Beautiful home with the perfect front porch for relaxing. The Windover Inn exceeded my expectations. I cannot stress enough how clean this house is! The innkeepers, Glenn and Jennifer are welcoming and attentive. I wasn't able to stay for breakfast as my schedule had me leaving the house everyday before breakfast was served in the dining room. No problem for Glenn and Jennifer however. They packed me a delicious "to-go" breakfast. Yum! Will definitely be back the next time I'm in the area.

This was by far the best place we have ever stayed at. The rooms were impeccable, absolutely gorgeous and the bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. Glenn and Jennifer (I dubbed them Glennifer) were so kind and accommodating and there are not enough words to express the deliciousness of the breakfasts they prepared. Fresh fruit, home made scones that were to die for, waffles, quiche, fritatta's...you name it, they made it. I cannot wait to return! Thank you Glenn and Jennifer, you made our trip that much more special!

Want to get away to a charming spot with sheer unadulterated beauty surrounding you? This is the place. The innkeepers were so sweet and welcoming. The inn is SPOTLESS and nothing is out of place anywhere. The breakfast was off the charts. Beg for the homemade scones. Best I have EVER eaten. You will want to go back soon!!!

Stayed overnight at Windover B and B this week, our second visit to this beautiful old home. Jen and Glen are excellent innkeepers -- always friendly, helpful, and caring. Their home is immaculate with comfy beds, quiet surroundings, and superior breakfast. On this Friday morning, we had raspberry swirl yogurt, frittatas (with vegetables and herbs fresh from the garden), ham steak, and muffins. Yummy! Jen even remembered that I am not a coffee drinker and brought juice and ice water without my reminding her! The front porch is a great spot to enjoy an afternoon beverage, the ever-present mountain breeze, and a home-made cookie or cheese wafer, compliments of the house. If a walk around the grounds is on your agenda, you will love the well-kept flower beds and pathways through the garden. The only minus for this always-wonderful place is that guests do not have a view of the mountains, and getting to the house means driving through a working-class neighborhood that is a bit untidy--both of which are completely out of the control of the owners of Windover. You will not be disappointed if you choose to stay here. We love it and will return as soon as we possibly can.

Just returned home from a really nice time in the mountains of North Carolina. Stayed at the Windover Inn and found it to be very comfortable, quite. and in a perfect locations for waterfall touring and mountain hiking. Glenn and Jen were great and the breakfast each morning was out of this world! Glenn's french toast was to die for!

We decided to spend our 25th wedding anniversary at a bed and breakfast. The Windover was perfect for us. It was such a relaxing time and the food and amenities first rate! The suggestions for activities and dinner were very helpful. The gardens were lovely and our room was very comfortable. Thank you for making our anniversary a very special one!!
