We wanted to bike the VA creeper trail and I picked this inn because of it's stellar reviews. I figured it would be very nice, but it truly was better than I expected. The innkeepers work hard to make you feel comfortable and welcome and 'at home'. It's located in the historic part of the lovely town of Abingdon and we never had to drive anywhere. We could walk to great restaurants (the Tavern is outstanding), the theatre, start of the trail, etc. Breakfast was gourmet and yet informal. Hors doerves and wine excellent. Betty and Kim were welcoming and generous with their time and recommendations, even calling ahead to restaurants to make sure we were treated especially well. It's not often that I can recommend an inn wholeheartedly, but this one is exceptional.
