If only Flo would agree to do baking classes.... she graciously gave me her baguette recipe but being her shadow for a day or two would be much more fun. Warm, wonderful, superior hospitality, are only a few adjectives to describe this home. Yes it is a home and a very welcoming one. I will be back

I have been here quite a few times. My expectations were exceeded again. Which is why I continue to return. Only had a short stay this time on my way back home, but as usual I was greeted as if I were almost family. There is always something new here as Florence & Carl continue to make changes to their home for the comfort of their guests. This time it was a new front porch. Although it was a little too cold to be outdoors at this time of year, I'm sure it will be enjoyed by all during all of the other seasons. I will continue to make this wonderful place a regular stop anytime I am in the near vicinity!

Flo's such a welcoming hostess, made us feel at home right away . Absolutely enjoyed the many details that make this home so special. The beautiful front porch,the back porch, the living room all invite you to relax and stay longer. Thank you Flo, we'll be back soon for more.

This was our 3rd or 4th time and I never ceased to be amazed at the new stuff to look at. This year is the incredible expended front porch and I don't know how Flo and Carl are going to top this one off. I guess I just have to come back again. I look forward to Flo's awesome strawberry jam and love her newest creations, blackcurrant and kumquat preserves, I, personally, would easily eat one whole homemade toasted baguette with those. I wish there was a Flo's Hideaway in every town we travel to. Until next year.......We wish you both a very Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy New Year

My husband and I drove up to Bristol Tenn. with some friends to watch him race.. After a 14 hour drive to watch him race his car, he went down the track once, and put the broken car back in the trailer. With long faces we left the track feeling our weekend was ruined.Our plans were to stay at Flo's Hideaway as it was only 8 miles from the track. We sadly left the track and arrived at Flo's, well our spirits were lifted,and weekend saved thanks to Flo and Carl. Between the friendship we shared, hanging out with Flo in the kitchen or Carl and Flo on the back porch. The smell of fresh croissants,and crepes. Carl's man cave to cool. Flo and Carl made you feel like more than old friends, they make you feel like family. Thanks again for saving our weekend !! Mike and Terry

When not painting, fixing up or renovating, foreign travel and antiquing are Flo's favorite. Gardening has become one of Carl's stress reliever and getting out on the motorcycles whenever time and weather permit is one thing they both love doing together. We enjoy having guests during special events in our area.
Paper thin pancakes, a favorite french treat with homemade fruit toppings and syrup.
