Left FL ahead of Irma with no destination in mind, and found this incredible B&B! Chef Dannie is talented in so many ways and is facinating himself. Inn really is indescribable - see for yourself!

My husband and I are both senior citizens. This Inn is a delight for all ages. Loved sitting on the front porch just rocking in the rockers and sipping wine. Really enjoyed our trip to Kings Mountain.

Great B and B

We stayed here for one night last week. The service, helpfulness and friendliness can't be beat. We spent an afternoon walking around downtown Shelby. Nice area with plenty of food and drink options. Mart's breakfast and tour of the historical home was very interesting. If he has the sausage for breakfast don't miss it. It was great.

Weekend Getaway

5 on July 31, 2017

We had a wonderful time at the Inn of the Patriots! Chefs Marty and Stormy and the staff were absolutely wonderful. We felt welcomed and well taken care of while we were there. The daily breakfast was delicious and meeting new people was an added bonus. The time we spent together each morning exploring the inn and learning fun facts and information about our Presidents was an enjoyable learning experience we won't soon forget! We highly recommend staying at the Inn of the Patriots!!

Oceanicus Blue Dreams Room

FULL PRIVATE BATH. Oceanicus Blue Dreams features a tip of the hat to Cornelius Vanderbilt and the great shipping fleets of the world he and the Vanderbilt family adored. As our mansion is only a short drive from the Vanderbilt Estate - the influence is strong. The Biltmore is still the largest private home in America and is now the most visited winery in America. We think this says a lot about where we live, in Western North Carolina. The desk has tons of tiny drawers and there are hidden items in each drawer to find and discover! Along the bulkheads are lighthouses and ships, spyglasses and shells, log books and scrolls of antique paper as well as shiny brass lanterns, cutlasses, iron handguns, knives, and swords. We have been shocked by how many ladies want to stay in this room! DirecTV with 400 channels and music, FM/AM stereo player with CD/DVD. Business Platinum 300 Mbps Wi-Fi. player.

We love antiques, history, we are both Chefs, wine, laughing, reading, fun, talking and cooking! We try to offer a fun-loving place that is not billed as being an elite, upper crust, exclusive Inn.

Signature Dish

Werner's Strammer Max
A great Chef friend of mine from Austria taught me how to make this dish from Salzburg - the famed Strammer Max of bread on a buttered skillet, Black Forest Ham, Swiss Cheeses and two eggs over easy on top! We continue to serve it and honor Werner from a town where the Sound of Music was filmed, Salzburg, Austria - a town I enjoyed visiting. We have also begun to serve the famous Cleveland Club sandwich made famous in Cleveland County, NC by my chef wife, Stormy and I.
