Harmony Hill B&B

5 on October 22, 2014

The personal touch of the owner and employees was so evident in every aspect of this place. We had a most comfortable stay, almost like home! The breakfast was healthy and good with lots of fresh fruit, in a beautiful solarium. We will definitely go back again! We met Barbara, one of the owners, and she was very easy to get to know and obviously loved her place and community.

Our visit was delightful! Beautiful place to eat, sleep and enjoy the views. We'll definitely go back!

We will visit again!

This was our first visit to Harmony Hills. Rest assured it will not be our last. The property has spectacular views in any direction you look and has as wonderful walking trail through the woods ending at a picnic area along a stream. The house decor is warm and inviting. The gardens are beautiful, quiet and tranquil and we enjoyed our time just sitting in them and enjoying the view. The highlight of each day is the wonderful breakfast that was prepared for us by Barbara. Thank you Barbara & Jim for sharing your wonderful home with us. Andy & Colleen

Didn't want to leave!

We absolutely fell in love with Harmony Hill. The house and gardens are gorgeous. Barbara and Jim are warm and generous hosts...they'll sit and talk if you like, or just leave you alone if you prefer. The attention to detail is astounding. The breakfasts were great, especially the lemon pancakes with raspberry sauce. We went ahead and booked two more weekends before we left. And Bella, a 4 lb. fur ball who loves to nap on your lap, will just steal your heart.

What a beautiful respite and delightful stay! Serendipity took me to Harmony Hill. I will make a plan to return.

You'll love the Turkey Knob room

5 on March 04, 2014

My wife and 13 year old spent two nights at the Harmony Hill while attending a volleyball tournament. Barbara suggested the Turkey Knob because it had a loft and a winding staircase access. My daughter loved having her own "room" ' The house is marvelous. The views breathtaking. The breakfast puts this into a category of Breakfast and Bed because its just that good. We didnt eat again until we got home at 6PM. Your hosts Jim and Barbara are as welcoming as you will find in the South. We can't recommend it higher.

Hospitality at its Best

Our expectations were high prior to our stay however, Barbara and Jim exceeded those expectations in every category. The atmosphere was so comfortable, we felt like we were part of Halsey family.

A Relaxing Treat After the Holidays

5 on January 13, 2014

Barbara is the most gracious host and she certainly made our first B&B experience great. We enjoyed the history of this home and feel fortunate that she and Jim choose to share it with guests. Breakfast is a real treat for those of us who are always on the run. Just take a moment to stop and enjoy this hidden gem in Sparta and you will find harmony in the hills. Lisa Jill and Emily

We feel like family!

Our recent stay at Harmony Hill Bed and Breakfast was wonderful! The rooms are beautifully decorated, and the entire house is elegant but cozy at the same time. The grounds are gorgeous and we could tell that much thought went into the plants' placements as well as the decorative pieces. I wish the weather had been better because I could have easily settled down outside in a comfy chair with a book, enjoying the beautiful scenery. Our hosts, Barbara and Jim, were so warm and cordial we relaxed right away, and by the end of our stay my husband and I felt like we'd found long-lost relatives. Forget your diet when you visit because you will NOT want to miss the yummy breakfasts! Harmony Hill is a true gem, one I hope we visit soon again.
