The house was beautiful and you felt like you were back in that era. Marty does an amazing job at telling the stories and the food, "Awesomely Delicious!". I'd recommend everyone to try this historic place.
Food is amazing!!! Museum tour was great, Chef Martie is a great personal tour guide, not to mention his knowledge of the history of N.C. He will explain how and when NC became what it is today. The character he becomes during the tour is funny, whitty, and extremely knowledgeable of the past presidents and/or The White House. I'm not a history buff but truely enjoyed his explanation,energy and detail that he processes during the your. Although there is not a lot to do in the town of Grover, it is a perfect place to get away and just slow down. There are things to do with a short drive. All around, awesome experience!!!
My husband and I spent our 29th Anniversary at the Inn of the Patriots in Grover, NC. The house is warm and friendly, the rooms are decorated with the finest detail and very clean. The bed linens were so very soft and comfy. Most impressive was the staff and the home style breakfasts. Everything from the homemade dry cereal, sausage, pumpkin pancakes, homemade syrups, ketchup, and preserves. It felt like we were visiting lifelong friends and we are already planning to return.
We loved our first B&B stay at the Inn of the Patriots. Our host was gracious and helpful, and all the magical Christmas lights in the area (which they keyed us into) allowed for a lovely weekend getaway that made our season magical. The spacious and comfortable rooms, the amazing food, and the museum tour all came together to give us something completely unexpected and delightful. We look forward to making it a new tradition for us, and are so grateful we were able to truly experience this magical place.
We had never been to a B&B before the Inn of the Patriots. We were a little lost as to what it would entail, but we were happy for a new adventure. Marti could not have been more welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed delicious food in the area, then set about an excursion in a Christmas Light wonderland before nestling down into cozy, snuggly room, perfect for a weekend getaway or a much longer stay. Breakfast in the morning was scrumptious, and the tour of the on-site museum was a treat with a fantastic tour guide (Marti again!). We were incredibly sad to leave, and cannot wait to make it a new family tradition.
We had no plans, but to rest and relax and regroup. There were some local wineries, historical battle ground in King's Mountain (minutes away) and a cute town of Shelby with surprisingly great food (go to the Ni Fen Bistro!) Unplug if you can, and allow yourself to just wander and have fun during the day/evenings, but get ready for amazing break feasts! (aka breakfast)
You shouldn't miss a chance to stay here. Very enjoyable 2 days with cooking class. There is history abound and enough to do locally. Their restaurants are good and you can add some winery time
We enjoyed a great weekend at the Inn of the Patriots for our 21st wedding anniversary. The breakfast was awesome. My husband especially loved the eggs. There is a lot of history there and we especially liked the stories that the chef shared. We will definitely go again. Thanks Inn of the Patriots for a memorable weekend..
My husband and I did a quick getaway last weekend. We visited the Cowpens National park, and then spent the night at the Inn. Very clean and inviting, great memorabilia around the entire Inn, and the owners are informative and welcoming!! We highly recommend!
From the moment we stepped into the inn we correctly surmised this was going to be a good experience. The ambiance and the owners, Marti and Stormy, were friendly and welcoming. We were given The Baby Ruth Room, named for Cleveland's daughter. This room had no bathroom per se, however the owners had cleverly made one closet a shower and another a toilet area. While this made the shower a bit claustrophobia inducing, it beat having to go up the hallway to the shower. Beds are extremely comfortable and lots of electrical hookups are available for our digital world. Breakfast is provided at a long dining table. Everything from the first sip of coffee to our final day's pumpkin pancakes was delicious, as it should be coming from the kitchen of a former White House chef. Marti's tour of the house and presidential memorabilia, and his White House insider stories were very enlightening. Our full day's visit to the area included nearby King's Mountain National Military Park, SC; Owl's Eye Winery, and a delicious meal at Ni Fen Bistro in Shelby, NC. Highly recommend a stay here.
My husband and I decided to take a very small late anniversary trip this year. We just bought a house so the budget was tight. I bought a Living Social to The Inn of the Patriotists and decided to take a chance on a new destination. Our one night stay came with two free wine tastings at two different vineyards (Owl’s Eye and Baker Buffalo Creek), a Cider Flight at the local wine market, a free dessert, and a free appetizer. You really can’t beat this deal!! We went to the Vineyards on Saturday and arrived at about 5:00pm at the Inn. Kim greeted us and showed us around the place. It was very easy to check in. We stayed in the Baby Ruth Room. There is a private toilet room and then a separate private shower. They were both very small but, we knew this ahead of time. The room was quiet and peaceful. There is a beautiful front porch if you want to relax and enjoy some wine or tea. Breakfast the next morning was wonderful. We also enjoyed the tour of the inn with Marti. He loved giving us a history lesion which I very much appreciated. The little insights were wonderful. He was very animated. I also love that they want to help disabled veterans. Shelby is about 20 minutes away with a cute downtown area with a brewery, wine market, and some other cute restaurants and shops. We also hiked Crowder’s Mountain on Sunday. If you like the outdoors then that is a great spot. We truly had a great one night weekend getaway.
My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary. The innkeepers were very friendly and really made an effort to get to know us. This was our first experience at a B&B and they really made an effort to make us feel comfortable and welcome. It was nice that there was always water bottles, lemonade, hot tea and fresh brownies available in the butler's pantry. Breakfast was served fresh and on time every morning at 8am. We would definitely stay here again if ever back in the area. Highly recommended!
Found this place on Living Social while I was looking for something to do for my wife's birthday. The place was truly a gem. The room was filled with historic relics and the bed was cozy. Breakfast was amazing too and is served family style, so we had nice conversation with other guests.. Definitely worth the money. Just wished we had arrived earlier.
If you want to relax, learn, and really dine, visit the Inn of the Patriots and enjoy the comfy rooms, abounding historical connections, and Chefs Marti and Stormy's excellent, mouth-watering breakfast!!
