For our first creeper trail experience, our accommodations couldn't have been better. The dancing bear has small town charm, great food, fun outdoor areas (that we shared with our hosts & their animals) and most importantly wonderful hosts. Melissa & Shannon went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable, including paying attention to a nut allergy warning! We'll... More

After a whirlwind trip throughout Kentucky, the Dancing Bear Inn was nice place to end our vacation. Stopping mid-week, we had the main house to ourselves, a good thing since you do share a bathroom. The prices are reasonable and the room was comfortable. Melissa was welcoming and informative, providing good recommendations about area dining and activities. Add to that... More

The room was clean and well appointed, nicely decorated with all the amenities one would expect in a bed and breakfast. The breakfast was at 8 every morning and was not only delicious but also plentiful, which is nice given all the activities to do in the area. Melissa and Shannon were both great host not only insuring that all... More

Melissa, Shannon and Connor went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. Delicious breakfasts and generous hospitality.We stayed only 2 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. We look forward to our next stay at the Dancing Bear.

This was our second year in a row to stay at the Dancing Bear while riding the Virginia Creeper Trail. The rooms are super clean and Melissa and Shannon are fantastic hosts. The breakfast couldn't be better. Hopefully, I will have the opportunity to stay again! I definitely recommend it.

The Dancing Bear B&B provided the perfect ending to my Appalachian Trail section-hike this summer. I met up with my wife & oldest daughter there and we all stayed in the Papa Bear room. This particular accommodation features one large room with three beds (a queen and two doubles), as well as a private bath and kitchenette with refrigerator and... More

It has a microwave, small refrigerator & kitchenette as well as direct TV & it's own private bathroom (most of their suite do). The Inn is super Cozy. We viewed all the rooms & suites... More

Wow. This was my first stay at a B&B and I believe that Dancing Bear folks Mellissa, Shannon and Conner set a standard for hospitality in a beautiful location that may never be matched! We stayed in the Papa Bear, a large room with space for my 2 sons and my wife and I. The room was part of an... More

Outstanding! Melissa, Shannon & Connor were more than hospitable during our stay. We stayed in the sister bear room. The room was perfect, clean & had a private bath. Great value & location! We partook in playing a favorite yard game corn hole & enjoyed relaxing on the covered porch. Breakfast was incredible w/ amazing quiche, fruit & yummy muffins.... More

We were one of Bob and Diana's first people to stay after they bought the Dancing Bear. They are two of the best people I have ever met traveling. We started staying with them while attending the Bristol Races every year and it has changed to staying with our Grandchildren and riding the Creeper Trail to just a long weekend... More
