I stayed here on the advice of a local shopkeeper and was blown away by the inn and the owners. I was met by Susan who suggested the downstairs room (room #2) but was also shown the upstairs room as well. The upstairs room has a bathroom with claw foot tub and shower combo which is no doubt nice after a trip on the Creeper Trail. The detached cabin was being held for early arrivers the next day. The downstairs room was wonderful with a separate bath and dressing area. There was an impressive collection of DVDs in the room along with a large LCD TV in a lovely armoire. The upstairs and downstairs porches with ceiling fans and wicker furniture beckon you to enjoy the sounds of the swallows who reside in the belfry of the nearby Episcopal church.
The owners, Susan and Rick, shared champagne and stories of the people and past of Abingdon and the work that they and the town are doing to preserve and promote the heritage of the town. They are both wonderful people who made me feel at ease and as if I were an old friend stopping by after long while apart. If you are a lover of history, this is the place for you. The inn is a short walk from the Virginia Creeper Trail, the Tavern and Rain restaurants and Wines of Distinction gourmet shop. Ask about the Wolf Hills Brewing Company down the road. They are open for tastings on Tuesdays and Thursdays and are worth a visit as well.
