Stayed at Black's Fort during the week before July 4th. Cindy and Jimmy couldn't have been better hosts. The suite was private, roomy, and very clean. The bed was unusually comfortable. The property is a small working farm. There are several horses, cats, and a big, friendly, Lab named Pepe. It was quite pleasant, in the evening, to sit on the balcony, munching on Cindy's homemade cookies, watching the horses and the lightning bugs while listening to the waterfall. We had three homemade breakfasts. Each was quite different, and each was delicious. Finally, Cindy is a font of information and assistance concerning the attractions around Abingdon. We have visited many B&B's. Our stay at Black's Fort Inn was among the very best we've experienced.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Black's Fort Inn is truly a very unique Bed & Breakfast. Our property looks as if we are out in the country but we are right in the middle of town situated on nine acres with sculpted hills, lots of trees and rolling hills. We are able to provide our guests with privacy as most of our Bed & Breakfast is designed for that purpose. Our pond is nearly an acre and has a waterfall where the water cascades down over the rocks makes the most soothing, relaxing sound, creating one of the most peaceful settings in the world. The outdoor balcony is very spacious and inviting overlooks our farm, pond and waterfall. The pond also serves as a habitat for several species of wild fowl and if you can relax long enough you can see the Canadian Geese fly in and land on the pond for their rest before leaving the next morning.Our outdoor balcony is very spacious and inviting. It overlooks our farm, pond and the lovely waterfall. We have a second porch that is equally spacious including a grape arbor that winds up at a cozy covered porch with the perfect view of our waterfall. Our guests tell us how peaceful and beautiful our property is.I love to cook for all of our guests and one of my most famous & favorite breakfast dishes requested is our "Cat Head" Biscuits & Gravy.Such wonderful memories are made here, and we make so many nice friends. All of the priceless memories we have of each of our guests make us so happy that we can share our beautiful place with our wonderful guests. ... more less
