A warm welcome is extended to all. Whether you are traveling for pleasure or business, you will find my beautifully restored historic home in the heart of Jonesborough, a place you can relax and feel like you are home. As a seasoned traveler who loves bed and breakfasts, I finally decided to take the plunge and open my own. My hope is that I meet all your needs and expectations. I look forward to meeting you soon.

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!

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 !

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!

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.

Cozy, warm, clean and comfortable. Eclectic bohemian decor. Breakfast had the right balance of flavors and not your standard fare. Brian was incredibly helpful which sets this experience apart from my many other B & B experiences. Would highly recommend this location. In walking distance from downtown Jonesborough. Will be back...

What a find! Jonesborough B&B was initially chosen as a convenient stop on a long drive, next time it will be a destination. Brian is a gracious host, providing a very clean, cozy, comfortable environment for his guests. Breakfast was a fresh assortment of fruits, pastries, granola, coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice, and good conversation. Brian was also very helpful in suggesting restaurants and activities in the area suited to my interests and dietary preference (yes, you can get good vegetarian food in the area!) Looking forward to my next stay at Jonesborough B&B~

I am a traveling musician. I first stayed at Jonesborough Bed and Breakfast a couple of summers ago and enjoyed it so much that I stayed there again when I was in the area last month. The home is truly beautiful, the room I stayed in both times is very nice, a big comfy bed, lots of room, nice bathroom. I sleep well there, and feel quite at home. Brian is a most gracious host! The continental breakfast has been delicious each time, consisting of fruits, cereals, yogurt, croissants, coffee & juice, perfect! The house is in a great location in Jonesborough. The price is right. I prefer B&B's over hotels any day and I highly recommend the Jonesborough Bed and Breakfast! I will be staying there any time I'm passing through.

My husband and I have stayed in many bed and breakfasts in Great Britain but this was our first in the U.S. We were pleasantly surprised with the welcome we received from our host, Brian. To say that he went out of his way to make our stay as memorable as possible is putting it mildly. The bed was luxurious --the one thing not typical of an eighteenth century house! We were a little suspicious when we read we were to have a continental breakfast because that can mean anhything these days. Imagine our amazement that first morning sitting down to a bowl of granola, creamy organic yogurt, and topped with fresh, lucious blackberries, raspberries and other delightful fresh fruits. Brian, being English himself, even provided me with my favorite English breakfast brand of tea! Our daughter had arranged ahead of time for him to haave a gift basket waiting. His choices of "treats" were bang on. Thank you, Brian, for two great days in Jonesborough.

From the moment I called to book, Brian the owner went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and convenient. He gladly welcomed our dog, who loved running in his backyard, and had great dinner recommendations. His home is within walking distance of downtown, which is filled with antique shops to explore. After sleeping in the very comfortable master suite, he fed us a delicious organic breakfast. Brian will bend over backwards to make your stay perfect, whether for a quick getaway or stopping point. Will definitely return!

My wife and I came to the Jonesborough B & B to celebrate our baby-moon. We had a great visit and Brian was very welcoming into his home. His recommendations of local places to eat were right on ( The Dining Room) and his idea for a hike was spot on. He even let us follow him to the turn off for the state park. The falls we hiked to were beautiful even with the snow and ice. The B & B itself was very clean and comfortable and we will be recommending this get-a-way to all our friends and family.
