I stayed at the Maxwell Manor for three nights in August of 2008 while attending the NASCAR race at Bristol Motor Speedway. The owner and her husband were delightful and incredibly warm and hospitable. They are both from the area and know everything about Abingdon and the surrounding area. The Inn is an old historic place with a great deal of character and history and it is out in the country but only a few miles from historic Abingdon, VA. The front porch is where I spent most of my time reading and in fact I changed my plans to stay at the Inn rather than go to the early race activities. Quiet, cozy and friendly and warm owners.
