Planning my husband's first visit to the Smoky Mountains included a two night stay in Black Mountain at the recommendation of family in Oak Ridge TN. After researching online, we picked the Red Rocker Inn and called to make reservations because we would be arriving late. We have stayed at numerous B&B's worldwide and this one is a gem. Our hosts were a pleasure, accommodated our late arrival, and even offered an upgrade to a larger available room (we preferred the cozy double bed in the Seven Sisters room). Breakfast was spot on, with delicious homemade granola, the best biscuits I have ever had, and a buffet breakfast that would satisfy every appetite. The location made it easy for us to walk around town and enjoy the area shops and close enough for an afternoon drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Like another reviewer, we also stopped at the visitors center and learned the best dinner in town was at the Red Rocker Inn Restaurant. So, our one dinner while in town was their delicious panko breaded Trout, on the same night they were serving 60 people from a tour bus, and they managed with ease to make everyone feel special. This is truly a place to stay for both the comfortable accommodations and delicious food and if you enjoy the charm and warmth of an historic home, you will appreciate all the restorations the Bowman's are continuing to make to bring this lovely home back to its deserved beauty.
