will return often.

Price was a bit high. The cabin was very nice and met all of our needs. The staff was very friendly and helpful and responded promptly to some issues we had with the DVD player. The rocking chairs on the front porch were wonderful.

Pilot Knob B&B is a treasure! Your 'get-away' time will be well-spent in a comfortable cabin with lots of hiking trail opportunities, a lake for boating, and close access to nearby attractions. Our visit was one of the most relaxing that we've ever had. Will and Jennifer provide you with genuine hospitality and do everything to make your visit comfortable. We will definitely return!

The breakfast is always amazing! We just love staying at the Pilot Inn Bed and Breakfast.

My husband and I live just 20 minutes away in north Winston Salem and turn to Pilot Knob Inn whenever we can. it is just far enough away we feel like we are in another world but close enough we don't loose any time to travel. Jennifer and Kathy work round the clock to make each visit different yet absolutley perfect! You can bet on the fact that we will be back again... as soon as we can... and as many times as the purse will allow!!!!

We really liked the cabin and the way it was done-up.

We just spent a night at Pilot Knob Inn in the Pilot Knob Suite and loved it! The pictures do not do the room justice. The hot tub was wonderful, and Jennifer was a sweetheart. We will definitely stay here again!

Reserved cabin online at the last minute and was very pleased with the fast response. Great place to get away for a few days. Beautiful pool, great atmosphere. The cabins are well equipped, I was suprised that the full DirecTv lineup was on, not just one HBO channel like at a hotel. The breakfast was excellent, everything cooked to order. Total first class all the way.

My husband and I recently spent one night in the Southwestern Suite to celebrate our August birthdays. From relaxing in the sparkling pool to walking down to the quiet lake to soaking in the enormous spa tub in our suite to being served a very delicious breakfast, we felt like we celebrated our big days in style! We hope to return soon when we can stay a little longer..........
5 on August 22, 2010
The Southwest Suite is GREAT!!! We are regulars at Pilot Knob B&B. Southwest Suite is our favorite. It's cozy and we love it. It is the only suite that has a kitchenette, table and chairs. We like to sit out on the porch in the rockers and enjoy a glass of wine. The king size bed and a HUGE whirlpool tub is more than big enough for two . The bedroom is very spacious. It has the most comfy leather sofa and recliner chair. Kathy does a super job of keeping everything clean in all the rooms, suites and cabins, and she makes a fabulous breakfast. Jen is a phone call away if we have any need at all. Jen makes you feel right at home. And don't forget the cheese cake, crackers, sparkling cider, and truffles as an add-on to the deal. The breakfast is amazing. You can have a little or have it all -- from eggs, waffles, fresh fruits, cakes or pies, canadian bacon, country ham, toast -- it's all there. It's truly a treasure that we found Pilot Mountain B&B a few years ago. I am always looking at the calendar for a time we can squeeze in a get away. You'll love the Southwest Suite!

We absolutely loved the cabin! It was perfect! We enjoyed the pool, as well. Breakfast was outstanding!

Pilot Knob was a wonderful and relaxing place to stay. The cabin was adorable and we had a wonderful stay. Breakfast was delicious! We will certainly stay again!

Delightful surroundings. The ultimate in "recycling". Who would have thought a tobacco barn could be such a comfortable cabin. Will be returning for another visit. Thank you to the delightful and friendly owners.

My husband & I stayed in the Southwest Honeymoon Suite for our anniversary weekend at $179/night and staying for 2 nights. Walking into the bedroom before even putting down my bag, I got splinters from the wall in my hand, wrist & arm. The bedspread was old & faded and pillows, sham pillows and neckrolls were flat. The rooms were dark, no decoration on the walls of any kind in the bedroom. Sparsely decorated with cheap, homemade paintings in the bathroom on unframed small canvases complete with staples showing. One was literally 7 feet high! Only one small, cheap towel rack across the room from the sink. Medicine chest with mirror over sink you had to be careful not to knock it off the wall. The shower was at least 8 feet high and you cannot get a shower. It felt like a light rain coming from that high. VERY disappointed in room. Breakfast was also disappointing. No bacon or sausage smells wafting in the air because they are pre-cooked and/or frozen, reheated for your dining pleasure. I asked for country ham one morning and heard the microwave going and beep, then my food came. Hm. The fruits are wonderful. However they take them away about 910am, even though it states on the website that breakfast is from 830-930am. The 6-acre pond we never did see on the property anywhere. Overall, a huge disappointment for the money!
4.4 on July 08, 2010
My husband I celebrated our 42nd anniversary here. We had wonderful time and were made to feel very special by Kathy especially. The full breakfast each morning was great even though it lacked some "variety" in choices. We had the Yadkinville Honeymoon Cabin. It had everything we needed to relax and make our stay pleasant. We had a great time hiking around the grounds and in the state park, swimming, fishing, visiting Mt. Airy, and a nearby winery. Just happened the weekend we were there was the Pilot Mountain "Cruise In". My husband loves old cars, so it was a pleasant surprise and fun evening. Will put it on our list of things to do again!
4.6 on July 07, 2010
We spent 3 terrific nights in Tobacco Barn Cabin #1. I had heard such great things about this inn, that I just had to see for myself. It was charming and a great adult get away. We were able to take our toy poodle with us. The breakfast was superb as well as the service. We were not bothered by anyone and it was like we were in a small mountain community. We will certainly be back as soon as we can! - Mark & Susan, New Bern, NC

spent a wonderful night in the love shack, was a wonderful getaway and we enjoyed the hospitality and privacy.

The log cabin we rented was incredibly clean, tidy, well appointed. The view from our loft bedroom balcony was worth getting up for -- sunrise through the trees! FABULOUS full breakfast, good walking trail. Will return often!!

Pilot Knob Inn was a wonderful getaway for my husband and I to celebrate our 17th wedding anniversary. The staff was extremely helpful and very friendly. Our accommodations were great! We are planning another trip back as soon as we can!
5 on June 02, 2010
I just stayed another weekend in cabin number 5. Kathy and Jennifer were great as always. The world stops turning when I am up there. The lake is always full of fish. We caught 60. We saw deer and ground hogs. What a wonderful place to get away.
5 on June 01, 2010
Was beyond our expectations. We have stayed at several B&Bs before but none like this. The breakfast was great. Waffles, eggs, bacon,sausage; all of the usual stuff plus the best fresh fruit, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, watermelon, pineapple, canteloupe and more. Then there were the desserts for breakfast, totally unexpected but great. Constant supply of supply of snacks in the breakfast room which was open 24 hours/day. Staff were very helpful but not intrusive. Very peaceful setting. Perfect setting for honeymoon or anniversary. Wonderful place/setting for couples who want to get away from it all and don't want children around. Will be returning and highly recommended to others.
5 on May 24, 2010
This is an amazing place, the cabins are just perfect. The Morning Breakfast is AMAZING! This is truely a get-away Bed and Breakfast, when you are at Pilot Knob it seems that the outside world does not exist. We will be returning in the near future.
4.6 on May 19, 2010
Many thanks to Will, Jennifer, and Kathy for such a wonderful stay. We will definitely return. Our room, the Heavenly Hideaway was absolutley beautiful. Very spacious, and the jacuzzi for two was quite enjoyable. We definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting a quiet, cozy getaway.
4.6 on May 06, 2010
My husband and I stayed in Heavenly Hideaway Jacuzzi Suite in April and really enjoyed our stay. We took advantage of the $99 a night special. We were looking to unwind and it was just perfect!! The lake is great! We took the paddle boat out- saw turtles, geese, frogs, (and other wildlife I won't mention for those faint at heart). We caught enough fish for a fish fry out at the public grill next to the gazebo. The room is absolutely adorable- very cozy and romantic. Breakfast and our chef were just wonderful! We will definitely come again!
5 on April 07, 2010
It was our 15 year anniversary and this was a last minute get-away. I made one phone call and we we on our way (even thought we live less than 10 miles from here, it was just what we needed! Everything was very clean and nicely furnished. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicous with great scenic views.We will definetly be back.
5 on April 07, 2010
My husband & I stayed in the Yadkin Valley Honeymoon Suite last week. It was wonderful! Very quiet & relaxing. It had a king size bed & a large jacuzzi, the living room had a gas log fireplace. We even had our own front porch with rocking chairs! Our room had a minifridge, coffee maker & microwave. We also had DirecTV & wireless internet. The breakfast was wonderful & the owners are very nice. They don't allow children, & they try to screen the guests to ensure a quiet retreat for everyone (ie: no noisy college kids throwing a party!) All of the rooms are non-smoking, which is especially nice when you have allergies. Right now the property is gorgeous with all of the flowers blooming. There are trails to walk, a private lake with gazebos, paddle boats & row boats. They have catch & release fishing, too. There's also a stable about 5 mins away where you can go horseback riding. There are plenty of nice restaurants within 15 mins or so. Why would you stay in a boring hotel when you can have all of this for about the same price? We'll definately be back. It's a perfect weekend getaway! ~ Cheryl M.

We spent two perfect nights relaxing, taking in the country feel and fishing! Breakfast was superb. Our hosts were warm, friendly and outstanding!
5 on March 23, 2010
The room that we stayed in was the castle room. My husband and I felt like a King and Queen because that room is just so beautiful and we had our own little deck to enjoy such wonderful weather. We stayed there for our 2 year anniversary and we can't wait to go back again! Jennifer is such a sweetheart and the nicest person I have ever met. Also, the breakfast was great! We have never stayed at a bed and breakfast, but let me tell you we would recomment this bed and breakfast.
5 on March 22, 2010
My boyfriend and I stayed only one night at the Heavenly Hideaway,and it was as close to heaven as possible! It was super clean and very relaxing. It was just what we needed to reconnect. Its very private and pretty! The breakfast was very very good! We would go back again without any doubt!

What more can be said that hasn't already been. We stayed in the Castle Room and experienced the most delightful weekend imaginable. The suite was clean, spacious, full of exquisite decor and fun, relaxing amenities. The staff was extremely customer service oriented, full of great suggestions, warm and inviting. It was everything I expected and more
4.6 on March 21, 2010
We celebrated our 50th here and we enjoyed it so much. I left with tears in my eyes. I did not want to leave this peaceful place. Kathy and Jennifer are the greatest. You could not ask for a better breakfast and view. I look forward to our next visit.... just got home and wish we were going back. My husband and I solved all of our problems and the world problems on the cabin front porch rocking in the those wonderful chairs. Thought about taking them but I knew Kathy and Jennifer would notice. What a wonderful place for us to spend some very needed alone time. Thank you for sharing this wonderful place with us.
5 on March 15, 2010
Great, relaxing weekend stay! Beautiful setting, wonderful owner and staff were so accommodating. Delicious breakfast in a lovely breakfast room. Didn't want to leave!!!
5 on February 21, 2010
Accomodations were cozy, warm, and charming. The fireplace was perfect for the cold January weekend we stayed. Breakfast was outstanding and the innkeepers were very nice. We will definitely return and would love to experience a visit during the warmer months.
5 on February 09, 2010
This inn is a wonderful place to get away! My husband secretly booked us a weekend getaway at Pilot Knob Inn for our anniversary and it couldn't have been more perfect for much needed romance, rest and relaxation. The breakfast every morning was wonderful and the service was even better. We spent the weekend kayaking and visiting the local vineyards. There is not anything bad I can say about this wonderful bed and breakfast. I can't wait to come back!
5 on January 31, 2010
This was a Christmas present and I was excited as I had never been to a bed/breakfast or cabin getaway before. The cabin was spectacular. Very rustic but with all the conveniences! We relaxed and enjoyed the jacuzzi. We took a few short hikes. We felt like we were in our own little world in cabin #4. I highly recommend Pilot Knob Inn. The Allens were very hospitable and made you feel so welcome. The cabin was extremely clean and the breakfast served each morning was delicious! I've decided to make a weekend stay at the Pilot Knob Inn my parent's gift for their upcoming 50th wedding anniversary! A truly delightful experience and I can't wait to go back again.

We were married 12-12-09 in Lexington NC & came to the Pilot Knobb Inn for our honeymoon. It was very easy to find & we had a wonderfull time. We stayed in the "Love shack" & it was very cozy. We enjoyed the fireplace & the jacuzzi tub was wonderfull. The decor was great & was beyond our expectations. The breakfast was very good. Jennifer & Kathy were awesome. We hope to return for our 1st anniversary!!!

My husband and I stayed in one of the Tobacco Cabins last year and had a great experience!. We had spent the day in Mt. Airy shopping and sight-seeing. The last night we were there I was looking at pictures we had taken and unknowingly dropped my SD card. I had filled up the card and was using a new one in my camera. It wasn't until I got home (Alabama) that I realized I had lost it and was devastated. Not only were there pictures of our tirip, the card had pictures of our grandson's first birthday party and Christmas. I called Jennifer to ask if anyone had found it and they had not. She assured me that she would look extensively for it. I knew that the last place I remembered seeing it was in the cabin. After speaking with Jennifer on several occasions, she called one day to say that my card had been found down in the sofa. I was so relieved and happy. Jennifer and the staff not only made our visit at the cabin a great one, they went out of their way after we left to search for my picture card. Thank you so much staff for making my year and I do plan to visit you agan.

Wow! What a romantic place to remember the "honey" from your honeymoon! The rustic yet first class accomdations of the cabin was wonderful! What can be more romantic than a real wood fire, a mug of fresh coffee and then a soak in the jaccuzi tub for two? The huge bed was so cozy in a large loft with a beautiful view off of the balcony and out the window, we had a wonderful get away and have already recomended it to our friends! The innkeepers were so friendly and the breakfast was wonderful!

Can't say enough about Pilot's Knob! We had the most romantic wonderful time here! Will be back soon hopefully! Everything you could ask for!!!!

Hello, First time I had stayed at the B & B and it is not just a romantic getaway. The ladies I went to high school, (have been graduated for 30 years) still get together once a month. There are eight in our group and five were able to come up for the weekend of New Year's. We wanted a new and exciting adventure to start our new year. (Also, 50th birthdays this year) We were not disappointed. The Southwest suite was perfect. Loved the gas fireplace and the setting, very clean and neat. (would have only changed the size of the TV) We went to Pilot Mountain State Park and hiked up to some of the overlooks and got some great photos. Even went back at sunset to take more photos. Walked around the property at lake, wonderful frozen fountain there. (I am a photographer and got lots of photos for my calendar for 2011) Then also walked down to the swinging bridge and got another "group" shot there. Breakfast was awesome with a good variety of foods and fruits. Did not want to leave we had so much fun. It was very relaxing and just what we needed to start our new year off with wonderful friends. Even made our reservations for next year.

This is by far the most romantic place to stay. it is quiet and very private. I think it almost made my guy cry when we arrived and walked in the cabin. We started planning our next visit before we even fell a sleep.

We just spent 2 of the most wonderful days at Pilot Knob Inn. You guys ROCK!! Loved being there on Sun. and Mon. So quiet. We checked out almost every cabin and suite to make plans for our next visit. Thanks, Jennifer and Kathy for all you do. Your love of the property and guests is so evident.

This was my first time at the Pilot Knob Inn. It was reccommended by my neighbors so we booked one of the cabins. The location was very easy to get to but it's set back from the road so it felt very remote. The cabin was small on square footage but very cozy. We had everything we needed. We purchased some wine from the local vineyards and enjoyed the rustic fireplace with the ton of wood they provided. They next morning we were pleasantly surprised with the included breakfast. There was a ton of delicious food and the service provided by Jennifer and Kathy was great. Wonderful people, wonderful stay. We will be going back and recommending to others.
5 on November 17, 2009
Went wine tasting for the day and settled in to our private cabin at this B&B. Could not have been any more wonderful. Sat by the fire drinking wine. Very romantic. Breakfast is included in the morning and it was amazing. Staff/owner are some of the nicest, warmest people I've ever met. Will do anything to make your stay the most enjoyable possible. DEFINITELY going back and bringing friends!
4.6 on November 16, 2009
My wife and I had a blast at the B&B. We came up for a Yadkin Valley Wine tour, and enjoyed the B&B just as much. We were only able to stay one night, but look forward to coming back for additional nights. When you come up, make sure you get the cheesecake added. It is GREAT!
4.6 on November 15, 2009
My wife and I wanted to get away for a couple of days. We looked at some cabins farther away from home, but decided on Pilot Knob. We're glad that we did. Cabin #2 was great, clean, and cozy. The breakfast was very good. We plan to return in the future, and would highly recommend Pilot Knob to anyone looking for a romantic get-away.

My husband and I live very close, but with three kids we need an occasion getaway. This was our third time visiting Pilot Knob Inn. We love it! We have stayed in three different cabins since we started visiting and every one was great. Fireplaces, jacuzzi tub, comfortable atmosphere, great breakfast including fruits, waffles, sausage or bacon, eggs. I can't say enough about this place. One morning we woke up to a deer walking around on our porch. If you need a cozy getaway or just passing through, don't pass this place by. By reading all the guests entries in the guestbook, everybody loves it. Can't wait to surprise my husband again!!
4.8 on November 01, 2009
This unique bed and breakfast is nestled in the woods at the foot of Pilot Mountain. It is a very private and romantic retreat with excellent views of the mountain. Our room was very clean and we had everyting we needed. The innkeeper and staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was excellent. We will definitely visit this B&B again. Mike & Sandee Lambert, Richfield, NC

I booked a two night stay at this inn for my husband and myself for our third anniversary. We have nine children and four grandkids and 3 St. Bernards. We never had a honeymoon and with all them people to tend to we were in need of this mini vacation. This place was FANTASTIC! The owners and staff were beyond exceptional, very caring and extremely courteous. The room was ready and also exceeded our expectations when we arrived. It was hastle free. We just went into our room and began enjoying. The breakfast was absolutely AMAZING. The waffles are great and I dont even like waffles. The atmosphere was so enjoyable and the scenery was remarkable. We had a great view from our penthouse suite , of pilot mountain. We just could not have asked for a better place to stay and have a great third anniversary celebrated. THANK YOU SO MUCH! We definately reccommend this inn as well we plan to return as soon as we can.
5 on October 24, 2009
What a wonderful place! So very cozy and romantic! Great food! Great view! Great things to do in the area! Very friendly people!! Will definitely go back!
4.8 on October 21, 2009
We try to stay at the Pilot Knob every fall but had missed a couple years. It is always such a wonderful getaway. It is rustic and well hidden. The view of Pilot Mountain is awesome. The breakfast is out of this world and Jennifer is always so helpful!!
5 on October 13, 2009
We were traveling from the Outer Banks back to the Nashville area and wanted to stay in a log cabin in the mountains on the way home. We couldn't have asked for a better experience! My husband never wanted to stay in a B & B even though I've stayed in many through the years in the US and in Europe. This has changed his mind. The only problem was that we couldn't fit the cabin in our vehicle to bring it home! If we lived closer, we would FREQUENT Pilot Knob Inn!
5 on October 10, 2009
My wife and I had a wonderfully peaceful and fun 31st wedding anniversary. We were impressed at how clean our cabin was and very comfy. The morning breakfast was absolutely delicious. I almost slept in...glad I didn't...fresh blackberries on top of homemade waffles with scrambled eggs and turkey bacon. Delicious! Will not be taking chances if you stay at Pilot Knob Inn...you will just have to figure out when to come back!
4.8 on October 06, 2009
Awesome! We cannot wait to go back! We have decided to make this an annual destination! We loved our cabin, and the area surrounding it! The Breakfast was outstanding! We will be back! :-)
5 on October 02, 2009
My wife and I were looking for a short getaway and were blessed to have found this location! What an outstanding value with an ideal setting and location with a genuine touch of elegance and class! We loved the room and furnishings and felt right at home. Everything was outstanding and we will go back.

We had a marvelous time. The cabin was very quaint. This is a great place for some relaxation.
5 on September 28, 2009
Husband and I celebrated our birthday with a get-a-way. Beautiful scenary, secluded area but close enough to attractions and state park. Hospitality is A+. Thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful, relaxing area.
4.6 on September 22, 2009
We came to Pilot Knob Inn for our honeymoon in 2006, and came back for our anniversary this year. We will definitely be back again. We love this place. The staff are among the most friendly people you will ever meet. The campus is a beautiful, secluded get-away. Nice little bass lake on site in which we caught and released about 6 large-mouth in two hours. Breakfast is amazing -- don't make the mistake of sleeping through it.
2.8 on September 22, 2009
My husband booked Cabin 2 as a total anniversary surprise. He knew how much I had wanted a cabin getaway, so he thought he had found a deal. Compared to other cabins, it was less expensive. Jennifer & Kathy were incredibly friendly and the breakfast is wonderful! Rooms review: Our cabin, however did not look like the photos. I feel they should advertise each cabin with the actual photos of that cabin. We had a loveseat in the livingroom with no coffee table, where a sofa is shown on the website. There was a chair, but being an anniversary, we wanted to spend time "together". Service: The service was very friendly, but our bathroom door was squeaky. We asked that the hinges be sprayed with some oil, but that didn't happen during our visit. Not a big deal, it's just that they said they would and they did not. Again, the value, was just okay for our cabin, other cabins might be different. Cleanliness: The floor of the shower definitely needed to be bleached or resurfaced and the tub was not exactly inviting either. The shower was not a "two-person" shower either, as the online ad displayed. There was also a log that had been left behind in the fireplace that had the entire cabin smelling of old smoke. Once we removed it, that was fine. Dining - the breakfast is everything promised! It was very tasty and Jennifer and Kathy are great hostesses. Would we return? Maybe we would go to the B&B, but not back to the cabin. The Innkeepers are more than friendly - so it's worth looking into, but ask questions.
3.2 on September 20, 2009
We stayed in a cabin for two nights. It was very homey and relaxed, well renovated and nicely furnished. Loved being able to bring breakfast back to the cabin the first morning. It was wonderful to be so close to Pilot Knob State Park, and we loved Soppers Restaurant in the town of Pilot Knob. The only negative comments would be the too-hard mattress, and the lack of a step to get into the whirlpool tub.
5 on September 20, 2009
We were pleasantly surprised with the Pilot Knob Inn. The Inn has a secluded feel, but very easy to find and close to area attractions. We stayed in the Castle Room, which was elegant, but very warm and cozy. A must for a romantic getaway.
4.8 on September 15, 2009
It was a birthday present for my girlfriend. It was one of the most beautiful experience i have ever had. And she was so happy. The Southwest Honeymoon cabin was great. The staff at breakfast was really very nice. We will visit again.

My husband & I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary on September 11th. We stayed in the beautiful & spacious Southwest Honeymoon Suite. It greatly exceeded our expectations. It was so serene and tranquil. The jacuzzi was absolutely fabulous. It was truly well oversized for two! The bed slept like a dream. The breakfast was delicious. They had the best waffles in the world! The scenery was gorgeous. We loved the cool breeze as we rocked on the front porch of the suite. Jennifer & Kathy are absolute DOLLS! They made us feel so special. We are already checking the calendar to plan our return trip to this terrific B & B.

I suprised my husband with a weekend get away and we loved it. It is very rustic and the grounds are beautiful. It is now our new getaway.
4.6 on September 08, 2009
Although we live less than two hours away, this was the perfect retreat for our fourth anniversary. As soon as we settled in to Cabin #0 (The Love Shack) it was if we were miles away from home and totally relaxed. Everything from the room, the jacuzzi for two, and the fantastic breakfast each morning added to the experience. We relaxed, explored, fished, had a picnic and thoroughly enjoyed the time away. The staff was wonderfull, and it was nice to see the dedication the owner and staff had to our experience and privacy. We look forward to coming back in the fall.

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in the Castle room. Clear to see maintenance on facility and housekeeping is lacking. Not sure how long the owners have had possession but clear they have not put much money into business. They were not there during our stay. Breakfast consisted of scrambled eggs, sausage, toast, and waffles every morning. Worst breakfast of any B&B we have ever stayed in. We thought after reading all the reviews that our experience would be better than it was.
We are very sorry when any customer is not satisfied with their stay at our inn. We strive daily to meet the needs and expectations of our guest. Due to circumstances beyond our control we were required to be out of town during your stay. I wish our staff had been notified of your dissappointment we would have released you from your reservaion. Since the purchase of our inn, nine years ago, we work daily at maintaining the cleanliness and quality of our inn. We have been fortunate enough to recieve several prestegious awards including top 12 inns worldwide on bedandbrakfast.com and maitain a superior rating by our inspectors. We would love a chance to work with you in the future. Thanks! Jennifer Allen

My husband and I rented a tobacco barn cabin for vacation. The cabin was very clean and confortable. The staff Kathy checked on us to be sure that everything was at hand that could be needed. The breakfast each morning was outsanding. Jennifer the owner was present in the morning, at breakfast, also helping Kathy and inquiring on our stay, to be sure everything was going well for us. The hospitality was exceptional and I would recommend this B & B to anyone. I will definitely return! Also if you like history and the good old days the area has several things to keep you entertained. Pilot Mountain was beautiful.

I wanted to surprise my husband so I blind-folded him and took him to Pilot Knob Inn, which is only a few miles from our home. When we got there, it was so awesome. I took him to the door still blind-folded and then unfolded the surprise. He was so shocked. He is usually the romantic one but I wanted to just get away to relax for the weekend and thats just what we did :) We fished for a while and then we got in the hottub. The next day, we layed around and was just lazy after we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast cooked by Kathy. She is the sweetest thing! I really couldn't have pulled it off without Jennifer's help. I thought she was going to crack up after seeing my husband blind folded. Thanks so much for a wonderful weekend Jennifer and Kathy. You made our stay even better than I could have ask for...

This was an extraordinary highlight of our first vacation together. While not an official honeymoon, it certainly had the feeling of one when we arrived at this secluded "Castle Room". It felt like we had entered a wonderland and our stay here brought back all those feelings of falling in love all over again. We felt like we were being treated like royalty even before we learned that the walls in the room had been imported from a castle in Versailles, France. If you are needing to connect or reconnect with your mate and want a place to do this, you will not be sorry if you choose this one.

A relaxing bit of elegant back country. My husband and I stayed in the Castle Room for a long weekend. Everything was absolutely wonderful: the room, the pool, the view, the breakfast. Can't wait to go back and try a cabin!

Wonderful setting, though you can hear traffic noise at times. Wonderful accomodations, nearby lake is a treat.

We stayed recently at this B&B for our honeymoon. We loved the privacy, space from others, and the facility was beautiful. The variety of foods offered at breakfast was enormous. All the employees were so nice and helpful. The location was great for wine touring, visiting natural parks and seeing local color. We would love to return in the future.
4.6 on July 19, 2009
My husband and I went to get away for a few days and found this B&B online. We were so surpise when we arrived. When we walked into our place (the castle room) we where amaze how beautiful this palce was. Will go back again and telling other if they want a great place to get away go here.
4.8 on July 19, 2009
What a great trip! We only live two hours away so it was a great little one night out of town trip. The cabins were perfect, rustic and cozy. The fact that they are all seperate cabins, and therefor a little more private, is a big plus. The grounds are beautiful. Took a quick little drive up to the top of the mountain to watch the sunset, don't know of many other places where you can do that. The breakfast was SUPERB! Will definately be coming back here next time we need to get away.
5 on July 14, 2009
My husband and I were looking for somewhere kinda close to hav an overnight getaway. After searching on the internet for MANY hours, I found the Pilot Knob B & B and booked it. WOW....this place is absolutely great. Clean, friendly, private, and did I mention clean ??? So very relaxing and what a great time to reconnect. The "no kids" policy is just awesome - and we have kids - but we were looking for a break and this place has it all !! Thanks to Jen for making us feel at home - nothing is left out - we will definitely be back........very soon !!!
5 on July 13, 2009
My husband and I stayed in Cabin 5 to celebrate our honeymoon on our first anniversary! I recommend staying at Pilot Knob B&B to everyone I know. The rustic tobacco barns have been fully updated, decorated perfectly, cozy and romantic! We spent most of our time inside the cabin, but we also enjoyed hiking, swimming and taking in the views from our porch as well as a 2nd story porch that overlooked the back of the cabin! We have decided to stay here every year to celebrate our anniversary! Mostly because it suited our personalities so well and despite how much we enjoy taking our kids on vacations we know that Jennifer will not allow them to come! :] Therefore we can look forward to a minimum of one weekend a year in a fabulously cozy and romantic cabin!! The jacuzzi was tremendous! Other details will remain private! This is a must! Forever and ever! It was worth every cent! PLUS!!!! They serve a phenomenal breakfast every day! homecooked by someone else! It was delicious, I overate every morning we were there! Please go! Book your reservations today!!

This place was way above all our expectations. I saw a side of my husband I never saw before. He was romantic and truely fell in love with the experience. It is a memory that we will never forget. The owners were so friendly and we instantly felt at home. We had a cute bunch of kittens that played on our porch and 2 cute dogs that followed us on our walk around the lake. We are already planning on going back someday. This is absolutely a MUST if you need to reconnect with eachother...I never even know a place like was still around....I fell even more in love with my husband..and I think him with me

Our room was spacious, clean and well-appointed. Breakfast was very good, plentiful and included a generous variety of fresh fruit. The pool was very clean. The owner and staff were extremely friendly and helpful with directions to nearby restaurants, etc. We were very impressed!

We have celebrated serveral anniversaries at Pilot Knob and we have not been disappointed yet. We have stayed there when snow is on the ground and also in the heat of the summer. The breaksfast, rooms and southern hospitality are great representatives of the wonderful area.
5 on June 17, 2009
My husband & I recently celebrated our 27th anniversary here. EVERYTHING was wonderful - except ... we wanted to stay LONGER!!!! It was PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!!! As soon as we got home we started trying to figure out when we could return!! THANKS, GUYS!! Dale & Sandra Elkin, NC

Beautifull place. Peacfull. Nice pool. Tobacco cabins are nice but the bed is upstairs and the bathroom is downstairs. The breakfast is the best and Kathy makes it better. Great service.

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend get-away and absolutely loved it! Our suite was great and breakfast was amazing! We will definitely be back the next opportunity we get. Jennifer and Kathy were awesome. We loved everything about our stay here! We are reccomending it to everyone!
5 on June 15, 2009
This was by far the best get-away we have ever experienced....peace & quiet..nature abounds, like stepping back in time with all the modern ammenities..Will, Jennifer and Kathy are friendly, happy hosts...Our "Tobacco Cabin" was truly beautiful,filled with unique designer touches....do not hesitate...go and you will have a wonderful memory forever.....Sarasota, Florida

Pilot Knob Inn Bed & Breakfast was a wonderful get-a-way for us to celebrate our anniversary. We found it delightful and romantic (loved the outdoor hot tub!). We will definitely come back again to this wonderful place.

This is the third time I have stayed at Pilot Knob Inn, each time in a different cabin. I have enjoyed them all. It is very nice to just drive an hour from home and feel like you are in the middle of nowhere.
3.6 on May 20, 2009
We recently spent one night at the Pilot Knob Inn as we were passing through the area and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The quaint cabins were a peaceful and relaxing getaway for our anniversary. Our cabin was two stories with a living room and spacious bathroom on the main floor and bedroom loft upstairs. The cabins were clean and well kept and the owners were extremely friendly and accommodating. Although we have stayed at ritzier B&Bs, the value for the price was well worth it. We would gladly return and stay again.
4.4 on May 17, 2009
We just got engaged here last weekend and absolutely loved Pilot Knob. It made our weekend really special to be staying in such a lovely place with such wonderful owners/staff. We'll be going back for many years to come!
5 on May 12, 2009
We have had a tradition of going to the Pilot Knob B&B for over a decade. We try to spend a weekend close to our wedding anniversary. Our latest stay was perfect. The cottage was perfect, and the breakfast excellent!! The quality of the service is first rate, and the cottages are the ultimate in privacy, with the added benefit of being able to hike or just enjoy being outside reading on the porch or the back balcony porch of the cottage. We loved it!!
3.6 on May 11, 2009
I wanted to stay on the Blue Ridge Parkway, but the B&Bs were quite pricey. Selected this one and loved it. Very secluded and quiet. Great lake with canoe and paddle boats. Easy to find and lovely folk running it. Only drawback is the breakfast time, which is only 8:30-9:30 - who wants to get up that early when vacating?! Suggest giving guest the option of having a microwaveable b'fast in their cabin fridge, with fresh fruit and OJ.
5 on May 10, 2009
Great get away ! Loved the cabin, hot tub, and rainfall shower head. Veiw of Pilot Mountain is excellent! Will stay again!
5 on May 07, 2009
This is the second time we have stayed here and we are just as please as we were before. As a Mom of 6 this is my favorite place to relax and unwind with my husband. The rooms are beautiful, clean and relaxing. The whirlpool tub and bath beads awesome. Breakfast yummy!! The staff friendly and very helpful. I have asked to come again for my birthday. Thank you Jennifer!!!
4.6 on May 07, 2009
My wife and I have stayed at Pilot Knob twice now for anniversary weekends. Both times have been wonderful and we are already planning another visit later this summer. Jennifer runs a great Inn that is ideal for couples to get away for a few days. The suites are modern and well decorated. The jaccuzzi tubs are a great addition as well. The breakfast is great and service provided by Jennifer and Cathy is wonderful. I highly recommend a stay at Pilot Knob if you need some time away!
5 on April 30, 2009
My boyfriend and I stayed here for a romantic getaway and we could not have been more pleased. We stayed in the Heavenly Hideaway and we highly suggest it for a couple looking for some peace and quiet: front porch, whirlpool tub, standing separate shower, gas fireplace and a little DirectTV for when you need a little break. Breakfast is great and served promptly in the morning and the location is great for visiting nearby vineyards and other sights. It's quiet, cozy and extremely clean. The staff is incredibly friendly and you cannot beat the value for the price. We recommend the Pilot Knob Inn!
5 on April 20, 2009
Me and my husband stayed 2 nights at the Pilot Knob Inn for our honeymoon and it was even better than what we expected. The staff was extremely friendly and were there to help out in any way possible. The room was amazing and even better in person than the pictures on the website. The setting was peaceful and beautiful, especially since it was April and lovely in spring. We loved our stay and would highly recommend!
5 on April 17, 2009
My husband and I visited Pilot knob April 14th and 15th. We got an unexpecting phone call from home about 5:00`clock in the morning which woke us up way to early, so we decided to walk around before breakfast. The scenery was beautiful! We walked to the swinging bridge and took priceless pictures. We walked to the top of the mountain where we then started seeing big paw prints, I then wanted to turn around and go back. The night before we walked around the place with one of Will`s and Jennifer`s dogs named Jean, She was very unique. She ran around like she was doing her part by keeping unwanted varmets off the Inn, It was like she was always working, It was so cool watching her. Everybody was so nice and helpful. We stayed in cabin 4, It was like Little house on the Prairie! I hope to come back real soon. Thank-you.
5 on April 12, 2009
My husband and I eloped and were looking for a place to spend a few days before going back into the real world. Pilot Knob Inn was the perfect place - the cabins were rustic, comfortable and cozy while the innkeepers were an absolute delight. A late night spring thunderstorm was passing through and we drank a glass of wine while sitting on the front porch of the cabin and listened to the rain. Absolutely wonderful and we will be back!
5 on April 10, 2009
My husband and I had a wonderful time here. It was peaceful. The jacuzzi tub was great and the food was excellent. We will be going back every year for our anniversary. We had the best experience we have ever had in a cabin. The hostess and her help were very nice and helpful.

My husband took me and our puppy to Pilot Knob B&B for my 40th birthday. We had a wonderful time. I loved the wood burning fireplace in the living area. The breakfast was wonderful--alot to choose from. We will visit again soon.
5 on April 05, 2009
We had such a wonderful time at the Inn. The accomodations, the breakfast, and the hospitality were topnotch! We plan on sharing this place with many of our family and friends. Fantastic hiking and horse trails, surrounded by a multitude of wildlife, creeks and beautiful foilage. Within minutes of Mount Airy and Pilot Mountain, the real Andy Griffith "Mayberry." In addiiton, Pilot Knob State Park is a spectacular breathtaking view that you can see from your room, as well as from the dining breakfast room. Just a fabulous stay for couples of all ages!!
5 on April 05, 2009
What a great place - went with 2 other couples. Stayed in Cabin #2, #3, #6 and it was perfect for relaxing, quiet fun weekend! Service for breakfast and food was a wonderful way to start each morning! Loved not having to be at breakfast at a certain time and have a breakfast room with chairs for couples, groups, etc. Jennifer was so accomodating and contacted us for any and all questions prior to arrival! The cabins are amazing coming from several of us that grew up on tobacco farms! Common area w/gazebo for grilling was so nice! We will be back!
5 on April 02, 2009
Was far better than expected! Will stay again. Breakfast was great.
5 on March 28, 2009
We came here for a relaxing weekend away and to spend quality time together. It was exactly what we needed! A beautiful cabin with gas logs to keep you toasty on a cold rainy night, a huge comfortable bed, totally relaxing hot tub and wonderful breakfast the next morning!! Enjoyed the day in Mt. Airy strolling down Main Street and visiting all the shops and ate a late lunch at Goobers 52. The perfect getaway without being far from home!! Highly recommend!!
5 on March 25, 2009
We arrived on Friday, March 20, 2009. Our room was ready. We were welcomed by very pleasant staff, and went directly to our cabin. Cabin was extremely clean, well organized and met our expectations. We stayed for one night. The next morning went to a lovely, excellent breakfast. Was informed by staff to take our time leaving. We left on time and we hope to return to Pilotknob Bed and Breakfast again. This has been a most memorable time. Thank you again to the outstanding staff members. C and R Hall

We come to the Pilot Knob Inn every year atleast once sometimes twice. There isn't a better place on earth in my opinion to get the peace & relaxation you need.

My husband and I stayed at this inn in "The Love Shack" Mar. 13-15, 09. This was our 3rd trip to Pilot Knob Inn. We always have a wonderful time. The cabins are cozy and quaint. The breakfast is fabulous and the service is more than you could ask for. We'll go back again and again.
4.6 on March 17, 2009
This was my first B&B experience. Not being a "couple" I had never checked into staying at one. But my friend and I need some 'mommy' time, so we booked online. I was thrilled!! The cabin was cozy, real wood fireplace. We did nothing but rest, read, talk, watch movies, and pamper ourselves. I will be going back!!

This was our first stay at a Bed and Breakfast. It was wonderful. The breakfast and accomodations were really nice.

My girlfriend and I planned this weekend about 2 months ago hoping for good hiking weather, but it rained all weekend. It was a great chance for us to just talk and han out in a very cool place with no distractions. The cabins are rustic and beautiful and the fireplace and hot tub were all that we needed to make a memorable weekend. The shopping in the area is great if you like country stores and antiques. We are planningon going back to this place again in the future.
5 on March 16, 2009
The cabins are quaint and cozy, the breakfast suberb, and the fishing full of action! Will & Jennifer are very acomidating, and Cathy really makes you feel at home.
5 on March 15, 2009
This place is out of this world. You truly feel that you are someplace else. It is so peaceful and warm and welcoming even in the rain. The cabin was so much more then we expected. I would highly recommend to anyone who just wants to get away for a day or two (you will want more time believe me) to make sure you put this on your calendar NOW..... We can't wait to go back the people there were so friendly and they made sure that you have everything that you need and more. Eddy & Sonja Patton Eden, NC

The room was very private and the bathtub was wonderful! It was cute and rustic. Will definitely go back!

He proposed in Hawaii and we honeymooned at Pilot Knob Inn! After the stress of planning a wedding, this was the perfect place to unwind. We were able to sit back, relax and focus on one another! After a delicious, made to order breakfast we toured the area and a couple of wineries. We went back to Cabin #5 and enjoyed the jacuzzi that evening. Although Hawaii and Pilot Knob are thousands of miles apart, they are both on the top of our list for places we will be revisiting! Thanks to Jennifer, our honeymoon was wonderful!
5 on March 12, 2009
My husband & I go every year we have stayed in every cabin and cabin #2 is our favorite. They have such a lovely place and the grounds and service are top notch. We love the down home charm the innkeepers have. It's a place to go and appreciate what god has provided for us and it is all there at Pilot Knob Inn. Nice rocking chairs on all porches bring a book and your mate and you will never regret it rain or shine you will have a great time. Amy & Scott

We stayed in the Pilot Knob Suite and it was awesome. The room was big, clean and quiet. This is a great place for a one night or weekend getaway. The room also has it's own private hot tub out back which makes it even better. It's worth the money.
5 on March 09, 2009
Each cabin that we have staid in has been unique and fantastic. We love going there and always leave anticipating the next time we will be able to return. We never leave disappointed. The service is great, the food is fantastic, and the atmosphere is always perfect.

This was the first time my husband and I tried a Bed and Breakfast and it was a joy. The room was ready on time. It was clean and was above our expectations. We were able to reconnect and enjoy the nature around us. We just left and are already planning our next trip to Pilot Knob Inn.

my wife and i went to pilot knob inn as a birthday present for her. i organized the whole thing including finding a baby sitter for our 2.5 year old. as we were leaving our house for the weekend, it began to rain...and rained the entire time we were gone. luckily, the inn was so enjoyable that it didn't matter. we stayed in cabin #2 and loved the rustic charm. firewood on the front porch so we didn't have to get rained on, jacuzzi tub for my wife to soak and relax in. breakfast was great in the charming breakfast room. we ended up chatting with 2 other couples and the owner of the inn around the kitchen island! the owner was charming and very friendly. we plan on returning again when the hiking trails and lake can be utilized. thanks for a wonderful time!
4.6 on March 02, 2009
When we arrived everyone was very friendly and helpful. I have been to many B&B's and this by far was just what we were looking for. The Castle room was beautiful and secluded by far worth the rates. My Fiance Paul this was his first experience at a B&B he loved it just what we both needed !!! We both want to thank you for making our first time stay very special we will never forget it. We will be seening you soon. I would recommend you at Pilot Knob its a very special place for us. We will be back... Paul & Anna..virginia

This was our 2nd visit to the cabins. It is close to home for us, but away from everything that consumes our time at home. We love the privacy, the coziness, the excuse to do nothing!! We plan to make this our winter getaway! The wood burning fireplace is awesome on a cool evening. Great job Will, Jennifer, and Kathy.

We stayed in one of the cabins, and enjoyed it greatly. The decor has personality, and the cabin was very comfortable. Nice short hikes on the property, and Pilot Mountain State park is only a few minutes away.
5 on February 19, 2009
We went rock climbing at Pilot Mountain making the Pilot Knob Inn a perfect place to stay since it is very close to Pilot Mountain State Park. The Love Shack is the cabin we stayed in and it was so romantic we can't wait to go back. The fireplace was a great place to sit and have wine after getting chilling sitting in the rocking chairs on the porch enjoying the crisp evening air. We can't wait to go back!

My husband and I went to Pilot knob for our anniversay and the pictures online didn't do it justice. It was beautiful and the mountain was there everywhere you turned. The people were very friendly and the room was huge and clean. The jacuzzi was to die for we didn't want to leave. Breakfast was great and filling Jennifer is a whiz. Thanks for everything we had a relaxing and wonderful time. We will return soon. Dorothy and Frankie Price

The innkeeper "Jennifer" was very nice and very helpful an absolute pleasure to talk too! We stayed in Cabin #3 the weekend of 1/30/09 to 2/1/09 and throughly enjoyed ourselves. The Cabin was cozy and warm even though it was extremely cold that weekend. The fireplace and jacuzzi tube was a added bonus to the already neat and unique little tobacco cabin. We loved the secludedness of the cabin from the rest of the inn which allowed us to just getaway from everything and enjoy the time with each other. It was a great getaway from our normal everyday weekend of work and stress. We loved the fact the Pilot Mountain state park was just a hop skip and a jump up the road from the Inn. Well within walking distance with lots of wildlife to see and hiking with great scenic views. We throughly enjoyed the Drive Inn Movie Theater as well in Mt. Airy. That was a great throw back to the old days at a great price. Overall we recommend this Inn to anyone who loves the Mountains and Foothills, and would love to have a little romantic getaway with local attractions all within a short driving distance. I have already directed many of our freinds to the Pilot Knob Inn already for their next weekend trip. We would just like to see a big THANK YOU! to Jennifer for her kindness and help. We loved your Inn and will be back very soon!

This is a unique B&B that not only has suites available, but also 100 to 200 year old tobacco barns have been refitted to provide quaint private get aways. All in a mountain location that is still near many fine restuarants and attractions.

We have enjoyed cabins 1 & 2. We will return, each stay has been delightful. In the future we must stay in a suite...broken ankle makes the stairs too hard to negotiate.
4.4 on January 22, 2009
My wife and I stayed for two nights in January in cabin #2. In spite of the much below normal temperatures, our cabin was toasty warm both from the fireplace and the central heating system. The cabin was clean, comfortable and cleverly laid out. We thorougly enjoyed the company of the innkeeper, Jennifer, and the two delicious breakfasts she served us. Hiking in the area was great. Would recommend this to someone who wishes to try something a bit different but without any risk. The cabins are clean, comfortable and have all the creature comforts you would like including sattelite TV, microwave and refrigerator.

The occasion was our first night as a married couple. The setting was the Castle Room at the Pilot Knob Inn Bed & Breakfast. The atmosphere was magical. As the two of us walked into the room, and as the evening progressed, the Castle Room gave us the opportunity to share memories that will not fade with the passing of time. The elegance of the appointments added such wonderful flavor and comfort to our stay. Outside the temperature dropped into single digits, but we experienced the magic and warmth of a beautiful fireplace. While the wind howled outside, we experienced the quiet of the sauna and the comfort of the inroom jacuzzi. The inkeepers knew the exact balance to strike between meeting our every need and in providing a very private experience that we will remember always. If you want our ultimate endorsement...we plan to return for more magical moments. Thank you Pilot Knob Inn!

This was our third visit to Pilot Knob it only gets better each time. We truly cannot find anything that needs improvement. We love the property and the owners. They have really improved the property over the years and put their heart into everything they do there. This is the perfect place to catch up with your lover.

The cabins are secluded and wonderful. They are neat and clean and have all the extras you would want. You can even bring your dogs and horses if you'd like. Breakfast was good with lots of fresh fruit but could have had a bit more variety. It is in a convenient location within walking distance to the state park and easy to find. The only drawback about the location is is is very close to the highway and the traffic can be heard from your room.
4.8 on January 17, 2009
My husband and I enjoy the quiet and especially the privacy. We have been staying there for almost 7 years! With all the people that visit we are always remembered, that's very special to us both! We recently stayed, our first experience, in the Castle Room. It's just beautiful, very private, offers a sauna and whirlpool, antique furniture, I simply cannot do it justice in a description.

The cabin was the perfect setting as Jennifer told me it would be to propose to the love of my life. I will always remember Pilot Knob Inn as a wonderful place. Everything was exceptional whirlpool for two & great open fireplace perfect place for romantic evening. Fantastic Breakfast!

My wife and our dog jake spent just one night in Cabin number two. We were on our way to a ski weekend and my only regret would be that we only spent one night at Pilot Knob Inn. The breatfast was great, and they are pet friendly. The cabin was clean and comfortable and quite large. Will and Jennifer were very friendly. I think we'll be back for sure.

The Pine Knob Suite has a great hot tub outdoors and gas logs inside. We've stayed there a couple of times and looked inside many of the rooms/cabins. There's not a bad room in the inn and we will return to try as many as we can! The Innkeepers are great people who do a fantastic job taking care of their customers, and the breakfast is wonderful. They all worked very hard to make sure we were comfortable. We like to go and visit the local wineries each year and just relax in the area. Give it a try, you won't be sorry!

Stayed in honeymoon cabin-it was a lovely stay as the staff was warm and friendly, the cabin was rustic and charming with rocking chairs, jacuzzi, gas logs and lovely views with the lake and mountains- when we arrived two deer bounded in front of us as we were entering the grounds and then we were directed to our cabin that had already had porch lights turned on as well as the interior lights awaiting our arrival-breakfast was a true Southern delight and it was the cozy relaxed atmosphere we were hoping we would find.
5 on January 04, 2009
We have been going to the Pilot Knob Inn, for many years. We have stayed in most of the cabins at lease once. Now the plan is to stay in all the suites as well. We will definitely be back. Jennifer and her staff are great!

Pilot Knob Inn is a the best B & B. We really enjoyed our stay. Everyone was so friendly and helpful and the breakfast was so great. We will stay there again and again.

This is an amazing Bed & Breakfast get-away.. The Cabins are awesome full of amenities and the owners are very attentive to your needs.. The breakfast was very good and filling.. The grounds are beautiful with lots to see and do.. I feel very blessed in meeting the owners and staff at Pilot Knob B&B Inn, I look forward to spending many more special occasions there and continuing a beautiful friendship..

One of our daughters found Pilot Knob Inn Bed and Breakfast for us on the internet when we were looking for a place to get away for our 20th anniversary. We loved it, and we hope to go back soon. We got home today, and we have already told some of our friends about it. We want them to go back with us. It was a wonderful, relaxing weekend.
5 on December 27, 2008
Staying at the Pilot Knobb Inn was absolutely a dream come true. Beautiful grounds, wondeful people...heaven in North Carolina. We can't wait to return. My husband had just returned from his third deployment to Iraq when we vacationed at the Pilot Knobb Inn. Next time we will stay at least a week! We can't wait to stay in Cabin 2 again!
4.2 on December 26, 2008
My husband and I planned a three night pre Christmas get away and stayed in the Heavenly Hideaway. I have bad allegergies and typically have sinus problems in hotels. I had no such problems here as the room was dust and smoke free. Fantastic. We happened to stay on the coldest day of the year and still found lots to do in the immediate area. The breakfast was very good and Jennifer and Kathy were very friendly This was the perfect relaxation break before we hit the holiday season.
5 on December 26, 2008
We recently stayed in Cabin #5 & it was much better than I would have anticipated. You could see the fire from the jacuzzi. Our porch was loaded with wood our bathroom was overstocked with plush towels. The breakfast was way more than a feast. We were pleased and will be back.
5 on December 24, 2008
This was a great place where my wife and I celebrated our 20 wedding anniversary. The rooms were neat, clean and romantic. The location and view from this B&B was inspiring as well as located relatively close (5-35 miles) to many things to do like visiting Mayberry (Mt. Airy), wineries, state parks, and shopping malls. This was a great getaway just before Christmas. I think we will come back again during the fall to see the beautiful fall colors as well as during the grape harvesting season and go on multiple winery tours.
5 on December 17, 2008
My husband and I recently stayed in the Honeymoon Cabin. We were celebrating our 7th Anniversary. What a wonderful experience. The room was just what I was hoping for. Breakfast was great. Very friendly staff. When you go away from your family and children, you sometimes miss them. At breakfast the ladies ask me about my family. That was so nice. I especially liked the dining room set-up. I have been to other bed & breakfasts' and everyone has to eat together. Here they had small individual tables...that was really romantic and nice. Diffently hope to make this an annual retreat!!
5 on December 16, 2008
Me and my boyfriend had the best time at Pilot Knob Inn. The people there were extremely nice. It was quiet and peaceful. The best "get away"! You best bet that we will be back next year!

My husband and I had a wonderful weekend stay in the Penthouse Suite at the Pilot Knob Inn, in Pilot Mtn. NC. The room was gorgeous and the hot tub in the room made it even better.
5 on December 14, 2008
We were very pleased with our suite we stayed in the Penthouse Suite with the Hottub by the fireplace! It has an amazing view of Pilot Mountain & was very clean. It was really nicer than the pictures online. We cannot wait to come back in the summer. The Ashburn's from Charlotte, NC

We really enjoyed the warm and coziness of the inn and the kindness of it's keepers. The breakfast was tasty and we would recommend the Inn to others.

This stay was a Christmas gift from my daughter and son-in-law. They had been here a few weeks earlier and loved it so much she took me back to share their love for this place. I highly recommend it!!!
5 on December 10, 2008
I cannot recommend this B&B highly enough. It was awesome! The cabin was spotless. After a nice long stay in the jacuzzi tub, we enjoyed a nice fire. I could feel the stress leaving me! Breakfast was wonderful, too. I can't wait to go back.
4.8 on December 09, 2008
My fiancee and I stayed a week (October 14 thru 21, 2008) in the Southwest Honeymoon Suite. The stay was indeed wonderful and the owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. A full breakfast every morning was nice if you wanted it - we took part several times but also had the ability to prepare our own at a later time - we liked to sleep in a little. The area was beautiful, the atmosphere in the suite very romantic - highly re4commend it for new and old lovers.
5 on December 07, 2008
Im glad i found this perfect romantic getaway...I loved the authentic cabins with the wood burning fireplace..The wirlpool tub was very nice...The cabin we stayed in was the "Love Shack" and was perfect for us on our 16th anniversary....The breakfast was awesome and topped off our stay here!!
4.6 on December 07, 2008
We wanted a private place to getaway in the mountains to celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary and we found it!! The cabins were extremely romantic and perfect for the two of us. We loved the whirlpool tub and the wood burning fireplace made it all the more romantic.
2.6 on December 04, 2008
My husband & I just stayed at Pilot Knob in the Castle room with B&B.com certificates our children had given us. Cathy & Jennifer were very nice. The property was beautiful with a big variety of room types. I chose the Castle room online with a king bed option. I wish I would have gone with a cabin or someting a little brighter. The castle room was big but very dark. We like to play games when we're away & the lighting was not good for reading or playing games. We made due. The breakfast was the same as you could get at any hotel that offers a hot breakfast. I myself have made B&B breakfast recipes when I have people come to visit. There was nothing homemade but waffles. That part was very disappointing. The only other thing was that the room was not as clean as we thought it should have been ( clothes left in closet, flowers left in a vaseon mantel & 2 beer bottle caps in sauna ). Believe it or not, we had a great time. Being with my wonderful husband for 3 whole days was awesome. We went to Mount Airy shopping & sightseeing. We ate at some of the local spots. We also went to Sparta to cut down our Christmas tree. We have created alot of new memories. If we go back again I'd like to go back in the warmer weather.
4.4 on December 03, 2008
My husband surprised me for my birthday by taking me to the Pilot Knob Inn Bed and Breakfast and it was such a treat! The Pilot Knob Suite room was very spacious with a living room, bed, and private hot tub porch. The breakfast the next morning was delicious and very filling! I would love to come back and stay in one of the cabins.

11/29/08 WE ENJOYED OUR STAY IN THE "LOVE SHACK".IT WAS REAL COMFY AND COZY. LOVED THE JACUZZI AND THE FIREPLACE. MY HUSBAND AND I MADE SOME WONDERFUL MEMORIES.
4.4 on December 02, 2008
My husband and I enjoyed a second honeymoon of sorts, during his 4-day military leave before he left for Afghanistan. We stayed in one of the tobacco cabins, and it was perfect in every way - we soaked in the jacuzzi tub 'til we were prune-y, spent hours in front of the fire, and made a daily trip into Mt. Airy for a late lunch/early dinner. We felt absolutely secluded - we didn't even know there were other guests at the inn, until we saw 6 other couples at breakfast. And while having complete privacy, we were still close enough to all of the conveniences of Mt. Airy. We have some wonderful memories to carry with us over the next year of my husband's deployment, and look forward to visiting again when he returns home!

So wonderful. Peace and quiet. The wood burning fireplace and jacuzzi tub make this a place to fall in love all over again!

This was our second time visiting Pilot Knob Inn B&B. Our cabin was full of romance and passion. The cozy fireplace and the whirlpool tub gave us the romantic getaway that we were looking for. The love that we share for each other is a love that most people only dream of. His is my destiny and I am his. If you want to spend some much need quality time with your significant other, please don't hesitate to bring them here. The private and intimate cabins are to romantic to pass up. We will definately be returning next year.

My Husband and I needed somewhere close to stay for a night after our wedding, and Pilot knob Inn was the perfect getaway! We stayed in the penthouse suite and the room was so pretty and cozy. Jennifer is great and she even came to our room at 9:00 at night to help us get the gas logs lit! (we couldnt figure it out:) we will deffently be coming back. The Breakfast was delicious and the atmosphere was very romantic. THANKS SO MUCH FOR A WONDERFUL HONEYMOON

Great place for alone time with your mate. No children allowed on the property....fireplace was romantic, jacuzzi tub and breakfast in our cabin was a plus!!! We look forward to coming back

We stayed in the Southwest suit...it was decent but over priced for what you get. Around $425 for the weekend stay. While the people there were very nice and polite and the breakfast was great I probably woudn't go back. We stayed for a weekend and that is plenty for that area. There is some antique shopping in the area if that is your thing but not a whole lot and Pilot Mountain is very nice but it was pretty cold and windy the day we went up to the peak and couldn't really spend much time there. All in all I would recommend it if they didn't mind paying that much for an OK time.

My husband and I needed to just get away for a few days. I found Pilot Knob Inn on line and loved the rustic charm of the pictures and was not disappointed! The cabin was absolutely beautiful outside and as we entered we were both ready to lock the door and hide in the cabin's captivating embrace! Having a fireplace for a romantic fire and a huge comfy bed was wonderful but the part we enjoyed the most was the two person jacuzzi! There was no shortage of hot water for the multiple soaks! The cabin was clean, lots of towels including 2 bath sheets, having satelitte tv in the bedroom....I can't say enough about our experience at Pilot Knob Inn and are already planning a return trip. Thank you Jennifer and Kathy for a fantastic time!
5 on November 18, 2008
We love this place it is clean, friendly, private and romantic. We stay in the Pilot Knob Suite it has a Hot Tub under the stars. We have been there when it has rained and it just added to the atmosphere. The Breakfast is fulling and the Staff is great. This place is for all ages. Newly Weds to cpls. together for 50 years. We have met them all there and they agree with us. We give this place a AAA. Thanks Crystal and Jay

Want a gem of a find. Will go back and again and again!

nice woodburning fireplace-friendly hostess
5 on November 14, 2008
Just what we needed to have one night away from the real world. A real wood burning fireplace & a jacuzzi tub could not have made for a more perfect evening. Great outdoors for hiking in an extremely well kept up rustic enviroment. Breakfast was over the top. Marty & Kendra from Greensboro, NC
4.6 on November 14, 2008
Very private, secluded, romantic and affordable. We are telling all our friends about this great find!
5 on November 12, 2008
We have been to Pilot Knob Inn twice this past year and each time have thoroughly enjoyed our stay, once for our 39th anniversary in August and for my 63rd birthday in October. It is a very quaint place, the cabin atmosphere is very romantic, the inn keepers are super folks, and it's just far enough away in the woods to feel like you are really all alone in a big world. A great get-away place for couples!
4.2 on November 12, 2008
My husband and I enjoyed our stay very much! We live only about 70 miles from Pilot Mountain, so it's a great getaway in a short amount of time. The accomodations,food and especially the scenery are exceptional. We first stayed at the Inn in 1992. Now that our children are older we hope to visit more often.

As any man will tell you, earning "at-a-boys" (earning points with the wife) are hard to do and especially keep. Our stay at the Pilot Knob Inn B & B earned me enough to stay in the plus side for a while, and when I run low again, I know where to earn more. Having missed our anniversary, number 27, (lost a lot of at-a-boys) and not taking away time for a family vacation, my wife stated "We need to get away for a trip." She prefers rustic cabins and I prefer "creature comforts". What a surprise when I read the offerings at Pilot Knob Inn B & B. I searched the web for others but kept coming back to this one. It had ALL the things we were both looking for . Porches to sit own and relax while enjoying stunning views, jacuzzi to soak in, sauna and a bed that you couldn't help but oversleep in. When we finally got stirring in the morning, we had a "more than excellent" breakfast of eggs, waffles, meat, coffee and juice. Our hostess gave us excellent information on local attractions and how to find them. We visited the lake but didn't have time to take out the paddle boats or fish. We ended our stay by going hiking on the mountain that we had been looking at during breakfast-- "Pilot Mtn. State Park" and from the hiking view was able to find the Inn from our view near the Pinnacle! I scored BIG "at-a-boy" points at this Inn and plan on coming back for more !
4.6 on November 10, 2008
We had a wonderful time here! The Innkeeper and staff are so nice and the breakfast was wonderful. I love the cabins and how peaceful the whole property feels. We will for sure go back again!

my wife and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary at the Pilot Knob Inn Bed and Breakfast. The cabin that we stayed in was extremely clean and had all of the comforts of a fine hotel. The breakfast that was served was one of the finest you will ever eat. While we were there the leaves were turning, and the view of Pilot Mt. was beautiful. We hope to return in the spring. The staff there was very friendly and made sure everything was first rate . We enjoyed our stay and couldn't have found a more romantic spot to celebrate our 10th anniversary.
4.2 on November 03, 2008
This is a unique place to go and spend time alone in a beautiful setting with the one you love. It is relaxing and serene. You have the option to enjoy the area you are staying in or visit different sites in the area. I advise staying. Pure enjoyement!
5 on November 02, 2008
Our Stay at the Pilot Knob Inn was exceptional. We stayed in the Pilot Knob suite with the outside private hottub the suite was much better than what we had expected by the pictures on their website. We were very pleased we stayed a third night and since the room was open Jennifer gave us a great deal "Thanks!" we loved it and will be back.

1. Secluded but close to Mount Airy and other activities. 2. Fantastic view of Pilot Mountain.

My husband and I found this B & B online and we stayed there for our honeymoon and it was WONDERFUL!! It was everything it talks about on it's website and more. It was very quiet and private. We felt like we were the only ones there. The breakfast was great and Jennifer and her husband Will were super friendly and sweet. The area there is beautiful. We took walks along the trails through the woods and just hung out on the front porch of our Cabin. It was all around a terrific experience and we will def. be back soon. My hubby and I have decided to make this place our little romantic getaway each year!!! Thanks you guys...we will NEVER forget our honeymoon!!!!
5 on October 30, 2008
We loved this Bed & Breakfast! It's hard to find a secluded place that you can build your own fire! It is wonderful and we have visited several times and will definitely go back again and again - that is how much we enjoyed it and Jennifer is a sweetheart!

Penthouse was very nice. Enjoyed the indoor hot tub. Breakfast was delicious.

As two fellow extreme beach fans, our expectations were greatly exceeded at the pilot knob inn! We have been bitten by the "bed and breakfast bug" and will be back with all of our friend couples.
5 on October 21, 2008
I found this B & B online. This was a gift to my husband to celebrate his retirement. Really it was a gift to both of us. We had a wonderful time. We stayed in the honeymoon suite looking out the sliding glass doors at Pilot Mountain. Wish we stayed longer. If we are in the area again we will most definitely stay there again. Decor was beautiful. You could go rustic or contemporary. You had your own privacy with your own bathroom. You weren't bothered by any maids unless you wanted to be. The breakfast was great, eggs, waffles,meat,fruit,pastries. Jennifer was great. Wished we lived a little closer we would go more often. We highly recommend this. We are telling all of our family & friends about this one. Next time we would recommend the suite with the hot tub outside the clorine fumes were a little much for inside. Next time I think we will stay in one of the cabins, we saw the castle that looked gorgeous. Pilot Mountain state park is a must see. We were there in middle of October it was a beautiful time of year. Hope to go back again soon.
5 on October 20, 2008
The service was outstanding, and the personal attention - only when wanted - was beyond our expectations. The setting was so peaceful and serene that we loved it - walking through the woods, sitting by the lake, or just sitting on the porch of our cabin reading a good book. After a summer filled with health issues for both my father and me, and his death at the age of 92, we needed some time away to unwind and relax...and just enjoy each other's company. Pilot Knob Inn B&B was just what the doctor ordered, adding a bit of nostalgia to the occasion by virtue of the fact it is located only a few miles from where my father was born and grew up. This was our first stay in a B&B, but after our experience here, we certainly wish we had come sooner. Rest assured, we WILL return, and that we will recommend it to our friends and family!

My husband and I had the most wonderful time. We've never been so relaxed. Pilot Knob Inn is the perfect place to go when you need some one on one time with your signifigant other. If you're not in love when you get there, you will be by the time you leave! Everyone there is just warm and friendly. We look forward to going back again and again.

This inn is all they say and more. It is secluded, private, quiet...a back to nature type of inn with a lovely staff that goes over and beyond to make sure your stay is perfect....what ever you need, they're there to make sure you have it.

If you're looking for the perfect place to escape to....this is it!!

I found Pilot Knob Inn while doing an online search. It looked nice & sounded great online so we booked our vacation there. I was hesitant as you never know what you are going get through online ads, but Pilot Knob Inn was exactly as they described! My husband and I were very happy! The Castle Room is awesome, very romantic. I do recommend visiting if you are in the area. We plan on returning one day!

It was a wonderful place to get away from everything. The staff is there if you want anything but, otherwise you think you are the only two people left on earth..... and thats the way we like it. We tell all our friends about it. And we go there at least once a year.
5 on September 28, 2008
My husband and I haved stayed in the cabins on several occasions. Something about this place is magical. It is a quiet, wonderful place to reconnect away from the everyday stresses of life. There is nothing better that sitting on the porch and sharing wine and conversation. Jennifer, Will, and Kathy are great people who know how to treat their guests. We are planning to go back for our anniversary in December. This time, we are booking a suite, I only hope it is as great as the cabins.

My husband & I have been visiting the Pilot Knob Inn for the past 15 years. Over the years it has only became more special to us. They are wonderful people and they show you they really care in all they do. We will go there as long as we are able and look forward to visiting again hopefully over the winter to burn a fire in our favorite cabin #2! Sam and Barbara

My husband and I stopped at the Pilot Knob Inn as a little getaway. Little did we know that we were walking into an amazing place!! The atmosphere at the Pilot Knob Inn totally takes you away from reality and is a romantic place to spend with the one you love. Every detail was taken care of and made for an unforgetttable home away from home!
5 on September 01, 2008
We stayed in the Castle Room for 2 incredible nights. When you open the door the ambiance is staring you right in the face, your body relaxes and you know for a fact you have chose the perfect spot to spend with the person you love with all your heart. Everything and I do mean Everything was perfect. The food and innkeepers were excellent. We will be back. I strongly suggest you try this Inn.

We found the best romantic retreat around we had never even been to the state of North Carolina and Pilot Knob bed and breakfast was a great pick. I am just afraid that they set the standard very high & the next place we went we weren't as pleased. We enjoyed the Yadkin Valley Honeymoon Cabin it was extremely clean and private and luxurious the whirlpool was spotless and had lots of room and my husband is 6 ft 3. We cannot wait to return.

4.8 on August 30, 2008
One week prior to our scheduled vacation at our time share, I sustained a serious injury that left me in the hospital for just under three weeks. After two months at home I finally got the okay take a VERY short vacation. My wife needed it as much if not more than I did, after all, she's the one that's done everything. We decided on the Yadkin Valley and so I started searching for a B&B. The ad for Pilot knob almost jumped out at me. My wife and I will have been married for 42 years this September and a Honeymoon Cottage just sounded right. When we checked in and went to our cabin and my wife saw "Honey Moon Cabin" next to the door... well, I made some points. Although I was only allowed two days, Jen, her husband Allen and their staff did everything possible to make a short stay a very memorable one. What a fantastic place for newlyweds and there were several there as well as a few our age... 21+. We've warned them, we will be back. Larry and Jurona Mobley Asheville, NC

we stayed in one of the suites with a whirlpool-- totally secluded and romantic! paddle-boating on the lake and swimming in the pool and walking in the forest.. this place has it all. and the breakfast was delicious!
5 on August 26, 2008
All we needed Quiet & Romantic not to mention clean and well kept grounds and rooms. The bed we slept on gave me the best nights sleep of my life the mattress was top of the line with pillow top the only drawback was it was hard to get on the bed because I am only 5 ft tall but it was fun!

The Pilot Knob Inn offers complete dedication to every single detail possible. My husband and I enjoyed everything including the scrumptious breakfast to the quiet naps in the luxurious Castle Room suite provided by the Pilot Knob Inn. Sipping coffee on the private shaded deck in the rocking chairs was a much needed getaway. Much more private than most b & b's.

My husband and I stayed in the Heavenly Hideaway suite in July and enjoyed the best vacation we've ever had as a couple. The room was wonderful and the hostess gave us many great recommendations for local attractions. (We loved hiking at the state parks and eating at the wineries.) I can't say enough about what a great time we had. I'm sure we'll return.
4.8 on August 21, 2008
This was the most wonderful place we had ever been. We went for our honeymoon and had breakfast made to order in bed every morning. We stayed in the suite with the glass wall and it was beautiful.
5 on August 19, 2008
Heavenly Hideaway suite was so much more adequate of a room than we could have anticipated with full jacuzzi shower with extremely luxurious sheets and bedding! We found this room on a Hot Deal from bedandbreakfast.com for 99.00 we really could not have been any more pleased with what we experienced at the Pilot Knob Inn.

It doesn't get any better than this peaceful and romantic in every way. This place should be #1 in the North Carolina hands down. Cannot wait to return have already rebooked for the fall. Sally and Chris from Clinton, NC

The Pilot Knob Inn is Magical in everyway. The rustic and comforting accomodations are extremely welcoming and charming. The innkeepers and staff are very warm and friendly they make you feel like you are a part of the family. Our stay was the wonderful and we will be back.

If you are in need of a great geataway look no further Pilot Knob Inn has all things taken care of. This is a unique romantic getaway my wife and I stayed in cabin #2 it is extremely private and quiet and the bed was exceptional. I have never had a better nights sleep away from home. We will be back this winter they have firewood ready for you in the winter and we cannot wait.

My husband and I stayed in the Penthouse Suite for our 22nd anniversary and absolutely loved it. We were celebrating with another couple who were staying in the Honeymoon Suite and we had plenty of room for them to come over and spend time playing cards or relaxing in the jacuzzi. We have stayed in many B&Bs in NC, but this one is now our favorite. I think we'll stay in one of the Tobacco barns next time. We had a great time! Thanks!
5 on August 09, 2008
We wanted a private, yet friendly place to getaway for a few days. We couldn't have been happier. We loved our cabin, and although there is plenty to do in the area, we didn't want to leave the cozy cabin! We hearily recommend the Pilot Knob Inn. We loved it! The Bowlings, Durham, NC

What a wonderful experience. We loved the cabin from the minute we walked in the door. We were looking for a quiet getaway within 2 hours of home and this is the place. The cabin (Love Shack) was perfect, clean and had everything we needed. Breakfast was wonderful and filling. Kathy and Jennifer were very helpful with directions and ideas. Can't wait to go back in the winter so we can have a fire in the fireplace and spend some quality time together. Very highly recommend the Pilot Knob Inn, it will be our "go to" place from now on.
5 on August 03, 2008
This was a wonderful experience. I only wish our stay could have been longer. A way to change routine and relax. This was what we needed. The location is excellent, easy to get to and no hustle or bustle :) Everything was great from the moment we stepped into the cabin to the wonderful breakfast. Will return! Thanks for the hospitality!
5 on August 02, 2008
A recent stay at Pilot Knob Inn gave me reason to appreciate the finer things in life that don't include material items you can purchase. Will and Jennifer Allen treat you like family and make your stay at Pilot Knob comforting, relaxing, and peaceful. The cabin combined with its' secluded setting and tobacco barn history was spotlessly clean with cabin charm and modern conveniences. I would recommend Pilot Knob Inn to anyone who thinks they need a little time to watch deer, appreciate the North Carolina wilderness and Andy Griffith country, revisit family values, and make memories to last a lifetime. I hope to visit Will and Jennifer again and can't thank them enough for their kindness and hospitality. Rick from Southwest Missouri

We really enjoyed our stay, the lake with paddle boats was a nice perk with the stay. It kept us busy-relaxing. The breakfast was phenominal, never had so much of a selection offered for breakfast! The staff was also very courtious and helpful, and provided lots of information for attractions and restaurants in the area. The only downside of our cabin was that could be difficult for some to get in and out of the tub, it's a big stretch!
4.8 on July 30, 2008
After spending our wedding night here 2 years ago, we returned for the 3rd time. We come back to the Castle Room every year and greatly enjoy our stay. The location and view are perfect and the staff at Pilot Knob is great.
5 on July 28, 2008
That's the way to describe the Pilot Knob Inn & breakfast! Quiet & peaceful get-away for the busy stressed couple. Time to relax and enjoy the things God has made that we don't always stop and look at! Best vacation in a long time!

We stayed at the Pilot Knob Inn on 06/19/2008. This is our second stay there. We love that it is less than 2 hours from our home in Charlotte, but you feel like you are a million miles away. The grounds and cabins are well kept, very clean with special touches everywhere. This is not a country club type atmosphere if that's what you are into. The owners and Cathy treat you like you are old friends....they really make you feel right at home. The only negative is that the pool is no longer open due to some inspection issues and they will not be able to re-open it.
5 on July 25, 2008
My husband and I celebrated our 25th Anniversary here. We have been several times before and we think it is the best getaway anywhere. You feel as if you are in another world that is just so laid back and you have no worries at all. The inn keepers make everything perfect and it just gives you time to relax and enjoy your time together. We recommend Pilot Knob as the world's best getaway.
4.2 on July 24, 2008
We chose to stay at the inn for a couple of nights during a business trip where we would be going back and forth from Winston-Salem and Greensboro. It was a terrific thrill to come back to our cabin each afternoon. The accomodations are adorable and take you back in time (with luxuries from today) ! We watched the deer gathering each morning and dusk. What a thrill! The ladies take superb care of your needs and do it with spring in their steps. We will definitely make a return trip when we can fully enjoy all the inn has to offer. Don't hesitate to book your room or cabin ! You won't be disappointed !
4.8 on July 22, 2008
Nice cabins, secluded enough to feel private and remote, and close enough to vineyards/Old Salem/attractions to be convenient. We'll be back.
5 on July 21, 2008
We celebrated our 18th anniversary here and wondered why we didn't do it earlier. I work with 2 other people who have been here and we have talked another person into going. So far we have 3 5 star ratings where I work. Loved it and would definatly reccomend.
5 on July 21, 2008
What a great time we had! Beautiful views, close proximity to Mt Airy (and the Mayberry memorabilia) and Pilot Knob State Park, wineries and orchards. We enjoyed our privacy and our breakfasts were wonderful. We intend to return annually.
4.6 on July 21, 2008
We stayed in the glass walled room and would highly recommend it - are planning to come back! The private outdoor hot tub is incredible, and the suite itself is incredibly romantic. The grounds are neat and well cared for, with plenty of quiet places to stroll. Highly recommend this inn.
5 on July 20, 2008
The Pilot Knob Inn has the market on the Southern Hospitality they are just the way you would picture going to Mayberry. This was the funnest experience we have ever had everything exceeded our expectations and we cannot thank Jennifer & Will enough for a fantastic place to esacpe. We cannot wait to come back for more!
5 on July 20, 2008
My girlfriend and I were extremely pleased with our stay at the Pilot Knob Inn. The rooms were very clean and quiet. They are in the Yadkin Valley Wine region with lots of things to do. We will return next summer if not this winter.
5 on July 17, 2008
Loved the get away! Beautiful place. Good breakfast! Just did not have enough time to be there! Enjoyed the hot tub the most!
5 on July 17, 2008
Cabin #1 was the best choice for us we picked it because it said "Best View" I believe It was the best for every reason possible. The cabin was better than we anticipated. Adorable from the inside out and the Perfect Host!
3.8 on July 16, 2008
This was our second visit and already looking forward for a third. We stayed in cabin 4 and enjoyed sitting on the front porch watching the deer. Loved the king size bed upstairs and the small deck. Breakfast was great and very filling! Very peaceful and a great way to relax.

My fiance' and I recently stayed at the Love Shack at the Pilot Knob Inn. It was an absolutely adorable cabin! It has a huge jacuzzi tub for 2 (that I might add we enjoyed tremendously)! There are several different sites to see around the location, however, the grounds are gorgeous. The breakfast they serve included in your stay was delicious! The owner & the woman that cooked breakfast were so friendly! They made you feel so at home! We can't wait to return! I would HIGHLY recommend this b&b to anyone for a very romantic weekend! Debbie Whittington & Jason Todd!
5 on July 15, 2008
We were very pleased with our accomodations the cabin to me was extremely reasonable and we received a great breakfast too! I personally enjoyed soaking in the jacuzzi and watching the deers.

We were recently married (July 5th, 2008) in a small 200 year old Chapel in Tanglewood Park, NC and wanted to continue our vintage trend by visiting Pilot Knob Inn and spending our Honeymoon night in a beautiful rustic Log Cabin. We found Pilot Knob Inn on the internet, and although I've lived in NC most of my life I had never heard of them. The first word that comes to my mind to describe our one night visit there is "INCREDIBLE"! My new bride just moved to NC from S. FLA and she was absolutely in Heaven! The cozy charm and the rustic beauty coupled with every modern day amenity possible made our "Love Shack" (the actual name of our cabin) a truly unforgettable experience. It all started with about a 1-mile drive down a narrow dirt/gravel road into the wooded forest surrounding Pilot Mountain State Park. Although our arrival was after dark, one of the owners met us at the office with a key and a smile. Upon arriving at our Cabin we immediately got into the oversized Hot Tub in the bathroom area and sipped some chilled Sparkling Cider I had pre-ordered. Although they had Satellite TV, I don't think we ever cut the TV on! The next morning we got up and walked a few short yards to one of the best Hot Breakfast's we had ever eaten. We spent the rest of our time there exploring the trails and the lake where they had canoe's and paddle boats. Although we only had a one night stay there, it was definitely enough to convince us to come back for AT LEAST a long weekend or maybe more. We've both travelled all over North America, but this was beyond a doubt the most relaxing and tranquil place we have ever experienced. Absolutely a MUST SEE and MUST STAY for anyone looking to leave the World's troubles behind and escape to a solitude and comfort that only Pilot Knob Inn can provide. (Did I mention how comfortable the bed was??!!!) Mike & Janie Greensboro, NC
5 on July 14, 2008
This was the best two night getaway my husband & I have had in forever! My best friend told me about the Pilot Knob Inn and it was just the place we were looking for Charming cabins with log beds and whirlpools it was like out of a storybook. The lady Jennifer was so sweet very quick to respond to my emails and very attentive when we got there! We will tell our friends and family.

Quaint and cozy. Secluded and beautiful location.

The Pilot Knob Inn in Pilot Mountain North Carolina is the place to go for a relaxing time. This is where my wife & I go to unwind and get back to remember why we got married in the first place. The Pilot Knob Inn is a special place to us and we always look forward to our whirlpool for two!
4.6 on July 12, 2008
"P-i-l-o-t-K-n-o-b-I-n-n". The inn is even better than the website states and the staff is very welcoming. The locale feels like you're very far away from real life; yet, nature and popular attractions are a skip & a hop away. We were delighted with our cabin and are already planning when we can go back. Will definitely share this special place with friends and family!
5 on July 12, 2008
We loved the atmosphere, the owners (Jennifer),Kathy in the kitchen, were great! The setting is incredibly private, beautiful.
5 on July 11, 2008
Mayberry Getaway could not have been complete without a visit to the Pilot Knob Inn! This place made the trip worth it all. We stayed in the Yadkin Valley Honeymoon Cabin it was the best night sleep I have Ever had. We awoke to the smell of bacon there is no need to ever go anywhere else this is the place for Patsy & I.
5 on July 10, 2008
We spent our Honeymoon here Twenty Years Ago and this place is still in business and actually better than ever before. We stayed in cabin #1 for our Honeymoon and came back and stayed again. Much improvements over twenty years and the price could not have been a better deal! Their breakfast is outstanding and we loved cabin #1. They have added a lake and boating! The hosts were very attentive to our every need.
5 on July 09, 2008
Everything met & exceeded our expectations. Extremely helpful staff and neat concept. Keep up the great work!
5 on July 08, 2008
The Castle Room a perfect choice for my wife's birthday. The room is amazing with a huge whirlpool and a sauna. We sat on the deck in the rocking chairs and enjoyed the nature that surrounded us. The breakfast was prepared to order and very filling. We loved our suite and recommend Pilot Knob Inn highly. The Thompson's
5 on July 07, 2008
I can see why the Pilot Knob Inn has been in business for over 20 years. They are the best bed and breakfast in this state and I have been to atleast twenty in North Carolina. We visited several in Mount Airy and want to say without a doubt this bed and breakfast is the cleanest and most well kept in the area. We also want to thank the innkeepers for going out of their way to make us feel welcome. Loved our room and breakfast was great.
5 on July 04, 2008
Breathtaking views, rooms and service above all expectations.
5 on July 04, 2008
We saw this place online read the reviews and thought lets try it! We are very excited to write a review and let everybody know that we have found our new getaway. They have it all great rooms, the best southern down home hospitality and breakfast you could ask for. The rooms were very clean. We stayed in Cabin #1 and Loved it we will return to cabin #1 in the Fall.
5 on July 02, 2008
Our visit was an anniversary surprise from my wife. What a wonderful trip. We will return.
5 on July 02, 2008
My husband and I enjoyed a great time at the Pilot Knob Inn. The suite we were in was the Penthouse Suite it was so georgious. Hottub, jacuzzi, Mountain View and Cold AC! The breakfast was amazing we didn't even go out for lunch! The town of Mount Airy is very nice and the local wineries were excellent. The suite we were in could not have been any nicer and very clean!
4.0 on July 01, 2008
I can say without a doubt this was one of the BEST trips we've taken in quite a while. The folks at Pilot Knob Inn go way beyond any other B&B we've ever stayed at for service and accommodations. We WILL return again and many of our friends who we've told about our trip are planning on using this B&B for their stay. This was a surprise Anniversary trip for my husband, I must say he was impressed!
5 on June 30, 2008
Fantastic on every note! Loved the seclusion the atmosphere and the people. The breakfast was plenty and in spacious room with seperate tables. Beautiful views and Mountain hiking trails. Innkeepers were extremely informative and made fantastic suggestions on places to eat and wine tours. Marty & Gracie
4.8 on June 30, 2008
I cannot tell you enough what a wonderful getaway this place provided for us. We stayed in cabin #2 it was so much nicer than we anticipated. The cabin was exceptionally clean it was spotless. I am a critic because I clean houses for a living. Huge lake with boating and fishing available for no extra cost. The breakfast was absolutely amazing and the staff was great. Loved the jacuzzi and the bath salts provided. Also I fell in love with the quilts they were beautiful.
5 on June 29, 2008
The Pilot Knob Inn exceeded our expectations in every way. It was extremely quiet, private and very clean. The property has a lot to offer!
4.8 on June 28, 2008
My husband and I have visit this B&B twice now. The first time we stayed in the suite named heavenly Hideaway it was beautiful and cozy although you could hear some noise from the breakfast room but not too much. The breakfast was great and you even had options as to waffles or toast. The hospitality was great as well. We loved arriving to find directions to our room posted to the door. It made us feel like we were on an adventure. We felt very welcomed both times. The second time we stayed in cabin 1. It was very rustic but cozy as well. The bedroom was upstairs with the bathroom and small sitting room downstairs. At night, we saw deer running around on the property. As said before we had a great time! We hope to return again very soon.
3.6 on June 27, 2008
Loved this bed and breakfast and I will come back for sure. It was quaint, quiet, and had wonderful amenitites, like the whirlpool jacuzzis and outdoor activities to make you feel like you were truly getting away. Only criticism was that I do not think the whirlpool's jets were super clean as they left red, rusty-like marks at the waterline. Did not get to eat breakfast, so I cannot comment on that. Was one of the best bed and breakfasts I have ever stayed at.
The red rusty marks you are referring to is caused by Iron in well water which comes and goes, but sometimes is worse when we are in drought like conditions like we are now. It does seem to be most noticable when the jets circulate with the bubble action. I appreciate your kind comments about our inn and hope you will come back & visit soon & be sure to make it to breakfast next time!
5 on June 26, 2008
My wife & I have stayed at Pilot Knob Inn many times and it only gets better. The rooms, service and grounds are top notch. They are very reasonable and every time we go back we notice improvements which says a lot to us. This to us is the most romantic getaway in the south.
5 on June 22, 2008
The Pilot Knob Inn Bed & Breakfast has preserved and perfected a piece of history that nobody should ever miss a chance to visit! Will & Jennifer were super friendly went above and beyond to guarantee our stay was perfect. There is nothing I could possibly complain about. Our place was extremely clean and the breakfast was above what we expected with generous portions. Lake was very peaceful and quiet I loved the fact that they do not allow children. The perfect Adult Romantic Getaway! We cannot wait to return!

5 on June 13, 2008
We had a three night escape at the Pilot Knob Inn and it was perfect in every way. The owners & their staff did everything to guarantee my husband & I had the vacation we were needing. The suite we stayed in is called the Southwestern Honeymoon Suite and it was so much nicer in person than we had anticipated. Thank you so much!
5 on June 11, 2008
The cabin and the service was exceptional. Not one complaint. I will be back

This was such a beautiful place to spend our 28th Wedding Anniversary. Everything was so quite and peaceful. The room was absolutely awesome. We loved setting in the front porch rockers in the evening and on the balcony late at night. It was a dream get-a-way for anyone needing some R&R. The breakfast was wonderful each morning and the staff was great. We will definitely be telling all of our family and friends about our wonderful say at Pilot Knob Inn.
4.6 on June 07, 2008
We went to Pilot Knob for our anniversary. The room was wonderful. I was very glad that they provided extra towels in the room, you usually have to ask for extras. The only thing that would make this place better is a little landscaping work, but in all fairness, it is located in the woods. They have a wonderful view of Pilot Mountain in the breakfast room and from the patio. Thank you for a great stay.
5 on June 06, 2008
When you need to get away from the busy-ness or ordinary-ness of every day work and pressures and you want to reset your focus, energy, and priorities, you will find the natural beauty and quiet and comfort of Pilot Knob Inn a refuge and resting place. The views are breathtaking; the air is invigorating. It is the place to reconnect with your beloved in a secluded and beautiful area with comfort and luxury to help you relax and enjoy each other. With plenty of privacy and also area attractions minutes away to choose from, you will wish you could stay longer and will plan to return again. Breakfast is generous, delicious and cheerfully served to your order. Thoughtfulness and care is given to every detail in order to make your stay comfortable and carefree. You will drive away renewed! Our second stay was even better than our first; we loved the cozy tobacco barn cabin. We made the most of every minute at Pilot Knob Inn Bed and Breakfast!
5 on June 05, 2008
We have stayed at Pilot Knob Inn several times and have truly enjoyed each visit. Each of the cabins we have had the pleasure of staying in have been charming and each had its own unique qualities. Jennifer, her staff and pets are always so warm, friendly and makes you feel right at home. Our breakfast meals are always delicious! We love it at Pilot Knob Inn and would greatly recommend it to anyone of any age. We are looking forward to returning very soon!
5 on June 04, 2008
My husband & I planned a weekend getaway to the famous town of "Mayberry" off the Andy Griffith show we didn't want to stay in town at a Traditional Bed & Breakfast so we found the Pilot Knob Inn with cabin rentals that is also a bed and breakfast. The cabin was better than anticipated very welcoming, cozy and clean. The breakfast was out of this world! Jennifer and Will do a dandy job and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. We will tell our friends and we are coming back in the fall!
5 on June 04, 2008
My fiancee' and I spent our 3rd anniversary at Pilot Knob Inn and it was absolutely incredible. We stayed in the Penthouse suite overlooking the pool. The hot tub and jacuzzi were amazing. It's my absolute favorite!! Don't let me forget to mention the beautiful lake. We got in the paddleboats and floated around for hours. We are making this an ongoing getaway! It was a perfect dream from beginning to end. I promise, you won't be disappointed!
5 on June 03, 2008
Pilot Knob not only is located in one of the most relaxing places on earth, but is also very clean and friendly. My husband and I will be coming back year after year!

The breakfast was out of this world! Our suite was very clean and the sheets on the bed felt like heaven the towels were extra plush.They just seemed to have that extra touch on everything and we noticed it! This was our first trip and will not be our last we cannot wait to come again!

We just celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary at Pilot Knob Inn. It was our second visit to the Pilot Knob Inn and we love it so much. Jennifer and Kathy are so accomodating, kind and make you feel at home. They serve the most amazing breakfast and always with a smile. Honestly, this was better than our honeymoon. It was so private and romantic. We intend to buy a gift certificate for our son and daughter in-law for Christmas. Don't wait, make your reservations NOW!!!! The Whitt's

My husband & I have been to Pilot Knob Inn 6 times we have stayed in the Tobacco Barn Cabins 4 times the Southwest Honeymoon Suite and the Heavenly Hideaway we love all of them. There are things about each place we love! They are always clean and the owners take a great pride in their place. They give your privacy and let you know they are available if needed and always so friendly and glad to see you have returned. We have a special place in our heart for Pilot Knob Inn we spend our Honeymoon Night there 5 years ago and go everytime we can sneak away. We look forward to the waffles and service with a smile!

This was the first time my husband and I have gotten away since our daughter was born (2 years). The cabin was absolutley wonderful. It brings you back to a quieter simplier way of life. Thanks so much. Pilot Knob is a wonderful place to stay.
5 on May 29, 2008
Just returned from a perfectly romantic getaway. The Pilot Knob Inn came highly recommended from some friends at work that had been going for years. We stayed in the Penthouse Suite which was extremely well appointed with Hottub & whirlpool, gas logs and satelitte tv and an eye shot Mountain View! Breakfast was delicious with plenty they even asked us if we wanted seconds (that is hard to find!) Plenty of fruit and assorted cakes! The lake was incredible for fishing as well! We cannot express how impressed we were with Pilot Knob! They have truly thought of every detail!
4.8 on May 29, 2008
although our stay was quite short lived because I was taken ill and had to cut short our trip- the short stay we had was wonderful. The food was excellent and plenty of it. The staff most accomodating and friendly. We stayed in one of the tobacco barns. It was charming and most romantic. Would recommend a stay to anyone who wanted to get to know each other
5 on May 28, 2008
I found the inn while searching for information on the tobacco barns in North Carolina, as we were planning a trip to photograph them. I figured what would be better than staying in a converted barn while hunting the countryside for some to photograph. Glad I did!! Absolutely beautiful! Kudos to the forward thinking folks that saved these awesome pieces of NC history...Just walking into one of the cabins, yoou could almost smell the curing tobacco. Can't wait to come back!!
4.8 on May 28, 2008
We have been going to Pilot Knob Bed and Breakfast every year since we were married in 2003. The cabins are so peaceful. The breakfast is outstanding. They anticipate everything you might need, from logs for the fire to extra big fluffy towels for the large tub. There is a state park less than a mile away for romantic hikes and picnics and a pond for fishing, including row boats. I have stayed in many places in 46 states of our fine country. This place is exceptional in every way if you are looking for a rustic getaway.
3.6 on May 28, 2008
cabin great,hostess's great could use some warm fuzzy robes and side items at breakfast should be heated.

We chose Pilot Knob Inn B&B for our 40th Anniverary celebration. We were looking for a quiet, peaceful and private place and Pilot Knob Inn exceeded our expectations. The staff was great and we throughly enjoyed the tobacco barn cabin. We would recommentd this get-away to anyone. The area offers lots to do and the staff is most helpful with directions and suggestions. This is a great place to relax and explore a fun area. We plan to return.

After spending a long weekend at Pilot Knob Inn, I have finally found the ultimate romantic getaway. This is truly one of our states hidden treasures with a historic touch mixed with modern convience. The rooms were great and the breakfast was outstanding. Anytime they were needed, the staff was more than accomadating. We have stayed in several Inns across NC, but this was by far our best adventure yet. The people at Pilot Knob Inn know that it is nice to be important, but more important to be nice. Thanks again for a Great Weekend.

This is a first time for me to write a review on a place, but our stay made such a lasting impression. The attention to detail was superb from everything in the room, the breakfast & property. The menu was perfect to accomodate our vegetarian needs plenty of fruit and other options. Jennifer had a genuine concern for our stay to be perfect and it was. We were in need of a Romantic Getaway and this place was the perfect choice!

This was my wife and I's second visit to this great place. The tobacco barn is the best (we stayed in the penthouse suite the first time fro our honeymoon). It's a great atmosphere and takes you back to a much more simple time. These cabins are extremely cozy. The breakfast is awesome-it was on our minds for the entire year until we made it back.

This is just what we needed to unwind from our stressful lifes. We were very pleased with our room and the activities included in the rate. The breakfast was the best!

This was a perfect choice for our 15th Anniversary we chose Cabin #1 because of it's Mountain View. It was a great idea and we are only sad that we didn't find it sooner. We have three children and had not been away since our first one was born 12 years ago. We have decided to make it a yearly thing to come back to Pilot Knob as we read in the journals that was the thing to do. We loved it all maybe because we hadn't been away in so long or maybe because they are just that good! To us it is a special place and a two night getaway for us felt like a week. We were able to completely unwind.

You must experience this for yourself to appreciate the way they have ideally preserved these 100 year old Tobacco Barn Cabins to make you feel as if you have stepped back in time. They are tastefully decorated and in a haven for wildlife. These cabins are tastefully decorated and even have whirlpools for two and real wood burning fireplaces. My wife and I sat on the balcony of our bedroom loft just getting back to the way life is suppose to be. We really needed our one night getaway and will be coming back. The breakfast was more than enough and served with style. Jennifer was very informative about the area and places to eat. To be so far away it is actually extremely convenient to the highway and lots of unique wineries. They even have rowboats on a lake you can fish too! I rate this place an A+! Ben and Sherri Thompson

Our first time staying in a Bed and breakfast and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The inn was beautiful, the room was fantastic. You couldn't have asked for a host to treat you any better. We will be returning in the future.
5 on May 20, 2008
We had heard about Pilot Knob from friends that had stayed years ago did a google search and found them and we are so glad that we did. The weeked was exactly what we needed to get away the host was very attentive and we got just exactly what we were looking for. We are wanting to return in the Fall to watch the leaves!

Regain Your Sanity this is our place Pilot Knob Inn. To finally take the time to rock in a rocking chair and watch the wildlife as you just sit a spell and sip coffee on your porch. We have visited several times over the years and have just returned from our Pilot Mountain Getaway and cherrish it more every single visit. Very convenient to Greensboro and Winston Salem you feel hundreds of miles away, but only a short drive up the road. The local wineries are a wonderful added attraction!
5 on May 18, 2008
We, like many others, have stayed in lots of B&B's as well as cabins all over the country. However, we have returned to the Pilot Knob Inn several times and hope to be able to do so many more. Here's why: woodburning fireplaces, choice of cabins or more traditional B&B rooms, and an amazingly wonderful and personable staff who manage to be extremely attentive and yet not overbearing. They are always there for you when you want or need them, but they truly understand your need for privacy and value it incredibly. The cabins are so cozy and historical and yet have all the modern conveniences. My husband loves to fish and I love to read and we have spent several wonderful afternoons doing both on the beautiful and peaceful lake. And, free boats!! The Pilot Knob Inn is where I go mentally when I need to drop my blood pressure several points. When we are lucky enough to go there in person we do not only that...but refresh, relax, and rejuvinate our relationship. Awesome, simply awesome! We are so glad we found this place...but now that the word is getting out...it's getting hard to get a room there! So, don't hesitate to book yours RIGHT NOW!! The only thing you'll regret is having to leave!!!

A Rare find this place in a convenient location with rustic tobacco barn cabins that are modern and decorated perfectly. They have thought of everything! Innkeepers went above and beyond to take care of our every need. We will return to Pilot Knob Inn.
5 on May 15, 2008
I brought my husband here for our second anniversary and found it to be one of the most Unique and Romantic places I have ever been. Just outside of Winston-Salem, North Carolina it only took us less than half an hour to find this wonderfully hidden treasure. It was all we could have hoped for and more. Will & Jennifer went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The breakfast was outstanding we didn't eat again till dinner. We stayed in the Heavenly Hideaway and it was Heavenly, Jennifer recommend it because it was on special we feel like we have found a wonderful place to go and met special friends in the owners.
5 on May 15, 2008
The Pilot Knob Inn was absolutely the perfect place for a romantic getaway. The Castle Room has this unbelievable private deck that enters to your private Haven it has a King bed overlooking fireplace and dimming lights that surround this incredible room along with the largest jacuzzi and sauna I have ever seen. The entire property is "Kid Free" which is a real attraction for the adults needing some time alone we just live in Greensboro and will be returning to Pilot Knob a lot.
5 on May 14, 2008
This was a perfect getaway! So close to Winston-Salem yet in a beautiful mountain setting. The Penthouse Suite was awesome! Very spacious and well-appointed. Large hot tub in front of the fireplace, jacuzzi tub in bathroom, separate comfy bedroom and really nice people! We'll definitely be back. Thank you!
5 on May 14, 2008
We wanted a couple weekend, my husband and I. We went to Pilot Mountain and asked about places to stay. We were told about Pilot Know Inn Bed and Breakfast. Luckly someone cancelled and we had a room. The staff was great, the room was wonderful. I would recommend the place to anyone. It so peaceful and quiet. If you need to just getaway and relax this is the perfect place. We stayed one night and already have made plans to go back again. We loved it!!
5 on May 13, 2008
Tasteful Decor not too frilly and fussy and most of all comfortable beyond words. The hostess, Jennifer met us with a beaming smile and great energy which must be needed to run this fine b & b. My wife & I stayed in the Pilot Knob suite with private balcony, and Private hottub. We were excited to find a bed and breakfast that had not forgotten the need for a good "Country Breakfast" this inn met all our needs and well surpassed our expectations. Cannot wait to revisit when we come thru this region again. Thank You Ever So Much!

Pilot Knob Inn is Heaven On Earth they are a wonderful inn with a lake and fishing and these absolutely perfect cabins that are made from Tobacco Barn Cabins you cannot help but to fall in love with the place and the people. The cabin was spotless and the breakfast was amazing. I sat and read the guest book for an hour and a lot of the people had been several times I can see we will as well return to the Tobacco Barn Cabins.
4.4 on May 12, 2008
The breakfast is wonderful - cooked to order. The innkeepers and maid are very friendly and helpful. The cabins are so cute and cozy. I love the seclusion of the property and closeness in proximity to Pilot Knob State Park. This has become the favorite getaway spot for my husband and I.
5 on May 11, 2008
The Pilot Knob Inn was an excellent choice to spend an anniversary weekend they are very attention to detail and very pampering. We stayed in a Tobacco Barn Cabin and was very impressed. My husband caught five bass and we went to one of the local wineries for dinner. I cannot wait to return to feel pampered again.
5 on May 08, 2008
We had the best weekend in a Tobacco Barn Cabin and cannot thank Will & Jennifer enough for their hospitality and providing such a wonderful place! Everything about the Pilot Knob Inn shows the pride they take in this place. We were very impressed with how clean and well maintained everything was. We will be back hopefully sooner than later.

My husband and I have stayed at the Pilot Knob Inn Bed & Breakfast many times, and we absolutely love it!!! It is the best romantic getaway we have ever been on. Our favorite is the Yadkin Valley Honeymoon Cabin. The king size bed is so comfortable, and the huge jacuzzi tub is so relaxing! We have also stayed in the Penthouse Suite and the Castle Room which are also fabulous!!! Another great thing about the Pilot Knob Inn is the wonderful breakfast! They have eggs, waffles, toast, sausage, bacon, coffee, orange juice, etc. Every time we have stayed there, the breakfast has always been wonderful and delicious! Lastly, one other great thing about the Pilot Knob Inn is the wonderful innkeepers, Will and Jennifer Allen, who go out of the way to make sure that your stay is absolutely perfect. Also, Jennifer's sister, Kathy, does most of the cooking and cleaning, and she does an outstanding job! We will definitely be coming back to Pilot Knob Inn for many more years to come! You could not ask for a better place to stay!
4.6 on May 08, 2008
We made a last minute decision to get out of town for a couple of days. Found Pilot Knob Inn on a google search and the rest is history. We stayed in the Southwest Suite and it will be the one we request the next time we go back. The staff was more than warm and welcoming and we felt like they would do just about anything to guarantee our stay was perfect. Best compliment I think we can give is we did NOT want to leave.
5 on May 07, 2008
Cannot say Thank You enough to Jennifer & Will and the staff at Pilot Knob Inn for making every detail perfect about our stay. Our Suite was exactly what we needed for a quick one night getaway to save our sanity. We will be back for mini recharges soon! Thanks so Much for providing such a wonderful place.
5 on May 07, 2008
These Cabins are amazing they have thought of every single detail to make your stay that of a 5 star place. My wife and I travel frequently and this place is so much nicer in person that what we had expected. They were like your oldest best friends. You can go with confidence that the owners love what they do and take incredible attention to detail of every single part of this inn. It was the best place we could have chose for an anniversary get away.
4.2 on May 06, 2008
We treated our son and daughter-in -law to a weekend get away with us. They have stayed there before and loved it! Our son was just accepted into the PhD program at UNCG and we spent the weekend at Pilot Mt in celebration for life:) It was a wonderful experience! Loved the cabins!!!!!
5 on May 05, 2008
We slipped off for a weekend away from stressful jobs, kids and life in general. This place was Exactly as described on the website, but only better. Close to the Wineries and Andy Griffith's Home Town. The only problem we didn't want to leave to do anything we ordered the cheese and crackers and even skipped eating out the first night. This place is just what we needed.
4.4 on May 05, 2008
This is the ideal place to forget all of your troubles. It isn't far from the highway but miles away from the hustle and bustle of the world. This is a relaxing resort for the perfect getaway from the quiet cabin with a hot tub to the breathe taking view. Everything you need to de-stress and reenergize.
5 on May 05, 2008
As always we had a wonderful time at Pilot Knob Inn. Clean and romantic!
5 on May 04, 2008
I took my husband for a suprise trip to the mountains and we booked with the Pilot Knob Inn it was great! It was better in every way possible than what we imagined. The cabin was so clean and cozy and PRIVATE! They aren't stacked on top of eachother you are totally to yourself and would never know anybody else is around. Great breakfast and Great Cabin!
5 on May 03, 2008
We checked into Pilot Knob with great expectations which they far surpassed in every way. The accomodations and the food were Excellent in every way. Jennifer took time to get us aquainted with the area, and took a personal interest in our enjoyment of our time together which made it all the more special. We enjoyed the Southwest Honeymoon Suite and cannot wait to go back they have lots of wonderful suites and cabins but I think that is our favorite! Malarie
4.8 on May 02, 2008
If you are in need of a getaway you have to got to visit the Pilot Knob Inn. Their cabins are absolutely the cleanest and coziest I have ever visited and it is over 100 years old. I have visited Pilot Knob four different times over the past 15 years every time it gets better!
5 on May 02, 2008
The Castle Room tops all suites we have ever stayed in. Imported wooden walls from a true Castle and Italian Marble Fireplace with Antique King Bed luxury linen truly did feel like a King in this getaway lay in bed and watch the 50" Big Screen Tv, Sauna, Extra large whirlpool, Private deck too!
5 on April 23, 2008
This is a simply lovely place the innkeepers were so sweet and the accomodations were very nice. Breakfast was a feast. Cabin #2 will be our new place!

My husband and I were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. We were high school sweethearts and married when we were 20. Now at age 50, with the family raised we were ready for some "our" time. What a great place. We stayed in cabin 4 and were very pleased. The fireplace and tub for 2 along with the great king size bed was wonderful. We will return often for a repeat. I highly recommend this quiet beautiful place to help you remember the person you married.
5 on April 12, 2008
We were most impressed with the Pilot Knob Inn where do you go and get a cabin for only $99 and get a full hot breakfast with bacon, eggs, waffles and more! The breakfast was great we stayed on a midweek night and could not believe the price when we saw it advertised and we didn't even realize we got breakfast and got to use the lake & boats for no additional cost. Of course this isn't their usual price but it is only $129 if you go on the weekend it is more, but for anybody that can go during the week they run some incredible specials and the staff was very accomodating. We will be back no matter what the price it was worth $249
5 on April 09, 2008
We have found our new spot at the Pilot Knob Inn living just in Winston Salem we are not far, but with 2 children we have found our new getaway. We fell in love with cabin #4 with the king bed and jacuzzi tub and the fireplace. The people are so friendly and accomodating. We cannot wait to return.
5 on April 07, 2008
Our reason for going to the Pilot Knob Inn was to have a stress free weekend without kids. It ended up being so much more relaxing and peaceful than we could have asked for. The breakfast was wonderful homemade waffles, eggs, bacon, sausage, country ham, canadian bacon, fresh squeezed OJ, fruit, danishes.....need I say more!! The rooms were very clean and all of the sheets and blankets smelled so good and clean. The owner Jennifer is just as sweet as she can be and the lady who helps her is a hoot!! This will not be our last stay here we loved it!!!
5 on April 06, 2008
We have just returned from our weekend getaway at the Pilot Knob Inn we have nothing but wonderful things to say about this perfectly romantic getaway the owners Will & Jennifer were amazing and they run a great place. Breakfast was so much food and Good we really planned on sleeping but read about their breakfast and we slipped in at the end of breakfast and are so glad we didn't miss it. It was a rainy weekend so we stayed in by the fire and relaxed and read and took a jacuzzi we loved it and cannot wait to return soon! Thanks so much for the GREAT time this weekend in our Tobacco Barn Cabin!
5 on April 01, 2008
We fell in love with the Peaceful getaway located at the base of Pilot Mountain it is only 20 minutes from Winston Salem & a quick getaway from Wake Forest University where we attend. We needed a relaxing getaway from school and decided to go somewhere close. They had wireless internet so we could turn in some work & then the rest of the time we relaxed, went on the lake & even went fishing. Will & Jennifer were so sweet from making the reservations to making sure that everything was perfect for our stay. The cabin was so clean I could not get over it I mean it is a 100 year old Cabin how could they keep it so nice. They had the porch loaded with wood and we had a fire the whole time! We sat out on the balcony of cabin #3 & enjoyed the birds and nature. We will be back and cannot say enough great things about this wonderful getaway. Andrea and Jay
5 on March 31, 2008
This Inn has really went above our expectations and we were very pleased with everything. We visited over Easter weekend and they were very busy and never once did we feel like we were neglected in any way they went out of their way to make us feel welcome, make sure we had everything we needed, served us breakfast each day with a smile and warm conversation. Our room had to be the absolute cleanest I have ever stayed in. The Pilot Knob Inn I recommend to anybody coming close to North Carolina or the Blue Ridge Parkway you have to visit. They will leave a lasting impression on you they have on me. Cannot wait to visit you again! Lorna & James Minnike
5 on March 25, 2008
We stayed at the Pilot Knob Inn 3/21 - 22/08 AMAZING! It was the most perfect, relaxing, romantic getaway ever! Innkeepers Jennifer and Will went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and welcome. We can't wait until we can go back to our perfect hideaway ... the Castle Room!
5 on March 03, 2008
We wanted to take a minute to thank the Pilot Knob Inn for the wonderful accomodations! The cabin was exceptionally clean and well maintained. We loved the jacuzzi tub and the fireplace. We cannot wait to go back in the spring to use the lake and go fishing!
4.6 on March 03, 2008
This place is awesome for a quiet romantic get away from everyday life, work, kids or whatever it is you need to get away from. We will be returning!

5 on January 28, 2008
Oh My goodness I don't even know where to begin but when I opened the door to the Castle Room I was impressed to say the least. This room was better than anticipated we laid in the bed and on the victorian couch and watched the fire. Enjoyed the Sauna and the enormous whirlpool. Breakfast was so good and the breakfast room staff was so accomodating it was just impressive! We already tried to reserve this room for Next New Years Eve it's booked imagine that. Jennifer said the couples book a year or two in advance I can see why, but we will be getting our name in the hat for the Pilot Knob Suite we got to tour that one it was outstanding with outside private hottub! See you soon! Nancy and Marty
5 on January 24, 2008
My new husband & I just returned from a stay at Pilot Knob Inn we chose the Pilot Knob suite with the private hottub it was the most romantic honeymoon room we could have gotten anywhere and so much cheaper! The owners & staff were so sweet and wanted to make sure everything was great and made sure our every need was taken care of. We loved everything about this room and cannot find anything we would change. We cannot wait to go back this room was wonderful to say the least!
4.6 on January 20, 2008
My husband and I love to go to this bed and breakfast to unwind and reconnect. This is a wonderful quiet place to stay.
5 on January 20, 2008
Our Weekend Getaway in the Love Shack was absolutely incredible to say the least! The cabin was much nicer than we anticipated and we were able to relax and enjoy every minute of our stay. The owners and the staff were very sweet we loved it the room was very clean and all the towels were really thick and cozy! We really loved our cabin we will return! Thanks for the great weekend and wonderful breakfast too!
5 on January 17, 2008
My husband and I have stayed in the cabins for over 16yrs now. We go to celebrate our anniversary each yr (which is in Nov.) but we wait until after Christmas when we really need a break to go and unwind for a few days. I have stayed at other cabins in NC and Tenn. but these are the best by far!(#4 and #5 are our favorites) It is the most romantic place I have ever been. We love the loft bedroom with the big cozy bed and the whirlpool tub and the woodburning fireplace, which you can see from the tub. It is the perfect place to unwind and reconnect. Jennifer and Kathy are wonderful. We always have great food for breakfast and they see to our every need. It feels like they are family. So if you want rustic, romantic, and wonderful hospitality you cannot beat Pilot Knob Inn!
5 on January 13, 2008
We are in love with the Pilot Knob Inn it is just the greatest getaway ever! Will & Jennifer were super hosts and went above and beyond to make everthing perfect!

Great Getaway!
5 on January 09, 2008
This is the most romantic place I have ever visited. The cabin was absolutely the perfect mix of rustic/romantic/with all modern convenineces it was a perfect place to rekindle a romance overwhelmed by children/chores/the daily grind. We will cannot wait to visit cabin #3 no wonder it is the most popular cabin we loved it! Thanks for stacking the porch and leaving the light on!
5 on January 07, 2008
This bed and breakfast is just wonderful! We loved everything and had a very relaxing few days. We loved the jacuzzi and the fireplace the surroundings and the warm southern hospitality. The rooms were all so nice that we got to look at we stayed in a Tobacco barn and will try the Love Shack next time they were all well decorated and special in their own way. Cannot wait to go back.
5 on January 06, 2008
This place was a treasure we found it online on bedandbreakfast.com and stay at bed and breakfast all over while traveling. This place was over the top with service, decor, accomodating staff, wifi, excellent breakfast and the Castle Room could not have been any cleaner it truly was amazing. We stay in all types of luxury accomodations and this inn was so reasonable compared to what an some inns would have charged atleast double for what we received. This will be a new stopping spot for us atleast twice a year. We want to try all the suites! Hats off to Jennifer & Will Allen you are the best!
4.0 on January 04, 2008
Delightful innkeepers and staff make the stay enjoyable and comfortable. Delicious country breakfast served each morning. Very romantic setting near mountain with fireplace, hot tub, and loft with great bed. A great getaway for romance or just to unwind.

Scott and I have stayed twice and it has become a tradition. we love it hear, by far the best B&B we have stayed in. the staff and food are amazing! Can not wait to go back in a few weeks. we always reconnect when we are there and i wish we could make it a monthly visit instead of yearly!!
5 on January 02, 2008
We stayed at Cabin "O" for three nights and the only word which describes our stay is "Perfect". This rustic cabin with its woodburning fireplace was so cozy and romantic. The incorporation of the modern whirpool tub, etc., made our stay so enjoyable. The hospitality and warmth of the staff made us feel as if we had known them for years. The food was great and the service was excellent. We would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a romantic weekend getaway.

My fiance & I just returned from the Pilot Knob Inn we stayed in the Penthouse Suite we tried to book it on three different occassions and it was always booked now we know why! The Hottub in the living room is by a big open fireplace & it has 20 foot ceilings it is the most romantic place ever! The breakfast was great & the food was delicious we were so rested after a few days we cannot wait to return.

This place is incredible we were so pleased with everything! I recommend this to anybody needing a quick or long getaway. Will and Jennifer were so friendly & accomodating. They made sure everything we needed was taken care of. We will be back & cannot wait!
5 on December 26, 2007
This Inn has got to be the best place in the area to stay. We go to Mt Airy several times a year and had just went to the same place we decided to try something different this being just about 7 miles down the road we have found something that totally fascinated us and we will never go anywhere else in the area they could never compare to this inn. We chose a suite because that is what we are usto we chose the Castle Room it was just wonderful. The ammenities were well appointed and the room had all the extras including all kinds of books for us to read some very interesting titles. There was a Whirlpool the size for three and a Sauna we cannot wait to return. The property was beautiful! Hats off to Will and Jennifer they do a remarkable job running a Top Notch Inn!
5 on December 24, 2007
We have stayed here in December for the past 3 years we have been married. Been in the Penthouse room twice and the Pilot Knob Suite once. So far everything has been great and we cannot wait to come back next year! Well worth the money, very unique, very clean, good breakfast, quiet...what more could you want!?! Customer service is great as well. Will go the extra mile for you to make sure you have a good time!
5 on December 19, 2007
My husband & I stayed had the best experience at this inn of any place we have ever visited. The room was immaculate and with every ammenity included to make our stay just delightful. Our cabin was stacked with wood and firestarters & large box of matches to make it easy for us. The heat was on for us and the room was cozy. We enjoyed snuggling by the large fire we fixed every afternoon & kept it burning most of the evening. This cabin was just what we needed to take a break. The innkeeper let us know she was available if we needed her, but she never bothered her. At breakfast we got to mingle with the other guest as well. Everybody was pleased with their stay as they should be. Will & Jennifer also have a horse stable there on site and some of the most beautiful horses I have ever seen. I usto ride as a young girl so I loved petting them. The place well exceeded our every expectations and we will be back time and time again. We are recommending this to all of our stressed out friends for a much needed getaway! Martha and Joe

My husband and I have stayed here for the past 3 years for our anniversary. We love the cabins. Pilot Knob Inn is that little piece of heaven that makes you forget about the daily grind of everyday life. Beautifully decorated, clean, way too much food for breakfast, WONDERFUL PEOPLE. We plan to continue to go back year after year. Great place to sight see, or just take a leisurely walk around the lake. Will and Jennifer have a fantastic place. Peaceful yet within reasonable distance for other sightseeing. Michelle

IF YOU ARE TIRED AND WEARY AND NEED A BREAK TO RELAX AND ENJOY THE PEACE AND QUIET THEN LOOK NO FURTHER. MY WIFE AND I HAVE STAYED IN 5 DIFFERENT LOCATIONS AND CAN'T WAIT TO TRY THE OTHER 6 I BELIEVE. YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE FAR, FAR AWAY. VERY CLEAN AND NEAT AND MOST OF ALL VERY ENJOYABLE. HOT TUB, SAUNA, FULL BREAKFAST AND THE ROOMS ARE FILLED WITH HISTORY.

This place was a perfect getaway for my fiance's birthday. The cabin was a suprise for him, but we both enjoyed it to the fullest. Simply the cleanest and most quaint place ever! We totally loved it and cannot wait to go back and use the lake and fish this summer!

Quaint and relaxing tobacco cabin! All the conveniences of modern day with the quaint front porch, fireplace, and rocking chair...all in a beautiful private wooded setting! I am a female professional traveling from West Palm Beach, FL, visiting family in NC area and stayed for 3 nights. (Honeymoon cottage.) I enjoyed the complimentary WiFi in the cabin for work, with Direct TV, refrigerator & microwave, coffee pot, and a wonderful breakfast each morning. The staff prepared a tray for me, so I could enjoy the morning with a good book on the porch while enjoying my coffee and yummy breakfast. At night enjoyed a nice glass of wine on the porch...in this peaceful setting. Great hiking, wine tours, peaceful, quiet, and relaxing. VEry close to Pilot Mountain for additional hiking. Flew into Greensboro aiport from Miami and less than hour from airport. Very clean, great service, and helpful staff. I am a NC native, leaving in my 20's..so glad the owners have renovated this beautiful project and sharing it with others to enjoy a little history! Would highly recommend and planning my next trip to try and catch some snow!!!

We have stayed at Pilot Knob Inn 3 times and in Feb will be our 4th. Just a short drive from the beach to such a beautiful and serene place. The hot tub, real fireplace and personal service are just part of the beauty of this place. It doesn't hurt to be nestled in the heart of NC wine country. You won't be disappointed

After a long day of Christmas Shopping we stumbled across this wonderful b & b. We stayed in a Tobacco Barn Cabin it was great! My husband had been follwing me around all day and we were exhausted one store after another. This was the perfect night with the fire and the whirlpool! We were thrilled to have found this perfect escape from the real world. My husband may now be more willing to go shopping with me. The staff was wonderful in finding a place to recommend for dinner. We enjoyed everything and it was very clean (and I am picky lol) Loved it hopefully we will be back for the New Year!
5 on December 06, 2007
Such a wonderful experience for a winter vacation. The cabin was very inviting & warm for us lots of firewood ready and stacked on the porch that impressed us. We had a great night and really enjoyed the great breakfast with lots of goodies! Then we topped it off with a day of wineries came back and nestled in to watch the fire and we will return again and again! Thanks so much to our wonderful host!
5 on December 06, 2007
We spent 2-1/2 days in a tobacco barn renovated for use by the B&B. There are about six tobacco barn cabins and several other more modern facilities. We much preferred the barn! We were pleasantly surprised to find an ample supply of firewood stacked neatly on the covered porch. All rooms were clean, towels new and neatly stacked, and the bedroom inviting clean and neat. The jacuzzi bath was clean and in good working order. We were met as we drove into the parking area and personally shown to our cabin and the history of the site briefly reviewed. Basically the room was exactly as advertised or better! HWY 52 is a bit too close resulting in highway noises that did take a little away from the woodsy ambiance -- but we found it no problem. We read two books of entries from previous visitors in our cabin and found them virtually totally supportive with indications some have come back several times ... or they planned to return. We most certainly plan to return. The staff is very accommodating and helpful. The breakfast each morning was quickly served and very tasty. Coffee and OJ was served as we sat down at our table. You will have to bring food for lunch and dinner or go to any of the many restaurants in small towns nearby. This is a wonderful place with a truly wonderful view of Pilot Mountain! Go for it ... you'll not regret it.

I stayed at the Pilot Knob Inn in November 2007 and had a wonderful time! I chose to stay in the Love Shack which was very clean and romantic. The breakfast was HUGE and the service was perfect and discreet. I will definitely stay here again and again. It's the perfect romantic getaway!

Wow! Wonderful suprise we could not have been happier anywhere! We were skeptical so we drove up to view the property and look in one of the cabins. It was exactly what we were looking for & what we needed. Looking forward to a return visit when we have more time.

We found this Intriguing Bed & Breakfast and decided to give it a shot. We decided to do a wine tour on the Yadkin Valley Wine Trail so we choose the Yadkin Valley Honeymoon Cabin it wasn't our honeymoon, but it sounded like fun! We drank a lot of wine & found our way to Pilot Knob and our cabin it was great. We had so much fun we felt like teenagers again & the staff was a blast! We are going to get a group of our friends together & rent all the cabins and go fishing & grill out! The whirlpool was so big we got lost in it & do not use too many bubbles just a suggestion! Randy & Michelle

I took my husband for a quick getaway in the Heavenly Hideaway Room since we had never been before we chose this room because it was the least expensive and on special. We thought for the extremely low rate we could not go wrong. We could not have been any happier every single detail had been thought thru there was not anything that was missing in our room. We had a very private suite and even with a full house we never knew it till the next morning when we woke up to go to breakfast and went outside the entire parking lot was full. The evening well exceeded out expectations and we will return to either that suite or another we got to view two other suites that we loved and will be back hopefully before the Spring time.

We really enjoyed cabin #2 we picked it because it was the most secluded and we could not have been more pleased anywhere. We cannot wait to return. The wood burning fireplace was so enjoyable.

We had a perfect stay at Pilot Knob Inn we stayed in the Castle Room for our honeymoon night and the following night. We left and went on a cruise we wish we would have stayed in Pilot Mountain instead. We will be back to the Castle for our anniversary next year and every year. This was absolutely the cleanest room we have ever stayed in anywhere & breakfast was fantastic. Will and Jennifer were so friendly and accomodating and made us feel apart of the family. Kathy was more than a pleasure and they all attended to our every need See you folks next year!

Our rustic cabin in the woods was a complete pleasure. Wood stacked to the window & firestarters on the mantle. My wife & I stayed in cabin #1 we could not be any happier. Breakfast was great wonderful & so was the whole experience! We will be back next year for our Anniversary if not sooner I am so glad we found such a wonderful getaway not so far away! Don't use too much bubbles in the bubblebath! It's a good thing they put plenty of towels in the cabin I guess we aren't the first to do that! Cabin #1 is the best cabin! Kurt & Beverly Hassell

A+++ on every aspect of our stay! Breakfast, Hospitality, Cleanliness, Grounds. Our cabin couldn't have been cozier, cleaner or better decorated. The staff couldn't have been friendlier we will return. Thanks for everything!

My husband & I spent two anniversaries at this lovely B&B. In 2006 in the Pilot Knob Room 2 nights which was a 2-room suite, equipped with refrigerator, coffee maker, our own private HOT TUB outside under the stars big enough for 6. Kathy, who works in the dining area does a magnificant job. You won't find a friendlier more accomodating person anywhere. The breakfast was abundant, on your table in 5 minutes of being seated. We had "the works" every morning, a belgian waffle, canadian bacon, country ham, sausage, scrambled eggs, fruit, juice and coffee. We could barely eat again by dinner time. A love room, the Pilot Knob Room. This year, September 2007, our 4th anniversary we stayed in the Penthouse Room. It's a two room accomodation with an L-shaped sofa in LR with floor to ceiling windows, a large HOT TUB in the LR by the gas fireplace. We turned the a/c down, turned those logs on and enjoyed the hot tub. The Penthouse has a 1-1/2 bathrooms. Jennifer, the owner, is a phone call away. She responded within 10 minutes when I accidentally turned the pilot off on the gas logs. We decided to make 2007 a three-night stay. Once I emailed Jennifer to add a night responded quickly and telephoned me to confirm so the room wouldn't get reserved by anyone else. We enjoyed the cheese, crackers, sparkling apple cider, cheese cake for two,a decanter full of truffles for $45.00 on both our trips. You can order treats online before your trip. Whether you want to go visit Mt. Airy, Pilot Mount,the Blue Ridge Parkway,the Pilot Mountain State Park, or enjoy what's available right in these rooms, I would recommend this B&B to anyone. The rooms we stayed in had TV,DVD,VHS, and movies you can borrow. And don't forget to eat at Goober's and Aunt Bea's Barbecue in Mt. Airy, two of many good places to eat. Oh, -- and don't forget the many wineries in the area to visit!!! Thanks for a great time and we'll be seeing you soon! D&P Thompson

We stayed in one of the tobacco barn cabins for three nights it was one of the most pleasant stays I have ever had anywhere! The cabin was so quaint, cozy and clean. We were very suprised that an old tobacco barn cabin could really be this nice. My husband was raised on a tobacco farm and I thought he would really enjoy it. We had a fire at night and sipped a glass of wine that we purchased at the Vineyard earlier in the day. Breakfast was excellent with Country Ham, Waffles & eggs, apple cider & pumpkin cake. To say the least we really had a great time & will be back. We cannot wait to tell all of our friends!

The tobacco barn was the absolute cutest thing I have ever seen in my life we felt like we had stepped back in time 100 years or more when we walked in. They had the porch stacked with wood & firestarters for our fire, coffee, cream, whirlpool had bubbles waiting the loft bedroom was just so romantic the entire experience was better than we could ever have imagined and we will be back. We even took out a rowboat & went fishing and caught between my husband & I 12 fish in half an hour! We will be back before Winter is over this year! Shauna & Matt

My husband and I needed a quick getaway & nothing could have been better than the Pilot Knob Suite they had it listed on special thru bedandbreakfast.com & we found it thru your site it was the most incredible room I have ever seen the website does not do this place justice. We go to bed and breakfast all the time & have never seen a place like this it is so much more private than any other bed & breakfast. The breakfast was wonderful & the staff is so friendly they made you feel like you had been coming for years which we will be return guest for sure. We rate the Pilot Knob Suite #1!

From the moment we arrived we fell in love with the charming atmosphere of the rustic yet so upscale we had reserved the Castle Room and entering into our suite we could hardly catch out breath it had everything privacy, huge whirlpool larger than we expected & our own Sauna we were well pleased & the breakfast was wonderful. We spent our weekend touring wineries & went to Goobers & The Wolf's Lair all Jennifer recommended & it was wonderful the whole experience was great! The lake was just an added bonus we will go back in the summer when we can really enjoy that!

We visited the Pikot Knob Inn a couple weeks ago for a little mini-vacation and to rekindle an old romance. From the moment we walked through the door, we knew it was the perfect setting to get to know each other again. The first thing you notice walking into the tobacco barn cabins (we stayed in #4) is the wonderful smell of the wood...we enjoyed a cozy fire every night we were there while snuggling on the loveseat. The whirlpool tub was nice for a soak in the evening to relax and talk about what we'd done that day and what we had planned for the next. Upstairs, the bedroom was perfect complete with a small deck to head outside with morning coffee. The breakfast was wonderful and the innkeepers and staff were just fabulous--very friendly and offered some great suggestions on restaurants and local attractions to visit. We visited one of the recommended restaurants, Goobers, and enjoyed it. Great, fun atmosphere and a wide selection of good food. We also toured one of the local vineyards (Shelton Vineyards), sampled their wines and had lunch there. I highly recommend it--even though it was cold when we were there it made for a really nice day and we brought some wine back to the cabin to enjoy in front of the fire. Our stay got us off to a great new start and we'll definitely return for another visit in the future!
