“Discover Appalachian Hospitality at Estillville B&B in Gate City, VA”
Reviewed 10 October 2011

My husband and I have stayed at this gem of a B&B on three separate occasions - so far! After much searching for a B&B located west of Bristol Motor Speedway, we finally discovered Estillville B&B in an "Explore The Crooked Road" brochure. Listed as "A welcoming retreat," we have certainly found it to be that.

Gate City, Virginia, is just that -- a gateway. Its a quaint, quiet small town, yet it is close enough to the action in Bristol or Kingsport to be convenient. Estillville B&B is tucked away on a quiet street that is the old main street. The house was restored by the current owners, Mark and Jan Jenkins. The house is much larger inside than it appears from the street. The detail is incredible. I think the color of paint they chose must be called "Appalachian Hospitality" because the moment you walk in the door you feel welcomed and relaxed. (Although Jan meeting you with fresh cookies is a part of that, too!)

There are two potential noise issues that are out of the Innkeeper's control and haven't caused us sleeping issues, but could be a concern. The B&B is right around the corner from the ambulance and about a block away from a train track. We've never been wakend at night by either, and actually having EMTs next door could be a plus!

Jan's cooking is definitely comfort food. There is no way you could leave her dining room table hungry! An added bonus? Mark is the mayor of Gate City. Now, how many other B&Bs can claim their guests can have breakfast with the Mayor?!

Estillville B&B is convenient for anyone attending a number of events in the Scott County area: NASCAR racing at Bristol Motor Speedway, Clinch Mountain Music Fest, Carter Family Fold, Natural Tunnel State Park, plus other venues on The Crooked Road.

If you've never tried a B&B before, Estillville is the perfect place to start. The Innkeepers don't live in the house so that feeling some newcomers have of sleeping in someone else's house isn't an issue. And if you're a seasoned B&B traveler, you will thoroughly enjoy the attention to detail and appreciate the true mountain hospitality shown by Jan and Mark.
