We stayed at the Inn for two nights on a week long trip along the Blue Ridge Parkway. The owners, Barry and Beryl, were the perfect hosts. The combination of the food, the service, the accommodations, and their company was perfect. Whether you're having a cocktail from the deck and enjoying the fantastic view, enjoying a comfortable, peaceful evening of... More

After a little research we chose the Blacksmith Inn to stay the night. What a delightful experience! The proprietors, Barrie and Beryl were so kind and very friendly. We... More

This was my very first experience staying at a Bed & Breakfast, and I am thoroughly pleased with how our stay went. Barrie and Beryl are amazing hosts and they prepare wonderful meals. The views from the rooms or the balcony are positively breathtaking. Overlooking the horse farm and a pear orchard against a beautiful background of mountain skyline, it... More

My wife and I recently stayed here for 3 nights without kids. We had a very relaxed time, which is exactly what we needed. The full breakfasts were delicious, I mean really good, and they were presented very well too....We had curry/fish and chips one evening there, and that was also great tasting, and again well presented. Just don't forget... More

The proprietors are absolutely wonderful people. They were warm and very welcoming. The food was fantastic! If you are ever longing for a true English breakfast this is the place.

If you love country settings, staying at this inn is like a dream. The views are stunning 360 degrees from wherever you look. Horses, pear trees, rolling hills, pastures, so picturesque. I loved the wide openness of this beautiful B&B. Though it is not brand new, they've been around for several years, everything looked and the closet even smelled new!... More
