We annually go to the Bristol Spring race. We have stayed at Iron Mountain the last two years and will continue to go back. The Inn is very convenient to several parking areas along the AT. The total drive time to the Bristol track is one hour (and this is during prime drive time). Watauga Lake is very close by. Breakfast is always included with your rate and is always great. The Inn is very quiet and there are only 4 rooms to rent. No TV's in the rooms, so if you need ESPN, don't do it. This is truly a quiet, peaceful mountain inn.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- High atop the mountain this log home is THE place to get away from it all, Only bird song and wind song are heard as you enjoy the comfortable tables and chairs on the open decks and covered porches. In cooler months, enjoy a hot toddie in front of the wood burning fireplace. Read, play card and board games or just solve the problems of the world when you share your experiences with the other guests. Full filling breakfast each morning at a time of your choosing.....just before 10:00 a.m. please. Bottomless cookie jar filled with the famous Iron Mountain Inn chocolate chip cookies. Afternoon refreshments. On arrival light supper available, i.e. soup, sandwich, dessert, coffee and a complimentary glass of wine. "Pampering Perfected" service where guests are friends we haven't met. We have hiking trails right on the property and waterfalls abound to explore. Each room has a private en suite tiled bath with jetted tub and two of them also have steam showers. "Feet up comfort" is the mantra at the Inn. ... more less
