This is our 3rd stay at Hippensteal's...always peaceful and relaxing. The owner Vern and his wife Lisa are wonderful hosts, very helpful in offering recommendations and are just a wealth of information regarding trails in the park, restaurants, things to do. The rest of the staff are just as friendly and helpful. The breakfasts are amazing...definitely don't need lunch! And you may need to walk off that breakfast on those trails! The view of the mountains are magnificent and it's great to sit outside in the mornings and evenings. And, another little perk are the evening desserts!

Room Tip: Each room is uniquely decorated; corner rooms can be a bit more private as each opens out onto the balcony.

We have stayed at Hippensteals for many years. It never gets old and always feeling warm and inviting. The rooms, the staff, the views, the porches, the breakfast, did I mention the breakfast or the evening snacks in the kitchen? Highly recommend.

Room Tip: We have stayed in most of if not all of the rooms over the years, all are excellent.

Our room overlooked Mt. LeConte, and the entire mountain range. We had an upstairs porch with rocking chairs, and porch swings where we could sit in the evening and enjoy the quiet beauty of the mountains. The room was beautiful, with art by the owner Vern Hippensteal, a fireplace was there for cool evenings. Best of all was the breakfast by Chief Lisa Hippensteal. and served by her husband Vern. the dining room is also overlooking beautiful mountain vistas. Most enjoyable weekend, looking forward to returning agan.

Room Tip: All rooms offer wonderful views, quiet, comfortable rooms.

This place is FABULOUS !! I want to thank Vern, Woods and the very sweet lady from the kitchen. Unfortunately I did not catch her name. A special thanks to Woods as he is a delightful young man and is much appreciated. We didn't get a chance to thank him before we left. We can't wait to go back with our dear friends. Many thanks to all of you for making us feel right at home.

We just spent two nights at what is probably the nicest B&B we have ever been in. If the " craziness" of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg keeps you away, please know that Hippensteals is a little bit of heaven. It is located high above the fray and it is so peaceful with gorgeous mountain views out of every window. The inn is wonderful but the food is even more amazing!! I can't say enough about this friendly, family run inn. I can't wait to go back.
