My husband and I spent a September weekend in this B&B. It is located in a peaceful country setting a few miles outside of the always busy Nashville and close to Brown County State Park. It is right on highway 46, which has a lot of traffic. We could hear traffic noise but it wasn't bad while we were there. The grounds are very nice-a large, open yard with a couple of hammocks, a gazebo area and several sitting areas available. There is a side porch with rocking chairs facing the yard where a multitude of hummingbirds zip in and out, chattering around the feeders.
We had the Maple Leaf Room, a second floor room with a king bed with lace canopy, beautiful gas fireplace, jetted tub in the bathroom and jacuzzi tub in the room. There is also a small sofa and a small flat screen TV in the room. (There are several DVDs available that guests can borrow and watch while visiting.) We used the fireplace both nights that we stayed; very nice. The jacuzzi tub in the room is my only complaint of the entire weekend. It is a small tub and very loud. I tried to use it one night but decided it made too much noise. We have a jetted tub at home that isn't nearly as noise as this one.
Breakfast was served promptly at 9 although coffee, tea, soda, juice, fresh cookies and popcorn are available at all hours. Breakfast was wonderful both mornings. It started with fruit-one morning cooked apples with cinnamon and the next, fresh strawberries with cream. There was also a beautiful yogurt and fruit served both mornings. One morning, pumpkin pancakes with sausage and bacon; the following, an egg/potato/ham casserole with bacon and English muffins. We thoroughly enjoyed breakfast both days-neither of us eating again until dinner time.
The Gunns are wonderful hosts, very friendly and fun to listen to. We would definitely return to this B&B and have already referred friends.
