We came to the Inn with another couple...expecting to rest, relax, and enjoy the beauty of the mountains. And...indeed we did! This location far exceeded our expectations. The décor of each room as well as the public areas are exquisite. The breakfast and evening desserts were prepared with great detail and attention to the very best from the expert chefs.... More

Recently returned from a trip to Gatlinburg with family. We stayed at this B&B 20 years ago and loved it; decided that this time (tried 2x prior to get in and was always booked) we would book early enough and let our family members enjoy this "little bit of heaven!" They were pleasantly surprised by this hidden paradise. Our 2... More

This has the feel of a mansion house with the elegance and attention of a 5 star hotel. The rooms were beautiful (ours had a jaccuzi bath tub), the beds were extremely comfortable, and the innkeeper served us breakfast (which was an eggs benedict with homemade muffins) and there were delicious desserts to choose from in the evenings. The stars... More

We came here with our two best friends who we have shared many wonderful memories with. The majestic mts, hospitality, decor, delicious breakfast and nightly goodies made this the ultimate bed and breakfast experience. Thank you for being a part of another shared experience with our friends who are really our family by choice.

Been coming once a year for a few years (7). Have reviewed before and everything is still the same. Nothing has changed. Still good. A good place to relax. No flat screen TVs or entertainment system in rooms, just a very small tube tv. But we rarely turn on a tv anyway. So go with the mindset of relaxing in... More

We THOROUGHLY enjoyed our stay at Hippensteal Inn!! We were only staying one night during our trip to the old Gatlinburg arts & crafts shops and decided to splurge on the room rather than paying less and having to drive to a regular chain hotel. Other B&B's in the area were full, and thankfully so! This beautiful place is well... More

We have been staying here since the Inn opened. We come the same time every year. When we check out, we also make our reservation for the same time the next year. Our first stay, we didn't know anyone. Now it is like a family reunion. There are a number of us who come the same time we do and... More

This should be number 1! Amazing is all I can say. Absolutely awesome service from Lisa who checked us in and showed us around. She was so helpful and sweet. She showed us where all the "sweets" were at too for a little late night snack. The rooms are beautifully decorated as well as the rest of the inn. The... More

We visited Hippensteals again after our last stay 4 years ago. First, let me say that returning earlier was our plan but due to some medical issues caused by a physician, we had to delay until now. We called and, as always, were greeted warmly by Vern Hippensteal. We were able to get reservations the first weekend they re-opened after... More

We have been coming here for over 20 years. The view, the amenities, the staff, the owners are all first rate. Nothing, absolutely nothing, has ever been wrong in any of our stays. I am dismayed that tripadvisor has allowed the one nasty review to stay on after I have repeatedly reported it in the past. That review was from... More
