Loved Every Minute Of Our Stay

5 on February 18, 2015

We had an amazing stay. The B&B was amazing and beautiful. The rooms were elegant and Homey. Judy and Robert made our stay even better. The breakfast every morning was beautiful and delicious. The ambiance was to die for. We loved how at home we felt here. Four stars aren't enough for this establishment. We give them a 10. We can't wait to go back.

What a wonderful B&B

Judy and Robert run a wonderful inn in a lovely historic home with all the modern upgrades you could hope for. Breakfast is tasty, creative, and plentiful, and the rooms are lovely: each one has a distinctive theme and wonderful furnishings, and when we were there (five visitors in three rooms over Christmas) the seasonal holiday decorations were simply gorgeous.

Very friendly and accomidating!

We arrived late after everyone was sleeping. They left notes on all doors and light switches that showed us exactly where to go. Very easy to work with. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Better than home

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful week in this excellent home away from home. Hospitality and facility exceeds our expectations each time we visit here. Thank you!

Wonderful stay!

My husband & I arrived later in the evening than we had planned, but the innkeepers were kind and welcoming. Our room (the Wagner bedroom) was charming and clean, had a private bathroom with a separate shower & clawfoot tub. I enjoyed the small details, including bubble bath, candles on the bathroom's fireplace mantle and Oil of Olay samples. Although we did not spend any time outside on the private balcony, we did take pictures of the spectacular view from the room. Judy and Robert are very knowledgeable about the area and gave us information on prospective real estate. The house itself is gorgeous and their new addition makes a beautiful wedding/anniversary venue. Mountain City is small & quiet, perfectly located for a short drive to Bristol (via the 421, aka "the Snake" - beautiful drive, especially on a bike) but also very close to Virginia and Boone, NC, which is why we liked the area. Breakfast was fantastic! I can't say enough about our stay, other than we'll come back again!

Beautiful wedding venue

4.6 on September 10, 2014

My daughter had her wedding ceremony at Prospect Hill last weekend and it was absolutely lovely. The owners made sure every detail was covered and the honeymooners felt pampered in the first floor room with jetted hot tub and private porch. Highly recommended and the bride and groom want to go back!

Lovely Weekend in a Beautiful Setting

5 on September 10, 2014

Our extended family chose to hold a special small wedding at this lovely location. What a pleasure it was to stay in this historic home with the great service and care Provided by Robert and Judy ! M Haven

Best of my experience with b&b

5 on August 03, 2014

Found that plans made by phone easily were changed once I arrived and my hosts worked with me the whole time. The food was excellent and out of box.Being able to have someone to talk with when returning at night added to family atmosphere.

Wonderful B&B

5 on July 11, 2014

Robert and Judy could not have been nicer hosts and spent a tremendous amount of time with us explaining the local culture/attractions. The Inn was spotless and our fellow tenants were entertaining. The Inn is centrally located to the mountains in Tn, NC and Va so you don't have to drive far to sightsee. I highly recommend this Inn to anyone desiring the beautiful mountain scenery. How can you beat temps in the 50s at night during the 4th of July? We wish Robert and Judy all the best and we hope we have the opportunity to stay at the Prospect Hill B&B in the future.

Lovely and gracious B and B in historic home!

4.8 on July 09, 2014

We had a relaxing and most enjoyable stay over the weekend of July 4th complete with viewing of Mountain City's superb fireworks display from the lawn of Prospect Hill on Saturday night. The hosts are warm and gracious and helpful in every way. The home was clean, quiet and spacious. Highly recommend!
