A Little Slice of Heaven

5 on March 08, 2016

I was looking for a place as a private retreat, a spiritual place to relax. This place was perfect! The Moonshadow Barn was a perfect get-a-way room for me to be safe, traveling alone, but seclusive to feel I could cry, talk out loud, listen to music, journal, nap, whatever it was that I needed at the moment. Johnnie and Lori were willing to listen, encourage and help me. I appreciate the beauty, the peacefulness, and the serenity offered. I especially appreciated the relationship with Sharon, to be able to get a massage as a part of the trip. It is amazing that the service is offered onsite!

We visited for a romantic Valentine stay, and both of us are thrilled with the suite, hot tub/deck and the kindness of Johnnie (owner)! She could not have been more accomodating when ice storm hit and kept me on the premises for an extra day. I have stayed at many bed and breakfasts, but the suite here is probably my favorite- deck and pond/woods view is romantic, screened in porch wth hot tub and view is full of details which make one's stay easier (like extra closet space, great tub for bubble bath, vanity perfect for make up application, etc). Decor is gorgeous too especially suite with the hot tub! Boyfriend was equally thrilled with accomodations and loved the breakfasts! STAY HERE, YOU'LL LOVE IT!!

We spent 5 days at Peaceful Oaks. It was great!!! We visited local Wineries, motorcycled all over the area and enjoyed the B&B with it's wonderful Pool and quiet valley. Chris and Johnnie took great care of us!! We would gladly stay with them again!!!

Anniversary Getaway

4.8 on February 17, 2014

You exceeded our expectation! It was so cozy and relaxing just what we wanted for our anniversary! Romantic and secluded. We loved our breakfast. Johnnie is a wonderful hostess and she made such strides to make sure we felt welcome and happy! The room was beautiful and the hot tub was so wonderful. Drinking coffee (even with it being cold outside) on the deck was a wonderful way to start our day with deer running through the woods while we watched them, it was exactly what we needed. We will return to this bed and breakfast again.

Little piece of heaven

I loved this plAce. It was so clean and beautiful. The pool was so nice and beyond my expectations. It was an uplifting relaxing weekend. My step children and husband thought it was the nicest place ever. Every little detail to the room was perfect. The music and tv on the patio was great. I couldn't have asked for anything else with my stay.

Absolutely Loved Peaceful Oaks

5 on June 09, 2013

Southern hospitality at its finest. My husband and I booked a room for the weekend. Johnnie is a wonderful hostess and OUTSTANDING chef. The best cheddar biscuits, gravy and french toast we have ever eaten. The suites are beautifully decorated and completely stocked with anything you need. We stayed in the newest suite on the property and loved it. Johnnie was so helpful in providing suggested activites in and around the Jackson area. We loved the pool area and covered patio. We will definitely book again at the Peaceful Oaks.

Peaceful Oaks: Perfect name

Peaceful was exactly what we found our stay to be. Though we enjoyed the privacy, comfort, and beauty of Peaceful Oaks, we also loved to visit with our delightful hostess. Our daughter is getting married soon, so we were also thrilled to see the accommodations for weddings. This is the perfect venue for a beautiful event!

A Wonderful Surprise!!

5 on January 08, 2013

My sweet husband of 17 years surprised me with a little get-away for just the 2 of us ... leaving our 3 children at home (he even set up having a grandparent stay with the kids). So, he was earning oodles of brownie points before we even left the house, however, when we arrived at Peaceful Oaks I was even more impressed with the time he took in finding just the "perfect" place for us. Mrs. Johnnie met us in the driveway and showed us to our room. She had the fire going, candles lit and the room just smelled so warm and inviting. We were both amazed at the beautiful decor and spaciousness of the room....2 thumbs up for sure. We only had time for a one night stay, but it was WELL WORTH it .. we were able to enjoy a wonderful dinner in Jackson, a dip in the hot tub, a movie on the satelite tv, the fire, a good nights rest and a spectacular breakfast (you MUST have Mrs. Johnnie's breakfast!!) Really enjoyed the breakfast conversation with her as well. We hope to come again soon. Blessings from Bartlett, TN

"Checking Out From The World"

5 on October 29, 2012

When my husband and I married two years ago we "hit the ground running" and our lives, like so many others, are too full of busyness. Neither of us had stayed in a B&B before and this seemed a low-key way to spend our anniversary. When I chanced upon Peaceful Oaks I knew, "This is it!" And it truly was! Every dream, desire, and need was met here and the ambience was unbelievable. I did not expect such luxury and beauty. Miss Johnnie is a wonderful hostess, cook, and today I consider her a friend as well. I cannot rave on Peaceful Oaks enough. It was simply divine!!!

Our first bed and breakfast! What a great experience!

5 on October 20, 2012

My wife and I have talked about staying at a bed and breakfast many times but have never gone ahead and tried it. With our four year anniversary coming up, I thought this would be a romantic and fun adventure for us to try. Peaceful Oaks and Mrs. Johnnie did not disappoint. She and I spoke on the phone and traded emails setting up our itinerary. She gave me some amazing recommendations on things to do. When we arrived at her house we were so impressed with the decor and all the ambiance of the house. The Mellow Master suite was very romantic. The next morning we were treated to an amazing breakfast and great conversation. Thank you mam for treating us so well. We will definitely spread the word about your hospitality. This was the perfect way to spend our anniversary.
