After coming up the mountain into the beautiful drive that is surrounded by wildflowers, I was greeted warmly and felt welcomed. Breakfast each morning was suburb in presentation and taste and will fill you up until dinner! Comfortable rooms and bathrooms that you wish were in your home ....I went to the retreat to work so never left until checkout... More

Thanks for your review. It is always nice to know that folks find our place so relaxing they just don't want to leave. We don't want to see any of our guests go hungry -- when you want to stay and relax we offer bag lunches and a dinner, but these items need to be ordered at least two days... More

My husband and I stay for two nights in June. Jim and Mary have a beautiful home and they are wonderful hosts! We have stayed in many B&B's and the Chilhowee Mountain Retreat met our expectations! This is without a doubt, one of the cleanest places we have ever stayed! Just a little warning on the road up the mountain... More

First we want to thank you for your review. Yes, the road up to the retreat is climbing up a mountain. The road is steep in places and narrows to 16 feet in some areas. There are places to park trailers at the foot of the mountain, or you can just bring it on up since we have trailer parking... More

We are so pleased that you found us for your romantic getaway. We're glad you felt like family and enjoyed the breakfasts--after all, you go to a bed and breakfast to have a special breakfast, not something you do on a daily basis. We thank you for your wonderful review and look forward to seeing you again. More

My husband & I stayed in early May for the weekend. I really can't say anything different than everyone else. Jim & Mary were extraordinary hosts. The B&B was gorgeous, the rooms cozy, the breakfast delicious, the views...amazing. Which brings me to my one (mini-not really) complaint. We were so comfy & relaxed at the retreat that if we had...

There is no doubt why there is a 99% excellent rating....I stayed here after a full day of exhilarating driving my new BMW on the Moonshiner 28 and Tail of the Dragon.

I cannot adequately describe how great a weekend here is because to do so would require some sort of advanced degree in creative writing or literature which I do not possess.
