Well maintained, clean, comfortable. Warm hospitable host and hostess. Very knowledgeable of area. we could not have asked for a better experience or place to spend time. We could easily have stayed several more days and had plenty to do... or not do anything at all.

We had such a wonderful time at Killahevlin. The owners are such nice people and great cooks. Really enjoyed each day's breakfasts. Having a pub in the B&B with a "help yourself" style of serving was great. We loved sitting in there with other guests and just talking. Would definitely recommend this to anyone.

All the details that the owner has provided make this B&B a wonderful place to stay. Food was great, host/hostess were friendly, porch was wonderful with an amazing sunset. Additionally, the property was well maintained.

We so enjoy visiting bed & Breakfasts. We enjoyed our stay at Killahevlin for the most part. The house was well kept. The baked goods were yummy. The rooms were so beautiful and comforting. Our downsides were big to us and worth sharing with you. We reserved our room (The Green room) many weeks in advance. When we arrived, we... More

We are not perfect. We try to be as good as we can be, but some people cannot be pleased no matter what you do. if we acted offended, it was because we WERE offended by the rudeness of the comments that were thrown our way. Mattresses are very personal. It's sort of like the Goldilocks story ... one's too... More

This B&B has a beautiful large screened porch. We arrived just as a thunderstorm was coming in. We were able to sit on the porch and watch the lightening show, while sipping good beer provided by the hosts. Fantastic gourmet breakfast.

This was our first time at a Bed and Breakfast and didn't know quite what to expect. It is a quiet and relaxing place. Tom gives great tips on different places to eat and things to do in the area. The breakfast that was prepared for us was incredible. We really enjoyed the small town atmosphere. We will be going... More

Came back after just over a year and brought our friends with us. A wonderful time was had by all. Loved sitting on the porches and at the bar. We hope to make this a annual tradition and bring more friends each time!

You will receive no better breakfast anywhere, and likewise with service and accommodations. Enjoyed the small-town atmosphere of the local restaurants. Met young couple, who were about half-way through hiking the Appalachian Trail. For us older folks, I highly recommend driving a couple of hours on the Skyline Drive. Thank you Tom and Kathy for the memories!

Loved the feel as soon as we walked in, albeit a little after hours but was warmly and immediately welcomed by a kind welcoming letter to us. The decor and aroma was very inviting and brought back great memories typical of arriving at grandma's house when a child. Very esquisite and charming. Even with somewhat creaky steps, which is a...
