“Recommended for sure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2008

The photographs of Jim and Mary, the innkeepers, should be in the dictionary under "gracious" and "hospitable". This refined and well-traveled couple bring an air of sophistication to this already excellent property.

The welcoming wine was a nice pre-dinner treat and was enhanced with conversation with the innkeepers on the front porch of the Whitehead house.

Our room in Rosebud Cottage was immaculate and spacious.

We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay and can recommend this property.

This inn was fantastic! The rooms are gorgeous and very clean. It was quiet and peaceful. Peggy and her husband were absolutely the best. The food was delicious, served on time and the dining room was truly lovely. I really can't give this inn enough compliments. We plan to go back as soon as we get some free time. If you are looking for great spacious rooms at a very reasonable price and personalized service, then The Whitehead Inn is the place for you.

If you have a child going to Barton College and need a place to stay this is the best. You will enjoy the inn sitters and the breakfast is wonderful. The rooms are spacious with cable TV and wireless interent.

I found this B&B online and their website made it very easy to find availability, check out the rooms, and book online. Once we got there, we had a very nice room with everything we could have asked for. The hosts were very nice and cooked an outstanding breakfast using some pretty cool and unique recipes (e.g. home-made syrup for the pancakes).

The only small thing I could say that was not the greatest with this B&B was that the wall's were not very sound-proof in the house I was staying in (I'm not sure if this is true for all their buildings). Sometimes I could hear people talking through the wall behind my bed, which was a little odd. Other than that, this was really a great place to stay, a good place to get away to if you're not looking for a huge town.

  • Liked — The food was great.
  • Disliked — The walls did not block sound very well.

We have just completed our second stay at the Whitehead B&B. Peggy and Jerry were the most congenial and accommodating yet professional couple it has been our pleasure to meet. The rooms were large and sparkling clean. The breakfast was always superb and very tastefully presented by the white hatted hosts. It was very apparent that the White Hatted Innkeepers took great pride in what they had to offer both in accommodations and service. We will surely utilize the Whitehead B&B again on our next trip through that area.

Having family in the area, we visit Wilson quite often. We have stayed at this Inn about six times a year for the past five years and I cannot say enough glowing things about it. The current owners seem to attract interesting and warm innkeepers and diverse guests. Sometimes I stay at the Inn by myself and always feel "watched out for". The rooms are lovely, and we've never been disappointed. I've actually had to ask them to give me smaller portions of food! If you're still hungry come lunchtime, there is a terrific Portugese Bakery almost across the street. If you're heading North/South on I-95, consider spending a quiet night at the Whitehead Inn!
