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

We stayed here 2 nights on way from Pennsylvania to Florida. Wanted to do some hiking on the AT. The owners went out of their way to help with great recommendations and transportation. Biking would have also been great. The place is very clean and the room was nicely setup with fridge, microwave, coffee maker, some basic kitchen supplies, fresh... More

I can't believe how lucky I was to stumble onto such a great deal! The room was very clean. Everything worked, and worked well ( especially if you plug in the a/c lol ) The Inn is close to everything, I parked my car and walked everywhere, until I went to Grayson Highland State Park (ask Bob & Dianne about...
