I traveled to the Abingdon area last week with a good friend to bike the Virginia Creeper Trail and spent three nights at Black's Fort Inn. Having never stayed in a bed and breakfast and being a pretty private person I was a little apprehensive. However, staying here was a wonderful, wonderful experience. Cindy is without a doubt one of the most welcoming, friendly, warm and genuine people I've ever met. We had fresh cookies waiting when we arrived and then homemade apple dumplings before bed the first night. After an incredible homemade breakfast Cindy had packed us a little bag with apples and muffins for our trail ride. We had hot apple cider when we returned and then a delicious spice cake waiting later in the day. The property itself is on a lovely, lovely setting with a pond and Cindy's beloved horses. The first morning we sat on the porch and watched deer running in the backyard :) The beds were sooooo comfy and we had plenty of privacy. I highly, highly recommend Black's Fort Inn! What a treat!!!
- 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
