My husband and I went through many B&B's on this trip and this one was ok. I expected more from the pictures. Very old house still under renovation in some areas while we were there. Did not like the fact that there were a lot of bees flying around the front entrance when we walked up to the front door. The owner kind of joked around about it but I did not find it amusing. Bathroom was a bit on the small side. Food was ok. Walked away still hungry. I can not say that I would recommend this place.
We are never happy when a guest isn't happy! At the time these guests visited we were searching for a beekeeper to remove the (healthy) bees. A week or two later there was success and the bees are gone! Renovations are an ongoing reality of old houses IF you don't want them to fall apart. Given the rain the Southeast this summer, it was impossible to schedule all repairs when guests were not present, especially those visiting Monday through Friday. The work being done was on the other side of the house at the time of their visit. By the end of August all major repairs/workers present will be complete (no bees, no pealing paint, Victorian colors). The room they chose is the least expensive--and the reason is because the room is large but the bathroom is definitely "one at a time" with a large shower stall. These guests may have preferred our pancakes (very filling) but perhaps we thought they'd enjoy Gourmet Herbed Eggs with a pastry and meat--something enjoyed by people who are riding in cars and not planing a lot of exercise and those who have been traveling and say "we've been eating too much" We are sorry our choice for them failed to hit the mark. We commend these guests for being frequent visitors to bed and breakfasts and we hope they'll continue to visit B&Bs throughout the country.

My boyfriend and I took a scenic trip through Tennessee on our way to the Prospect Hill. It was a gorgeous journey (especially for someone who likes to drive), but the mountain roads took -considerably- longer than I anticipated. I was so nervous about arriving to the inn late that I called ahead; Judy told me not to worry, gave me some (much-needed) directions, and set up an easy way for us to enter the room past desk hours (which last until 11:30pm). When we -finally- arrived, our weary feet gladly sunk into the luscious bed provided in our large, comfy room -- complete with a fireplace! In the morning, after a good night's sleep, I bypassed the clawfoot tub for the shower. Perhaps it was the travel the day prior, but this was possibly the most refreshing shower I've ever had. Finally, my boyfriend and I made it down to breakfast around nine. We enjoyed a seasonal fruit cup (homemade with strawberries, grapes, water- and honeydew melon!), a cup of coffee (there was also tea or hot chocolate available), orange juice, and a glass of ice water all before we were served a platter of cinnamon pancakes, bacon, and a little extra fruit! The pancakes were fluffy in the extreme, and we had the opportunity to coat them in homemade cinnamon syrup! Absolutely delicious! Plus, the conversation at the table was warm and inviting. Judy is highly knowledgeable of the area and Robert couldn't speak without dripping with wit! They are a delightful couple. If I pass through the area again, I will most certainly stay at the Prospect Hill. Hint: Be sure to check their last-minute rates! Our room was a mere $109 before taxes.
Thanks for your kind words. We are delighted when our efforts hit the mark and guests like you appreciate our efforts. We look forward to your return visits.

The town of Mountain City, TN is one of the most beautiful mountain towns I have ever seen! Prospect Hill was an additional jewel in the crown! Our hosts were welcoming and provided us with a tour even though we arrived late. When I called to say that we were trying to get over to a wonderful restaurant (Tributary) before it closed, they called ahead to let them know we were coming! The views of the mountains from the hill that their beautiful home sits atop were magnificent! With 2 small balconies, a 2-sided porch and a backyard to take in the views, I was able to 'click' away to my heart's content. Breakfast was hearty and healthy. Even though we were headed west, it was worth going a few miles off our path to see this gem of a town. Stay at Prospect Hill and be twice blessed!
