Inviting and Relaxing

5 on June 20, 2014

This sweet gem is within blocks of the Barter Theater on a nice quiet street. We stayed in a front room that had amazing light with four lovely windows and beautiful period furniture. The bed was super comfortable. A wonderful breakfast featuring fresh fruit and French toast prepared with homemade bread baked by the very personable hostess, Joan. This helpful and talented couple also gave us suggestions for interesting local activities that we added to our day's events and gave us directions to a nearby cemetery so we could complete some family research. We had a great stay and would gladly return if we are in Abingdon again.

Great for small children

We brought six young children with us, ages 4, 7, 9, 10, 11, and 12. There were also six adults, and we used up the whole house! The owner bought our tickets ahead of time at the Barter Theatre for A Christmas Story, and it was so easy to pay her for our rooms and tickets at the same time. We found the B&B to be family friendly and great fun!

A great stay!

What a great stay. Not your everyday breakfast, fresh fruit from the local Farmer's Market and other local treats. Homemade English Muffins were a great touch too. Joan was a great hostess.

The best scones we've ever had!

The breakfasts are the best thanks to Joan's homemade everything! We loved the pumpkin pancakes, strawberry scones, biscuits, and fabulous whole wheat toast. We had delicious fresh fruit from the local farmer's market everyday as well. Thanks Joan!

Our first B & B experience could not have been better! Joan makes "home" a place you can feel from the minute you walk in. Lovely home and area, peace & quiet, sleeping in a wonderful room, waking up to fresh coffee, and a breakfast explosion of local fare and flavor. What a great cook...thank you Joan! My sister and I look forward to getting back to the pampering and great conversations as well as another visit with out family. I left with a lovely and treasured coffee cup and some of Joan's homemade jam! SHAVERS has my high recommendation from the heart!
