Positives: Quaint, unique, and cozy; staff and owner are friendly and very responsive; great breakfast; very close to Pilot Mountain; would stay there again because these positives were strong enough to outweigh the main negative which was that the place could use some TLC; don’t go expecting perfection - Examples: Boats that are available for use are in poor condition (e.g., water came into both jon boats we tried using) and all but one life jacket was literally ripped apart so the pond experience was very disappointing compared to how it was advertised on website; while clean overall, some little things could really use some investment/refreshing such as the local things to do binder was dirty and the pages were ripped; sofa had a rip; bed squeaky and uncomfortable
My boyfriend and I recently traveled to the Pilot Knob Inn for a quick overnight getaway. We were interested in relaxing and getting in a little hiking and sightseeing. The checkin process was incredibly easy and contactless (which is lovely in the time of COVID). There were clear instructions on how to get to our room. When we arrived the room was gorgeous and in pristine condition. We stayed in the Castle Room - the pictures don't do it justice! The room is beautiful, the woodwork is amazing, and the amenities (private sauna and jacuzzi) were perfect after a long day of traveling and hiking. In the evening we took a short stroll down to the lake and did a bit of fishing. What a beautiful view! So serene. After dinner, we made our way back down to the lake and did some stargazing (even managed to catch a spot a few shooting stars). We were also able to get a quick early morning hike in at Pilot Knob Mountain (it's about five to ten minutes away by car) before breakfast at the Inn. Kathy made a delicious breakfast and Jennifer made sure we were taken care of. All in all, I couldn't recommend the Pilot Knob Inn more enthusiastically. We hope to come back again soon!…
We love visiting the Pilot Knob Inn. It is so relaxing and so quiet.. This time, we enjoyed relaxing in the lovely rocking chairs on the deck of the Castle Room. Absolutely so relaxing to sit out there and enjoy the cool weather! The bed was so comfortable, and we really enjoyed the sauna!
We took a quick weekend getaway trip for our anniversary. How refreshing it was to have the privacy of a cabin in the woods with the advantages of a bed and breakfast...whirlpool tub and a complete breakfast cooked and served with care! If you are like us and your style is more rustic than formal, you will enjoy this place. Thank you for the warm welcome and hospitality. We will be back!
My wife and I love Pilot Knob Inn. We will be going back for the 5th time to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. This is the only place we trust with Covid going around. The cleaning crew is very thorough and everything is spotless when we arrive. We enjoy this place so much we've made it a goal to stay in every cabin at least once. Next stop will be the Southwest Honeymoon Suite for an entire week.
