We completely enjoyed our stay here. Rest and recuperation were high on our list of things to do on this trip and the Inn was very conducive to that. Our host was always friendly, hospitable and helpful without ever making us feel intruded upon. (We are sometimes uncomfortable in B&Bs where the hosts are too clingy. Just us.) Our room, the Appalachian Suite, was very spacious and comfortable, particularly the bathroom with a large open shower and the famous copper tub. The bed was excellent. Our room was quiet, but we were the only ones in the Inn that weekend.
The full breakfasts (cheese and mushroom omelettes with bacon one morning, pancakes and sausage another) were delicious.
The Inn is within a block of main street and a short stroll to the Barter Theater, the Tavern, Willa Jacks, and everything else there is to see in Abingdon.
