We will always remember our stay at the Inn at Jackson. First for the breakfasts and snacks. 4 choices of entrees at breakfast , every morning. Really loved having a choice . Sometimes a B&B can serve a "fussy" little breakfast that just gets old after a few days. Not so at Inn at Jackson. This woman cooks really good, stick to your ribs breakfast that should please anyone. Then they also have dry cereal, granola and yogurt for light eaters. My husband, who is diabetic, could always get enough protein at meal time to start his day properly. That is usually a problem when we are traveling.
The second thing I will never forget is my bear encounter. Came face to face with the biggest most beautiful black bear I have ever seen..and I live in the Smokie Mountains...I have seen many bears. Maybe never so close and unexpected. I was standing on the porch at the back of the house , talking on my cell phone. I looked up and standing about 50 feet from me was one huge bear. He looked up, we locked eyes and both froze! I finally realized I could be in danger and started scurrying back to the front of the porch. My husband alerted everyone else who was still at breakfast, and soon the porch was full of bear watchers.
Our stay here was good. We had the first floor bedroom. I was concerned that there would be privacy issues since the door opens into the lobby. But it was something that you adjust to pretty quickly and wasn't a problem The bed was very comfortable. There were two comfortable chairs in the room. The room is listed as handicap accessible. That is not entirely true.
The bathtub had hand rails. The toilet had a hand rail behind it...not sure how that would help a woman. And the toilet was not a high, handicap toilet, which is a major issue!! Also the inn itself can only be reached by climbing several pretty steep steps..maybe 8 steps. I have noticed that most places don't have totally handicap accessible accomodations, yet they list them as such.
We felt very welcome at the Inn. Taylor our waitress was always delightful. I spent time chatting with the cook, because I enjoyed her food so much. Even when we blew a fuse at 10 pm in our room, nobody got upset.
This is a nice place. It is an old inn, but comfortable, clean and newly painted. I would go back for sure. I do think that mentioning the fact that bears are roam the parking lot, would be a good idea. I shudder when I think how many people have run out to their car in the dark at night , not knowing that black bears regularly check out the garbage cans. Would not want to startle one of those guys!
