This B&B sits far off the highway, so it is peaceful and quiet. Innkeepers, Kim and Brent, were very friendly and accommodating - sweet children as well. There are many outdoor spots to relax, such as near the water feature where there were tables if you chose to bring back dinner or lunch; areas near the stables to sit and watch the horses; covered front porch with rockers and wicker chaise; comfy chairs around the outdoor fireplace (ingredients for s'mores provided) which is lit at night as well as torches surrounding the fireplace. Botanical Library had a very comfy bed with lovely, high-end linens, fireplace and incredible selection of books. Lots of DVDs and games available as well. Those looking for pretentious should look elsewhere. But for those that appreciate the charm of a 200+ yr old home, Fallen Tree will provide you with serenity and a comfortable step away from a hectic lifestyle The breakfasts were top notch and elegantly served.
If you are looking for a great side trip, go to Historic Boiling Springs (less than 10 miles) and walk around the Children's Lake or fish in the trout stream and definitely have lunch (seafood bisque is fantastic) at The Boiling Springs Tavern.
