Rocky and Jayne were incredible hosts and made sure we had everything we needed....from the amenities in the cabin to making sure we had a fire pit every night overlooking our beautiful... More

In keeping w/ my effort to be honest, I would like to first say this: There is a tiny, self-serving part of me that does not want to write this review. Because it means next time I want to go here, the rooms may all be booked!!!! Our stay here with friends for a weekend of football at the Battle... More

Such a wonderful and unique experience, staying at the Edmondson cabin (behind the Emory House B&B, owned and operated by the same folks). Once you open the door to this very authentic old cabin, you fall in love with it! To me, it's was like taking a walk back in time, like in the 1700's time period. The snacks, the... More
