What an extraordinary surprise! For quite some time now, my wife and I have made a point of taking time in October to getaway, relax, and enjoy the fall colors. To make it even more special, many years ago, we began searching for and staying in bed and breakfast inns. It has become and remains a very important time each year as we look to rejuvenate and reconnect.
I had never stayed, nor even heard of, the Copper Lantern in Abingdon. I can't even tell you why we decided to try it, BUT I'M GLAD WE DID. From the time we got there until the time we reluctantly departed, it was terrific. Kim and Betty are some of the finest host we have ever encountered, bending over backwards to ensure our stay and experience was exceptional. We stayed in the Washington suite. It was large, comfortable, and lovely. Meals were outstanding and the portions more than enough, SERIOUSLY!
If you can make yourself get up from the wonderful front porch, you'll find Abingdon is a beautiful and quaint little town with tons of history and charm. You will not be disappointed.
This is a real find and we highly recommend this B and B to anyone looking for an extraordinary experience. We genuinely plan on going back!
