This was our first B&B experience and it was exactly what we were hoping for. Highly recommend staying in the cottage to unplug, relax, and enjoy a getaway. The scenery is amazing. The hospitality is even better! We tried different menu items for breakfast, all were delicious. Heaven's Holler is definitely on our list of top places to visit again.

A Little Corner of Heaven

Beautiful views, lovely hosts, great breakfasts, horses, chickens, two dogs (Willie and Selah), music by our hosts. It was a wonderful 4-day weekend for us. John and Linda were not only our hosts but are now our friends. Highly recommended.

Relaxing, beautiful B&B

5 on October 16, 2016

After trying to find a B&B in NC, SC & GA and they were all booked, I found this sweet hidden gem online. It certainly did not disappoint and FAR exceeded our expectations! Everything was truly a dream. John & Linda were the most hospitable people I have ever met and everything from the breakfast to the dinner (if you come, you MUST do a dinner on the property at least one night), to the linens, and everything in between. My husband and I hope to make it a tradition now to come back...that's how much we loved it. If you come, you will NOT be disappointed!

Unique retreat with exquisite attention to detail

5 on August 03, 2016

I spent a weekend at Heavens Holler with my sister and we were extremely impressed by the place, the area and the lovely owners. We are both seasoned travelers and foodies and found the accommodations and the food to be top notch. The breakfasts were huge and delicious and we opted to have Linda and John make a dinner for us on the night we arrived which was also wonderful and complemented by a number of fresh-from-the-garden items. Meals are served on the gracious lodge porch or on the deck attached to the back of the tiny-and-adorable pub. The views are breathtaking, the service is understated and at every turn we were encouraged to linger. There were countless times that John offered us a drink -- and several times that we took him up on it! The effect is that we felt as if we were staying with friends and that we could fully make ourselves at home. As we were striking out on a hike on Saturday morning, Linda and John directed us to the summit of nearby Buffalo Mountain (a great recommendation) and also steered us in the direction of some great little places to check out in the town of Floyd (a charming and surprising town). Coming 'home' to Heavens Holler we spent hours exploring the trails on the property and lingering on the dock of one of the ponds. John gave us a great oral history of the property, the gorgeous space they've created there and how they came to furnish it with so many amazing pieces (including stone steps leading to the barn that date to the 14th century and that they 'rescued' and brought to the Blue Ridge Mountains from Provence). There are many places that I still want to see in the world so there aren't many destinations that I put on a return list. Heavens Holler is now on that list.

My brother had an early-summer wedding here and my family stayed in their 3 rooms. I don't think I could have imagined a more perfect wedding site and will probably never attend a more perfect wedding, and I think every guest there agrees. Pulling up to the property for the first time really takes your breath away, and just about everything about the property is picturesque and dreamy. John and Linda were fun to be around, accommodating, very warm, good energy. Breakfasts were fantastic. They really gave my brother and his wife a priceless, beautiful weekend that I think my family will be eternally grateful for. Nobody wanted to leave and I know that a lot of us will be coming back.

The views are mesmerizing!

The views are mesmerizing! My husband and I often stay and B&Bs and this one is definitely one of our favorites. We stayed in the Fountain Cottage which was very roomy and even has a kitchenette and a small living-room area. The bed was very comfortable, the night was dark, quiet and peaceful - perfection! We enjoyed the views while sitting out on the "knob" - at a 3,000-foot elevation, the views are beautiful - mesmerizing! There are many manicured hiking trails through out the property and while out hiking we munched on apples straight from the tree, spooked a few deer and even ran across a small family cemetery. They offer a menu of selections for breakfast and serve it up hot and tasty the next morning! What a treat! The Franklins have created a heaven in their holler and they sure know how to make people happy! Can't wait to go back!

Blue Ridege Heaven For Sure.

My husband and I stay at Band B's, every chance we get and this one is definitely at the top of our list. The setting is as serene and gorgeous as the pictures show. We stayed in the Loft Suite which was private, comfortable and romantic. We arrived and there was a plate of local meats and cheeses and a bottle of wine waiting for us, which we enjoyed on our private balcony with magnificent views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Breakfast was perfectly prepared, featuring home grown eggs and produce and we could choose from about ten items - something for everyone. We ate on an outside porch with lovely views. Linda and John were perfect hosts. Helpful and welcoming without being intrusive and obviously loving what they do and their lives. We can't wait to go back!

Truly an Amazing Experience

5 on June 09, 2015

Seclusion, service, serenity… splendid! It is truly a rare occasion that I would give 5 stars in the hospitality industry these days but anything less for Heavens Holler would be unjust. This amazing B&B nestled in the mountains is appropriately named… it truly is a little slice of heaven. From the breathtaking scenic surroundings to the welcome drink in the little ‘pub’ to the manicured walking trails to the unique accommodations, to the phenomenal breakfast this place is a must-go! Wake up with a cup of coffee and watch the sunrise and the wild ponies frolicking around in the field as you intake the delectable smells of Eggs Benedict New Orleans style or an amazing omelet with fresh eggs from the chicken hatch and fresh veggies from the garden. John and Linda will give you an experience that will create memories for a lifetime. I highly recommend a stay at Heavens Holler.

I hesitate to tell you....

I truly hesitate to tell you about this glorious slice of heaven. This happens whenever discover a true rare gem. It brings out the greediness in me and I find that I'm terrified that I'll find the place booked years in advance if the world learns about it. It's not just the breathtakingly beautiful location, or the gorgeous, lovingly renovated buildings filled with meaningful pieces acquired by John and Linda during their travels..... not even just the down to earth, welcoming presence of John and Linda, or the incredible cuisine coming out of their kitchen. This is one of those places where you suddenly realize there is no tension anywhere in your body or mind and you desperately wish you never had to leave. Really. But please....don't book when I want to go... that's all I ask.

Wonderful experience in Floyd at Heavens Holler!

Relaxing, beautiful, delicious, pampered. Words that come to mind when remembering our time at Heavens Holler. The accommodations are so beautifully detailed and welcoming. (FYI for persons taller than 6' 2", the bed in the lovely fountain cottage is a bit short to stretch long. But, otherwise very comfortable) John and Linda were perfect hosts! It's impossible not to consider them friends after our stay and we plan to visit them again and again! Truly perfect visit.
