“Fabulous find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2008

With our son starting college here, we needed to find that 'home-away-from-home' for the next four years. Well, we've found it! Paul and Cindy are the most gracious hosts. Their B&B is just lovely with a nice porch to sit out on and room for the kids to kick a ball. They have a great attic space which they let us use for our kids for just an extra $20 which was very reasonable so three of them slept there. Breakfast was delicious and they let our son join us for no extra charge. They gave him their number and said to call if he ever needed anything -even if it was just a home cooked meal. We have stayed their twice now and will happily go back.

Paul and Cindy are wonderful hosts and have stocked the pantry with snacks, sodas, spiced cider and fresh cookies. Cindy bakes some of the best snickerdoodles I've ever had! (My wife even got a dozen for us to take on the road.)

Paul is a chef by trade and it shows in the breakfasts. The blueberry-stuffed french toast was just amazing.

The B&B is very cozy and romantic. Our room was great with plenty of room. The common living room is very warm with a wood-burning stove and the dining room has a beautiful glow.

1902 is centrally located very near the Blue Ridge Parkway, Grandfather's Mountain, Linville Falls and many other attractions.

We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this little hideaway.
