Step Back in Time

4.6 on August 16, 2017

We stayed in the cottage where the view of the knobis excellent from the porch. So relaxing. All life's cares fade away. The bed is so comfy didn't want to get up, but that would defeat the purpose. Kathy made home cooked breakfast that was just right. Her friendly wats make you feel like an old friend. My husband enjoyed the lake and caught fish each time. Thank you for sharing this delightful place with us. We peeked in two unoccupied cabins and they are charming.Makes you feel like you've stepped back I time. Don't hesitate to book here. Oh, and there is a pool, and it was delightful.

Happy 4th of July!

While driving home to Chicago from visiting family in Savannah, we decided to break at the Pilot Knob Inn. Upon arrival, we were pleasantly greeted by lots of deer ... one w/ a baby & another seemed so happy to see us playfully waging its tail. It was so inviting entering our Cabin 2 ... a/c & lights were already on for us; & we loved the really convenient check in ! The cozy cabin decor was perfect, etc., etc. & Breakfast was delicious. My husband also caught lots of fish. 1st & absolutely the best time staying at a B&B....." was so nice to meet yas Will, Jennifer & Kathy. (Such truly wonderful people). & Many Thanks again y'all for the hospitality & memories! Happy 4th of July! we'll be back!

Amazingly peaceful!

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights and we were floored by how amazing this place is! The views are magnificent, the accommodations were phenomenal and the breakfast was pure love. The vicinity is serene and quiet. The first night there were a total of 3 couples on site. The second night there were 8. We never heard a peep from any of them. This was our first vacation sans children in almost 20 years and it was the perfect choice! We are looking forward to going back soon!

Perfect romantic secluded hideaway

Stellar experience start to finish! Beautiful location, delicious breakfast, and perfect relaxing getaway. We stayed in No. 6 - the Yadkin Valley Honeymoon Suite. This was the first 24 hour stretch my wife & I have been alone together as a couple since our son was born nearly 20 months ago. We couldn't imagine a more restorative experience, especially with so much jacuzzi time! Easy to check in & out. Thank you for the miraculous relaxation we had here that we now take home to our toddler, refreshed to continue our parenting journey...!

Mayberry Days Vacation

5 on September 25, 2016

This is our 4th trip to Pilot Knob Inn and love how peaceful and relaxing this place is. The cabin is a perfect get away for my husband and I to just chill, play some golf, plus the bonus is the closeness to Mt. Airy, love Mayberry Days. The service is great and food is cooked to order and so much of it! Cabin is clean and cozy, with a really comfortable bed. Also love the two person jacuzzi tub. Already reserved our next visit as soon as we got home. Dave & Tammy Drown

My boyfriend and I loved this place, it is so peaceful here and relaxing. The ladies that run this place are fantastic, the breakfast is amazing and everything is cooked to order. You are right down the street from Pilot Mts. The lake view is amazing with the Mts, in the background! We will be back very soon!

Weekend Getaway

5 on March 30, 2015

Our children gave us gift certificates to any Bed and Breakfast...and after searching and looking at many B&B I came across the Pilot Knob B&B.....we stayed in cabin 2 and it was absolutely perfect. If you're looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life this is the place for you. Time seems to stand still for a while. It ended up being very cold but that made to fire my husband built in the fireplace even more beautiful. Just sitting there listening to the popping and crackling of the fire was very peaceful. Breakfast was great.. the owner Jennifer was so nice and her helper was also. We will be going back and we will stay in another one of the cabins if not # 2 again......We loved it.....so glad i came across it while surfing the web....I passed up all the B&B in the big cities and chose this little cabin in the woods...so glad I did :) Looking for something to do...go to Mt.Airy and learn more about the Andy Griffith Show. :) David and Sara :)

Great For Romantic Getaway

If you like a rustic look and feel, but want to enjoy the amenities of a modern place, this is the place for you. We stayed in Cabin #1 and the view of Pilot Knob from near our cabin is amazing! The cabin was clean and cozy. The rustic look was nice, but we had central heat and hot water. So, all the amenities of home. My wife and I spent our days in Mount Airy, but Winston-Salem is a short drive as well. The breakfast is absolutely amazing! Great food and great company from the owner and her cook. They make it so easy to like this place. I would definitely go again!

Romantic Get Away

My husband and I spent our wedding night at Pilot Knob Inn Bed&Breakfast and loved it. I was disappointed that I was not able to have a long honeymoon but when I arrived I felt like I was in heaven. The cabin was so clean and beautiful I wish I could live in it. My husband and I returned for our three year anniversary and was just as special as my wedding night. The staff is so friendly and welcoming. I would recommend this place to anyone.
