“Very good B & B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

We spent five nights in this B & B and had a great time. Judy and Larry were very friendly and helpful and we really enjoyed our stay in Greensboro. I totally agree with all the information and impressions that "lindawtraverler" has expressed in her review. During our many weeks that we spent travelling in the USA in the last years we had the very best breakfast in Judy's and Larry's inn. We slept very well and didn't hear any noise from the streets. It was a very pleasant time !!! Thanks for all. We will surely stay at the Troy-Bumpas Inn again, if we come back to Greensboro.

We were visiting our daughter at UNCG and the location could not have been better. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and Judy and Larry's hospitality was exceptional. The breakfasts were fantastic and there were lots of little touches that made the stay soooooo good. Both Judy and Larry were very informative regarding the local area and gave us great advice on places to eat. All in all we dropped right on by booking our three night stay at The Troy Bumpass Inn and we would have no hesitation in recommending it to any other traveller.

It's always an honor to host guests from outside the United States, and we are so pleased you found things to your liking. One of the best parts of being innkeepers is getting to know people and discovering how much alike we are even though we live distances apart. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with others. If future travels bring you back to Greensboro, we look forward to serving you again.

What wonderful inn-keepers!!! Larry and Judy understand the art of customer service! From the moment you step onto their porch till you exit, there is a warmth permeated from the owners that is genuine and a sincere desire to make your stay perfect. It is the small touches that sets this B & B at a higher level. Towel warmers, specified make-up remover cloths, a display of cookies, granola bars, crackers and popcorn are available on the same floor as the guest rooms plus, a refrigerator full of soft drinks and water. Totally convenient. In the morning, coffee is brought upstairs, at a time you request, to start your day, before going to their dining room for a deliciously prepared breakfast. You even get to pick the time you want breakfast served. Wow...that is a true perk. Thanks, Larry and Judy for a lovely stay. We will recommend you to our friends!!

Thank you! We're very glad we helped make your stay in Greensboro enjoyable. Before becoming innkeepers, we visited many inns so we could collect good ideas and approaches to making guests feel welcome and comfortable. It's always rewarding to know when we've hit the mark!

As former B&B owners, we are more than a bit critical. Troy-Bumpas owners Larry and Judy Horn are the perfect hosts in their incredibly beautiful inn. The facility is without a spec of dust anyplace, the furnishings are luxurious and the extra touches are everywhere: two Kleenex boxes in our expansive room, homemade cookies upon arrival, complimentary snacks, popcorn, soft drinks, a dedicated refrigerator, a separate ice machine, a small TV and CD player in each room, and an extensive CD library. A beautifully planted and maintained property begs for guests to find a private spot for a spot of wine. The breakfast was superb, prepared by caring hands! They even found space to store frozen foods we were transporting home. Don't miss Troy-Bumpas Inn!!

Room Tip: Any one of the three rooms are superb, and vary only in size.

We enjoyed three comfortable and pleasant nights at the inn. From reservation to checkout, the process was handled in an efficient and professional manner. We stayed in the Miss Allah room which was comfortable, clean and tastefully furnished. The shower was great. The breakfasts were excellent, and the coffee in the morning was much appreciated. We found the innkeepers, Larry and Judy, to be very helpful and accommodating, without being intrusive. The inn was a pleasant change from the typical hotel or motel. The best recommendation we can give is that we would have no hesitation in staying at the Troy-Bumpass Inn again.

Welcoming and helpful hosts in a beautiful home. The photos actually reflect reality in this case, unlike some places! Beautiful, comfortable, peaceful. And we had a very delicious breakfast. Our only regeat is that we could stay just one night.

Thank you for a wonderful stay. The 2 bedroom suite was perfect for my husband and I, and our daughter. Everything was extremely clean, the beds are marvelous and there is a "stash" of goodies that other B & B rarely offer. The breakfast was really tastey and the inn keepers were very friendly with great conversation. If we are ever in the area for another stay, I know where my head will rest!

We were happy to have guests associated with the nearby UNCG Music Camp, and we're very pleased that you enjoyed your stay. I'm always amazed how much we find in common to talk about with our guests, and how often we also learn from them as we chat during the service of breakfast. We look forward to seeing you again the next time your travels bring you to Greensboro. Thank you!
