Clean, quiet, comfortable beds, and wonderful hosts in Karen and Steve. Plus a very short drive into town. We had to leave early the second morning so we missed a breakfast but they provided a carry out for us. We'd definitely stay there again.

I believe that was the nicest room in the house. I didnt get to see it. But ours was very nice on the second floor-think we just had a shower though, but the 3rd floor I heard was very nice.This was my favorite bed and breakfast I have ever gone to.

Is there room for 3 adults and 2 children to stay together?
Booking for five people would require more than one room reservation although we do have two rooms (the Craig-Toms Suite and the Marion Hall room) that have a queen bed as well as a day bed, perfect for three adults. Please keep in mind we are unable to accommodate children under the age of 12 years old. If you have any questions please give us a call at 828.255.7673!

Hi, I am curious if the bathrooms are walk in shower or tub/shower? Thank you.
Thank you for your question! Like many of our past guests have stated we have two different shower options: The Fannie Rice and Margaret Grace rooms have a tub/shower while the Marion Hall and Holger Nielsen rooms have walk in showers. The Craig Toms Suite has a soaking tub as well as walk in shower.

Lisa and Madelyn purchased the inn from Jim and Linda on 3/23/2015. Those reviews were from guests who stayed prior to the new owners taking over.

I don't know if they allow weddings on their property, but You should call them and ask. The innkeepers are very accommodating. If they can't do it, they probably know of a place that does. No matter what, you should try to stay with them sometime. It's lovely there.
