My wife and I stayed here over the holidays for a couple nights to get away and do a little hiking. We loved the property and the owner Vikki. The night we drove in snow was coming down and by the next morning had covered the ground and the trail we were going to hike up. As for the hiking, it was difficult; we took a side trail that went straight up the face of the mountain (in snow) and connected to the Appalachian Trail at the top. The trail had snow drifts upwards of 3 feet. As for the B&B, it was really nice. Our room, the Appalachian, was very nice with a balcony and the bed was super comfortable. As for the breakfast, Vikki made a mean omelet for me as well as waffles and bacon. She was also very accommodating to my Wife's gluten free diet. More over, Vikki came and picked us up after our hike 12 miles away from the property as we were exhausted to say the least, and frozen/wet. Overall, I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone wanting to stay in N. Tenn. Roll Tide!
