I had a business trip to the area and only stayed two evenings. The room was clean and comfortable, the view was amazing, the staff was cheerful and the owners were attentive to detail. I enjoyed breakfast immensely. It seems off the beaten path but what a beautiful path! Actually, it isn't that far from Boone and Blowing Rock so you can hit the "big cities" if you tire of the natural beauty of the area. The new meeting room/wedding pavilion wasn't quite finished but I could see that the attention to detail would result in a lovely place to have a wedding or event.
