I met several of my high school girlfriends at the Minnis House for a brief reunion. It is centrally located for Asheville, Nashville, and Chattanooga. The innkeepers are gracious, rooms impeccably clean, food delicious. My friends and I enjoyed catching up on their spacious porch and parlor. Will go again.
