We are history buffs that came to participate in an 1814 re-enactment at the historic Cragfont Mansion. The Avery Trail went from Knoxville to Nashville with many stops in between but the next stop east was the Cragfont Mansion in Castillian Springs on Bledsoe Creek. This a huge log cabin added on numerous times, is maybe the largest in Tennessee dating to 1857. Breakfast was served on a long elegant English dining table with ten chairs around. Her servings are huge, Southern cooking with grits and biscuits. We ordered supper one night. Roberta Hancock is a good cook. We left a valuable belt for my regalia and she called and is mailing it to me. The belt is irreplaceable.

This was my first experience staying at a B&B. The hosts Roberta and Carl are very welcoming and treat you like family. The place is old, welcoming and full of antiques, which gives it its charm but it could use some updating maintenance wise. The daily breakfasts are amazing. They offer a variety of things from fresh fruit, homemade biscuits with warm cinnamon peaches to put over the top, eggs, sausage, crispy bacon, grits, hash browns, pancakes and french toast. The only negative is that it sits on a main highway and is close to the road and you hear traffic at all hours (fully disclosed by the owners before booking) so if you're a light sleeper you may want to request a room in the back. Overall it was nice experience and you could not ask for friendlier, more accommodating hosts!

This is my second stay at the Hancock House. The proprietors, Roberta and Carl, are the nicest hosts with some very funny stories to tall after a fabulous country style breakfast. I grew up just five mile "down the road" from the Hancock house and felt like I was back home again. My wife dearly love the bedroom and the furnishings. It made our 3-day stay for my great nieces wedding a true Southern event. If you don't stay here, you are truly missing a great "Southern" experience!

The B&B was what you stay at these places for. Four poster beds, creaky floors, a since of age. This place had one the best breakfast I have ever had. Fresh fruit, bacon , sausage , eggs, hash browns, grits, sausage gravy, biscuits that melted in your mouth and cooked cinnamon sugar peaches to die for. That is the good. Here is the not so good. If you are looking for a peaceful, tranquil room this not your cup of tea. The B&B is located on highway 31E and traffic can be heard through the night. The owners of the B&B are kind gracious people. It appears that some of the upkeep and repairs on the rooms could be better. Because a structure is old does not mean it should not be kept up
