A great stay!!

5 on December 13, 2013

This place is a gem! Dan and Lynn are wonderful and accommodating hosts, and the western NC-themed rooms are a really nice touch. Temperatures were below freezing when I stayed, so I didn't hang outside for long-- but I imagine the gardens would be a wonderful place in which to relax, in warmer temperatures. The location is great, too; right on Main St, mere steps away from the Main St. business district. Breakfast was delicious and included blueberry puff pancakes, scrambled eggs, seasonal fruit, bacon, and the normal morning beverages. All were prepared with the utmost care. At the time of booking, accommodations were cheapest of all of the available hotel options in the area, including the national chains. After staying here, I can tell you that this place is a no-brainer, with a wonderful home-cooked breakfast to boot! I look forward to staying here again!!


Satisfactory

The room met my expectations (although the bathroom door needs to be fixed so that it closes) and I enjoyed my stay.

Innkeeper Response
We checked all of our bathroom doors and found one that needed extra effort to close, adjusted it and it works fine now. We do our best to keep our rooms safe, clean and comfortable and we appreciate it when our guests let us know if anything out of the ordinary needs our attention. Thanks.


Great value
