We were in town for a job interview and the employer put us up here. I was skeptical when I heard we were staying in a B&B but...it was FABULOUS and I would definitely stay again. Johannes and his hospitality were great. The home is beautiful and amazing. The breakfast was one of the best I have ever had (and I have travelled the world). The home was spotless and the rooms was marvelous. The towels, tub spa, water pressure, amenities, bed, view, etc... were all wonderful. I would highly recommend this B&B and will definitely stay there again if I am ever in town visiting. Don't miss it!!!!!

Love this bed and breakfast! Johannes is an incredible host. We loved hearing about his history as well as the history of this lovely home. My daughter and I were on a road trip to check out colleges and after a looooong day on the road, what a restful haven we found at Kilburnie!! Our third floor walk up suite was spacious, lovely and incredibly relaxing. The therapy bathtub was a godsend for our tired bodies and we slept like babies in the comfortable beds! Breakfast was a delish three course gourmet affair, yum! Should we make our way back to Lancaster, this is where we will stay!!!!

Last week we stayed in the Walkup room at the top of the house. It was gorgeous and perfectly appointed. The house and the grounds are lovely. the hotelier is world class. It's really a must visit if you're anywhere near Charlotte.

The minute we met Johannes, and toured the property we knew we were home for the wedding. Johannes was genuine, warm and kind...gently encouraging and guiding us along the path until my daughter's beautiful wedding day. From the bridal portraits to the day of the wedding, he was most accessible, compassionate, kind and extremely knowledgeable. This graceful man, along with a very talented florist and caterer, presented my daughter with the wedding of her dreams. The Inn was beyond amazing and the breakfast so deliciously prepared, set the day on a cheerful note. Can't thank him enough, and hope everyone can experience Kilburnie at least once in their lifetime. Well worth the trip and more. Connie Robinson

My wife Robyn and I stayed at Kilburnie for our 18th wedding anniversary. Johannes was OUTSTANDING! You could say he's a _master_ at providing hospitality. He went above and beyond to make our stay delicious and comfortable. You will not be disappointed with a stay at The Inn. He cares and you feel it. The house and grounds were lovely and the bed was uber-comfortable. Make sure you allow time to hike the trails--he's got lots of acreage. Don't hesitate... book a night at his lovely house and you won't regret it. Peter & Robyn Charlotte, NC
