4.4 on September 26, 2013

Innkeepers were wonderful and went out of their way to make our stay a great memory. Hazel's food was great and without asking she served us early on Sunday to allow us to make it to church on time.


Very Exceptional

4.8 on July 29, 2011

Elegant, bright, non frilly room. Breakfast is amazingly good by a true professional gormet. Owners are exceptional in many ways, friendly, providing help for Barter tickets beyond the call of duty, and running a truely first class bed and breakfast. I don't love B&B's because I like my privacy; but this place was an exception. I was very comfortable and my 3 night visit to Abingdon was very enhanced by staying there.


excellent creeper trail and abingdon base

4.8 on May 21, 2011

We stayed 5/10 to 5/13. Enjoyed the hospitality of hazel and richard, she was very responsive to our breakfast preferences. We even chose to have a homemade dinner as hazel has a great deal of experience as a restaurant chef. They obtained great Barter theater tickets for us on request with having to hassle. Excellent rooms, decor and comfortable beds, the essence of a bed and breakfast. Our only limitation was having to work around the damage to the creeper trail after the may tornadoes, hopefully an accomodation by the city of abingdon can be made soon. Recommend without hesitation. Joe and Terrie from Kentucky


Terrible, Terrible, Terrible Management and Shameful Service - This Inn is OUT!

1.0 on January 05, 2011

We would never go back and would never recommend this B&B. Met upon arrival by Hazel who admitted they FORGOT WE WERE COMING! We had a reservation confirmation weeks in advance. Awful greeting- we felt like a total inconvenience. It's very obvious that this inn needs some TLC, updating, and fixing. We encountered heating issues, broken toilets, tarnished and green bathroom fixtures, burnt out light bulbs and things smelled musty. The decor was a mishmash of second hand junk. The towels looked like old rags. We noticed two different bugs in the inn. Our wastebasket was lined with an old Walmart bag and the bathroom hand-soap was a 1/4 full bottle from CVS. Overall, things were dingy, dusty and crusty. It made us wonder if the owners ever check the rooms. This is shameful for a B&B as we were paying for the quaint and comfortable amenities of this particular Historic Home in this historic area which we chose to visit. We were terribly disappointed. The owners were not prepared for our arrival nor were they able to handle the circumstances that came up due to their health issues. Situations came up that required our assistance and this is inappropriate. They were open for business though they seemed to not be ready or able to handle business under their personal situation. They should have implemented a back up plan which could have included hiring a part-time host or helper. Hazel even seemed unfamiliar with how to operate things in the house. Hazel commented about these circumstances not being her fault which leads us to question, then whose fault is it? It certainly wasn't ours, though she made us feel as if we were an intrusion. They are the business owners and hosts. They need to take responsibility of this business they own, have the rooms ready, and keep all things operating well and in good condition, or perhaps it is time for them to retire.

Innkeeper Response
This couple came to our Inn for a two night stay at the Gold Room at a time when we thought that we have canceled all impending check-ins within a two-week period. Towards the end of November, we found out that my husband’s complete knee-surgery was going to take place. And in four days after his surgery, I was flying out of state for a son’s wedding. So, I did admit that I did not know they were coming. The Inns are always in tip-top condition since we have housekeeping services and I have full charge of the inn. About two hours after they have checked in, the husband came down to tell me that he broke the chain of the Kohler commode tank. It is late in the afternoon, in deep winter, so I know that I won’t be able to get someone to repair the commode. I immediately decided to move them to the Blue Room in the second floor to save the inconvenience. This was an upgrade for them and I told them that they can have it for the same rate as the Gold Room. While they were settling in the Blue Room, I lit their fireplace and told them that I am downstairs if I could be of further help. They left for dinner/theatre, I am not sure. The following morning, I cooked their four-course breakfast and was waiting for their appearance at the dining room. The husband came down first, bringing down their luggage. It appeared that he and his wife had some disagreement or unhappiness. I waited around the hallway to find out what I can do for them. He said that they are checking out. I asked if there is anything I can do for them? He replied that they were cold in the Blue Room. The thermostat is set at 72 degrees and they had the fireplace going on. And I reminded him that when I was lighting the fireplace the afternoon before, I mentioned that if they need more heat, we have a portable heater available. He said that he did not hear me when I said that. But they were checking out before breakfast. of “emergency at home” or a quarrel going on between the couple.

The inn was friendly and inviting. Host and hostess were charming and willing to accommodate dietary needs and flexible with scheduling meals.
