My husband and I recently stayed at Hippensteal's for a long weekend. What a treat! The place is beautiful, the rooms perfectly appointed. When Kendall introduced herself as our innkeeper for the first night, we knew we would love the place. The bathroom supplied all our needs, including a hair dryer, a makeup mirror, soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, etc. The...

I am afraid that by typing this review I will let the world know of this beautiful and relaxing little secret place we found in the Mountains of TN. We are newlyweds and went here as kind of a second mini honeymoon. We were so impressed by everything, from the service, to the art, the property itself and let me...

My husband and I were gifted a stay at the Hippensteal. What a wonderful place to stay. Away from the frantic pace of downtown Gatlinburg and hidden away on top of a mountain with the most gorgeous views, this inn is the perfect place to rest and relax. The rocking chairs and swings on the porches are so inviting. My...

The Inn typically requires a two night stay, but as we were passing through, I asked about a single night and they accommodated us. Very nice people, very good breakfast. There is also some really nice art all around the place painted by the owner Vern Hippensteal, and some others. The drive in can be steep in some spots, but...

My husband and I stay at Hippensteal's every time we get to Gatlinburg. Luxurious rooms all have mountain views, grand porches with rocking chairs, scrumptious breakfast served to us each morning and a wonderful dessert each evening. The owners and staff are so friendly and professional. Top notch operation. Can hardly wait to get back for another visit!

Absolutely one of the most beautiful locations in the smoky mountains only matched by the warm hospitality and amazing breakfasts! You know you are headed someplace special as the long and winding road takes you up the mountain with welcoming signs helping direct you to the Inn. The huge front porch and balconies overlook an incredible view of Mount Laconte...

We come in the spring and in the fall. We love the view, the rooms, the porches overlooking the mountains, the delicious breakfasts, but most of all the friendly staff. Of course, Vern and Lisa, the owners are the best. You always feel right at home here. The kitchen is open to all with yummy cookies and desserts and the...

This B & B is far off the beaten path up a winding mountain road (drive slowly) and sits on top of a substantial mountain overlooking the Smokies. Vern Hippensteal displays his beautiful artwork throughout the property and also serves the breakfast (he is an extremely friendly guy). The other reviews capture how wonderful this Inn is. The mountain views...

Hippensteal was recommended by my in-laws who frequent there 2-3 times a year. This was my husband and I's first Bed and Breakfast experience. The views from the Inn were spectacular! We are avid hikers, so were pleased being close to trails. We did McLeconte, which was a 11 miles hike total. It was a foggy day, but the accomplishment...

“Corner rooms offer more view and have a double swing chair on the balcony.”
  • The long balcony you share with neighboring rooms.
  • The view I woke up to drew me right out to the balcony.
