It is rare to find a B&B where you are welcome with kids. But the Inn at Mountain Quest could not have been more welcoming to our family with our 5 and 3 year old boys in tow. The location is wonderful. Though located in the National Radio Quiet Zone, which does not allow for cell coverage, we found this to be a positive. More conversation and less staring at screens.
Of course a B&B is only as good as its hosts, and Alex and David are terrific. Alex met us upon arrival and gave us a personal tour of the grounds, including the massive library, game room and dining room. In the morning, David had our kids help with morning farm chores. Their story is inspiring and convinced me to buy one of their published books to read at home.
Great for families with kids. There was plenty to keep our little ones occupied.
Great hosts that will really invite conversation and discussion.
The accommodations were all of the highest caliber.
The library. As other reviews have stated, it is better than most small town libraries.
No cell service, if this is vitally important to you. Personally I enjoyed not having it (and I use my smartphone a LOT)
