The Thistletop Inn, offers good old fashioned Southern hospitality. Fred and Mary-Jane are second to none. Warm friendly folks who really do care about their guests. The accommodations are beautiful and comfortable. The breakfast is out of this world. Can't wait to go back!

Mary Jane and Fred are the most perfect hosts. The room was spectacular, the views beautiful and the food was amazing! Wild turkeys roamed around the grounds the entire time. We cannot wait to go back and catch up with our new friends and relax again. MUST STAY!!!

I stayed at Thistletop Inn for several days and Fred and Mary Jane were outstanding hosts. This is a beautiful, high end bed and breakfast with additional accommodations in a cottage and a studio. The architecture is amazing reclaimed beams, wood and multiple historic elements. There is a spiral staircase from the London underground, doors from Paris and numerous other...
