first visit to Rutherfordton

4.8 on December 03, 2015

I stayed 3 nights and had a great time. Sandy is an amazing hostess and the family style breakfast allowed me to meet some really nice people. I stayed in room 4. My only recommendation would be to get up to date TV's, but other than that it was really nice


Great stay....again

Second time staying here and it was just as good as the last. Had room 6 which is like Your own apartment with a separate entrance and tons of privacy. Plan to return soon.

We had such a great time again in Rutherfordton and part of that visit included our stay at Firehouse Inn. We love staying there, it is just like being at home. Sandi is great and always makes our stay just wonderful. We always look forward to staying there when we are in town. Look forward to our next stay.

We've stayed at The Firehouse twice in the past year and each stay was an excellent experience. The owner and staff are very personable and welcoming. Have already made reservation a year in advance for my next high school reunion.


Delightful Experience

The wife and I stayed over a weekend. This B&B is nestled right in the middle of a small quiet town and you'd never know from the outside what a gem it is on the inside. Wonderful experience and we will be back. Everything from excellent customer service to delicious full service breakfast prepared for you and clean beautifully decorated rooms. This is a must for all the B&B fans out there..


EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS

5 on September 14, 2015

The pictures do not do the Firehouse Inn enough justice. Everything was clean, quaint and convenient. The bathroom and shower were new, spotless and refreshing. I would highly reccomend the Firehouse Inn to anyone staying in the area. Just perfect.
