Fall retreat

5 on October 30, 2014

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely time at Christopher Place during Fall. The balcony was perfect for sitting in the rocking chairs and enjoying a cup of coffee or a glass of wine while watching the mountains change before our eyes. The staff was very available and wanted to make sure our stay was wonderful. The breakfasts were the best I've ever had in an Inn or B&B. Our bed, pillows, and linens were so luxurious. We want to come back in the Spring to see the wildflowers and dogwoods.

Wonderful Romantic Getaway

Absolutely Spectacular! There are no other words to describe. The food,the staff,the atmosphere was incredible. Will most definitely visit again. It resides in an area that is fun to explore either on foot or by car. Impeccable venue!

Gorgeous view

This place is absolutely beautiful. The breakfast is great. The staff is phenomenal. The dinner wasn't as great as I expected, but there really weren't very many options in the surrounding area. There are a few chain restaurants in the town, but the dinner here is the best for what you get. I recommend only for the great escape and pure beauty.

Perfect Romantic Getaway

This was my first trip to a B&B so I wasn't sure what to expect. It was perfect!! The views from here are amazing. The staff is wonderful. They were continually asking if there was anything they could do for us. Breakfast & dinner both were excellent. It was late fall so we did not get to explore much of the grounds but what we did get to see was beautiful. Can't wait to go back!

First B&B experience

4.8 on December 26, 2012

We stayed at this resort after purchasing a Living Social deal they had offered. Having never stayed at a bed and breakfast I was a bit skeptical but this place exceeded all of our expectations. The room was well furnished, the staff was friendly, the breakfast was fantastic, and the views can not be beat. We loved it. The only down sides which are very minor and would not deter us from staying here again are 1. No individual temperature control in the room but the staff was quick to adjust. And 2. It is a little far from the national park sights such as Cade's cove but nifty unbearable to travel there. Love this place and have recommended it numerous times already.

Our first B & B

This was our first stay in a Bed and Breakfast. Christopher Place lives up to it's claim "An Intimate Resort." Relaxation began with the spectacular view. Our room was beautifully furnished. The breakfast was wonderful. The staff was unintrussive yet ready to be of service.

Great Place with Pool!!!!

Amazing, romantic and perfect

Wow! what an amazing destination. I wouldn't change a thing about our weekend at Christopher Place. The breakfasts were perfect before a busy day in the National Park and the afternoons were a quiet retreat to escape from it all. The views are unreal, the silence welcoming and the views breathtaking. Everyone we met from the owner to the staff, was so helpful and wonderful. They all went out of their way to make us feel at home, yet we never felt like they hovered. We didn't want for anything while we were there, and our picnic for the park was perfect. Christopher Place has out done themselves and is truly the perfect getaway. Here you forget about everything else and can reconnect with the one you love. In fact, we've already booked our next visit. This is one place that will be a destination for us for a life time.

Wonderfully Relaxing

This is our second visit to Christopher's Place and absolutely love it. The inn itself is beautiful and the rooms are very well appointed. Breakfast was very delicious and we had more than we could eat. We didn't get to eat dinner in the dining room this time b/c the dining room was closed for the weekend but ate in the pub and the fare was very good. We did eat in the dining room on our last visit and the food is superb. We will definitely stay at Christopher's Place again and we loved petting Ringo the resident cat who greats all of their guests.

40th Anniversary Nightmare

1.8 on October 26, 2010

We stayed Oct 18th & Oct 19th in the Roman Suite. The owner greeted us and said that the State has released Millions of Lady Bugs and that some might get into the room, but we will vaccume them for you as much as you like, and that the outside is going to be sprayed tomorrow. I should have realizied that this could be the start of a problem, which it was. We had numerous lady bugs in our room through out the 2 day stay. At one point there were 15 lady bugs in my room, which I informed one of the staff that was presently sweeping these lady bugs out of the hallway, which she proceded to come in and vaccume for us. In the morning, when my wife woke up, she noticed that there were a few lady bugs on the end of the bed, which grossed her out. The next night she slept in her street clothes. During the day, I addressed this to the owner, and all he kept on saying was that he was not responsible for the bugs. Now I say that he is responsible, as I was paying him almost $300 per night to stay in this room, that we shouldn't have to deal with bugs in the room. The owner could have offered another room, or some sort of a refund for this ordeal, but, he only stated that he is sorry that I'm not satisfied and he is not responsible for the bugs. The owner of this Bed & Breakfast might be nice when everything is ok; but when something is wrong, he is not customer oriented, but will expect you to pay him in full. We will never return. What a way to celebrate our 40th Anniversary.

Innkeeper Response
A 40th anniversary is a once in a lifetime escape and one we recognized immediately as something that we wanted to make sure was extra special for this guest. In doing so we provided over $200 of amenity value without even thinking twice about it! These guests had reserved a special room; but knowing the occasion, we chose to upgrade them to the best room in the house with sweeping views of the mountains and every amenity available including a wood-burning fireplace. The foliage had turned to peak colors and we were enjoying a couple of Indian summer days. We welcomed them with a complementary bottle of champagne upon arrival and explained the nature of the lady bugs in our area. Our staff is consistently recognized for the cleanliness of the resort and works very hard during these irregular days to ensure the visit of a lady bug does not impact our guests. While the visit of lady bugs is a not ideal, they do not bite, sting, or smell; like the rest of us, they are simply looking for a warm place to spend the winter. And like many of our guests, they enjoy the view from Christopher Place!
