We're so glad that you keep coming back again and again. Have you stayed overnight? We've been getting so many happy comments about our new mattress sets throughout the whole house. Lots of comfy snoozing around here! More

My husband and I dined, for the first time, at the Red Rocker Inn yesterday in celebration of our wedding anniversary. It was more than we could have hoped for. We were seated in the main dining room - a lovely table at the fireplace. Our meal was scrumptious - from the "small plates" to dessert. Delicious, beautifully prepared and... More

Great "down home", yet elegant atmosphere. You will find the fare at this Inn well above average, and pleasing to the palate. I would highly recommend this lovely, charming establishment.

Thank you for your nice review! I love your description - "down home, yet elegant". That's exactly what we feel like this historic home should be. And we have some great historic stories to go along with it! More

Our family enjoyed a perfect dining experience at The Red Rocker Inn this last Thanksgiving. We had limited time together with my dad and so skipping the prep and cleanup gave us more time to relax and enjoy each other's company. We did exactly that thanks to the care-filled preparation, service and menu of the Thanksgiving feast offered here. We... More

Our fourth Thanksgiving and always a pleasure and like being with family for the holiday. Meals are outstanding, diet before you go, I gained two pounds. We love being walking distance to a lake and town where there is plenty of shopping to be done. It's our home away from home and you will be made to feel so welcome.... More

Charming and quaint Bed and Breakfast with restaurant. We have been there several times and they never disappoint. Staff is very accommodating and the food is amazing. Don't forget dessert. It is so worth the calories!

I first heard of the Red Rocker Inn while in the mountains thirty years ago but only recently ate here for the first time. That was a mistake. We will be back again before we head back home. The food was excellent (the desserts are to die for), and the service was as good as we've ever had. It probably... More

We do feel like our guests are family, and love to treat each one with care. And we love serving locally sourced food whenever we can. Our daughter, Kaylea, shops at the local farmers tail gate market and we also have produce delivered to the back door by the farmer who grows it. Thank you for writing! More
