While traveling through the Appalachians last week, I selected Stand Fast Cottage out of all of the possible B&Bs in North Georgia because they were both friendly and professional on the phone AND the food sounded absolutely wonderful. Despite arriving in the late evening I was greeted very warmly, and the 5 star treatment continued through the next day.
But the gem of the stay was definitely the breakfast. Coffee set out early, then warm olives, tomato pie, breakfast casserole, fruit, pastry... it was all amazing.
The Cottage is also conveniently located near I-85, and eliminated the need to drive in a new city (Athens) at night!
