This is a 107-year-old former Lutheran Boy's School converted to a B&B. There is much history to the location. The house is beautiful, well kept and we were well-fed. The friendly atmosphere was the seller, besides the beauty of the surrounding mountains. Deer play just out of reach and the stillness would rival the "Stillness at Appomattox." Even the other guests were very friendly.
Not far away is the Barter Theater in Abingdon. It was the career birthing of such greats as Ernest Borgnine and Patricia Neal. There are many fine restaurants in the area and Ron and Phyllis will direct you to the right ones.
You can eat breakfast at the B&B, lunch in North Carolina and dinner in Tennessee. It is well worth the ride up the mountain. Highly recommended. We will be going back for seconds.
