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.
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!!
The Inn of the Patriots is a delightful Bed and Breakfast. The museum is very interesting and the added anadotes provided by Marti are an added bonus. The food is exceptional. We met some very nice peole staying here and spent a wonderful time in the town of Shelby.
