I had a hard time deciding between this B&B and another one in Mentone which would have provided more of a gourmet-style breakfast with homemade jams and quiches. However, I ended up choosing this one for 4 reasons: the VIEW, the King size bed, the giant bathtub which also has a view, and the fireplace in the room. I am... More

I had never stayed at a B&B before. I searched several in the area and decided since this one said it was on the mountain and had a view, we'd try it. I was thrilled once we got there and were not only greeted by the hospitable inn keeper, Joe, but shown around the house and to our room. The... More

Except for the fact that DeKalb county is DRY, this is a fantastic property with views out to three states, great breakfasts, seclusion, privacy, leaf changes, more room than you could want in a B&B, and lots of other features. We wanted to "get away" and see some leaf changes for a few days, and were incredibly surprised by this... More

We came for a weekend to relax and enjoy the mountains. We were told that we could eat breakfast with other guests, or Joe would bring breakfast to our room. We decided to eat in the main area with other guests and we are so glad we did! What a delightful time around the table! We all stayed after we... More

We had a wonderful stay at this B&B. It was built just a few years ago, so while rustic, it's still modern with plenty of deck space. The views were beautiful and our suite was comfortable. Joe was personable and cooked delicious breakfasts every morning. You won't be disappointed.

By far the best part of this beautiful bed and breakfast is the spectacular view from the back deck! You are able to see three states (AL, TN, GA) from the back of the house while relaxing on the porch swing. There are only two suites, so it is a private experience (although it was nice getting to know our... More

Enjoying a quiet morning in this beautiful B&B Birds chirping as a quiet breeze rustles the trees. An occasional train rambles by far below. Big wraparound porch off our room over looks this quiet valley. Furnishings in room fantastically elegant. Delightful snack and looking forward to room served breakfast. A winner retreat

What a wonderful place to spend the weekend. Incredible views of the valley below. Cozy, wood paneled room. Hosts were incredibly gracious with great advice on things to do in the area. We were given total privacy when we wanted it. Sunday breakfast was absolutely 5-star.
