Charming B&B in Jonesbourough, TN

5 on July 15, 2015

Every aspect of staying at Jonesborough Bed and Breakfast was pleasant and easy. The location is perfect for walking in to this quaint and historic town. The host was very accommodating, helping us to navigate to the places we wanted to visit, and making suggestions about food and entertainment. On his suggestion we had a nice hike to a nearby waterfall. Our space was very clean and cozy. We were delighted by the delicious chocolates in our room. Our stay here was perfect and we'd love to stay again next time we visit Jonesborough. Highly recommended.

This is a really special place

We were traveling to a reunion and needed a place to stay for the night. We are so glad we found Johnsborough Bed and Breakfast. Brian was a terrific host, very welcoming and also recommending a good restaurant for dinner. The house is charming; the beds comfortable; everything clean; and the breakfast was great! We will come back!!

Very pleasant stay

My friend and I needed a place to stay in anticipation of a destination wedding. Brian made the 36 hours of flying and driving from the east coast far less stressful. The green room is very comfortable and space overall is quite welcoming. So glad we didn't stay in a hotel as this was by far superior.

Great experience

My friend and I had a wonderful time staying here! Nice house, great breakfast, and perfect service. The owner, Brian, was so helpful! He made sure we had everything we needed and made himself available the entire time we were there. He also gave us advice about things to do in the area.

Great Location. Exceeded Expectations

Innkeeper Brian Mills extended us a lovely stay. Room was clean and nicely appointed. High quality mattress and sheets had us sleeping better than home! Fresh organic fruits, yogurt, granola and more paired with delicious coffee and conversation made for an exceptional stay.

Cozy,warm and welcoming!

This Bed and breakfast is very comfortable and warm. The downstairs room I stayed in was nicely furnished with the most comfortable bed, fireplace, always fresh water in my room. The host Brian goes above and beyond to make your stay wonderful even finding wine when all TN stores are closed, taking your coffee in your room and more. The location is prime for walking around historic Jonesborough or having a cup of warm tea on the porch people watching. I can't wait to go back!

The perfect place to stay with the perfect host!

I cannot write high enough praise for Jonesborough B&B and its proprietor Brian Mills. I came upon Jonesborough B&B when I needed a place to stay en route from DC to Nashville with my 7 month old. My baby was born two months premature and, as such, was quarantined through flu and RSV/cold season. I had to attend a conference in Nashville and, as a nursing mommy who also did not want to leave my little one, she had to come with me. I wrote to Brian with our situation -- that we needed a place to stay where we would be isolated from other people and where my baby would not be exposed to germs. (At 7 months, she is reaching for everything in sight and putting everything in her mouth.) He immediately called me and promised to do everything he could to assist us. And, indeed, he did! No other people stayed at the B&B the two nights we were there, and he had scrubbed down the spaces where we sat and stayed. He offered to carry in my bags, but not before assuring that he had washed his hands and was not sick himself. Further, because my baby girl would sleep next to me in the queen sized bed, he flushed the bed against the wall and rolled up towels to ensure she could not roll between any cracks. He understood that I brought our own sheets that I had washed in baby detergent. And these are just the actions he took for us. Additionally, he provided a top notch B&B experience with a beautiful organic breakfast prepared for me. I frequent B&Bs (I rarely stay in hotels), and the conversations with and hospitality of innkeepers are most important to me. Brian exceeded all expectations and I would be proud to call him a friend! Indeed, when my baby girl and I travel to Atlanta in near months, I will reroute my trip through Jonesborough so that we stay there on our way down and back. Finally, he has the kindest dog. We have four dogs at home, so our baby was thrilled to have another doggy to pet!

Simply Delightful !

From the moment we spoke to Brian to book our stay we knew this was going to be a perfect vacation. Brian was quick to respond and confirm our reservation. We stayed in the master suite. The room was impecably clean and the queen bed so comfortable. The log fire place was a nice touch as were the robes in the bathroom. Breakfast was a healthy combination of organic cereals, a variety of fruit, croissants, organic coffee and the fresh squeezed orange juice. Awesome! Brian was so helpful and directed us the best hiking trails imaginable, we just didn't want to leave. Can't wait to come back for a longer stay in the summer !

Great B&B in a beautiful home

I stayed here for a few days in late December, and very much enjoyed my stay. Brian is very wonderful to his guests, and definitely goes out of his way to ensure that you enjoy your stay....he even upgraded me to the master room at no extra charge, just because the rest of the house was empty! The location is perfect for a walk down to Main Street....I very highly recommend it!

Most enjoyable wedding anniversary

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at this bed and breakfast. We appreciated the unique breakfast offerings as well as the pleasant conversations with our host. In addition, we valued our hosts suggestions on dining in the area and what sites to visit as part of our TN experience. We would not hesitate to return for another delightful time in the future.
