My 10 yr old son and I stayed here Saturday and Sunday (March 7-8, 2015) and had a truly memorable stay. The Innkeepers, Jenny and Doug, are great hosts, professional, and show the hospitality you'd expect from folks who have been in the hospitality business for many years. We were in Black Mountain to visit Camp Timberlake where my son... More

This was our first time ever staying in a bed a breakfast. I must say we were blown away. My wife and I spent hours reading as many reviews and as much research of The Red Rocker Inn and its surrounding areas as possible. I was very skeptical to say the least. Although my wife, the adventurous type strongly suggested... More

Not only were the accommodations second to none, but the food was as remembered--marvelous! Never having met the new to us owners of the Inn (they have been there over 7 years), my... More

This was our second time to have dinner with family and friends since November. The service was great and food delicious. We started with hush puppies, cheese tray, and spinach dip. It was followed by hot biscuits with pumpkin and apple sauce. We all had a variety of steaks, trout, salads and numerous deserts. We had a party of 7... More

Inn owners, Doug and Jenny, were the ultimate hosts. This family owned Inn was charming, comfortable and affordable. There is a variety of room styles and sizes to fit any budget. The food is fantastic as Doug and Jenny's daughter is a chef and is involved with the meal planning and preparation. I would suggest staying on the 2nd or... More

While this review is a little late, we stayed at the Red Rocker Inn from 10/18 thru the 10/21/2014. What a pleasant experience. Doug and Jennie are gracious hosts and were very engaging. Our 1st night there we decided to eat in the restaurant, which proved to be an enjoyable experience. We all (there were 4 of us) enjoyed our... More
