Fantastic accommodations. Kim & David were very friendly & helped us seek out area attractions in near-by Smokey Mountains. The country breakfast was amazing! This is one of the friendliest B&B we have ever stayed in. Just loved it.

As B&B owners ourselves, we always look for B&B's when we travel. We found a gem when we stayed at "THE MINNIS HOUSE" in New Market, Tn.a quite little town with lots of history. Kim and David were wonderful hosts and saw to our every need. We hope to visit again.

Everything about the place was wonderful! It was beautifully decorated for Christmas, the food was delicious, and the rooms were so comfortable. We enjoyed our stay so much. Highly recommend it to anyone. Thanks for making our stay so enjoyable.

From the moment you meet David and Kim Stapleton, you realize you've found the right place to stay while visiting this part of Tennessee. Located just outside of Knoxville, Dave and Kim are knowledgeable about the many attractions (and even the area's history) to be found here (Dollyland is close by, for instance). The house itself couldn't be nicer: more than a hundred years with its own rich history, yet complete with all the modern conveniences. Kim and David make you feel right at home, (actually, part of the family), and given its rural setting, there is no better place to relax and be with good people. So put The Minnis House at the top of your list. You will want to stay more than just one night or two, and definitely will want to return.

The hospitality of the innkeepers cannot be beat. They certainly go out of their way to accommodate your desires. The food is delicious. It's a wonderful place to stay if in the Jefferson County area.

We stayed 2 nights with our 5 month old and would do it again! They have a beautiful home and the owners do a fantastic job taking care of every need. It was so nice to find a place that was open to having a baby there and he slept GREAT!!!! It is super clean and the property is well-kept. It is a fantastic place for Carson Newman visitors to stay.
