Beautiful

4.0 on October 10, 2008

Beautiful views. Lovely breakfast (love the homemade granola!) Really more of a "country inn" than a bed and breakfast in my opinion. Only grumble would be the dogs barking right under our window at 7 am.


First Experience w/ B&B

4.0 on June 15, 2008

The Inn was so relaxing and our stay was just the perfect setting for our anniversary. We hiked the Great Smoky Mountains and soaked in the spa tub after a relaxing candlelight dessert each evening. A delicious breakfast got us ready for our daily hikes. We will go back...A+++++++


Charming!

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. The room was spotless and comfortable. The views are breathtaking! The innkeepers were delightful! The breakfasts served were outstanding. I highly recommend staying here! We plan on going back again in the near future.
