This is the place to stay if you love Bed and Breakfast Inns and wonderful food!! We have fallen in love with staying in Bed and Breakfasts when we go on short road trips and Black's Fort Inn is my new favorite. We stayed the first of May to bike the Virginia Creeper Trail. Cindy, the owner was so helpful with setting up reservations for the bike shuttle, Tavern Restaurant and Barter theater and sending information about the area and places to go for lunch and dinner. The best thing about Black's Fort is that you are right there at the trail and so close to town.
Cindy and Jimmy are the nicest hosts ever and so interesting and easy to talk to about the history of the area. This is a small working farm with beautiful horses, cows and calves, an old dog and cats(outside of course) and ducks and geese on the pond. I even got to feed a baby calf while here!!
The breakfasts are AWESOME! Everything is fresh and so delicious! My favorite was the stuffed French Toast with fresh fruit compote, but the egg souffle and pumpkin pancakes with maple syrup were delicious also. Cooking seems to be a work of art to Cindy, her breakfasts are as beautiful to look at as they are to eat.
I could go on and on- the simplest thing to say is that the food, cleanliness, comfort and location to everything in Abingdon is the best by far of the 3 B&B's we have stayed at in Abingdon. We loved it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Black's Fort Inn is truly a very unique Bed & Breakfast. Our property looks as if we are out in the country but we are right in the middle of town situated on nine acres with sculpted hills, lots of trees and rolling hills. We are able to provide our guests with privacy as most of our Bed & Breakfast is designed for that purpose. Our pond is nearly an acre and has a waterfall where the water cascades down over the rocks makes the most soothing, relaxing sound, creating one of the most peaceful settings in the world. The outdoor balcony is very spacious and inviting overlooks our farm, pond and waterfall. The pond also serves as a habitat for several species of wild fowl and if you can relax long enough you can see the Canadian Geese fly in and land on the pond for their rest before leaving the next morning.Our outdoor balcony is very spacious and inviting. It overlooks our farm, pond and the lovely waterfall. We have a second porch that is equally spacious including a grape arbor that winds up at a cozy covered porch with the perfect view of our waterfall. Our guests tell us how peaceful and beautiful our property is.I love to cook for all of our guests and one of my most famous & favorite breakfast dishes requested is our "Cat Head" Biscuits & Gravy.Such wonderful memories are made here, and we make so many nice friends. All of the priceless memories we have of each of our guests make us so happy that we can share our beautiful place with our wonderful guests. ... more less
