My husband and I wanted to get away for a few nights and set goals for the coming year. My husband promised me that he had found "just the spot." I was skeptical. He reserved the place many months in advance and when the time came I was worried that a bed and breakfast was not a good idea.
However, when we drove up and saw the house...we were stunned! It was more beautiful than we had imagined. The rooms are decorated with such taste and yet so inviting to sit in any chair and relax. The porch has a breathing view of the mountains and a stream below.
I must add that Callie and Dave will become your new best friends. They will invite you to spend time with them or they will give you your privacy. We enjoyed eating breakfast with them every morning! We even went to dinner with them one night to listen to some amazing Blue Grass music at a local restaurant. We felt like we had known them all our life.
We relaxed everyday morning in the hot tub that also overlooked the spectacular view. How can you beat that? I honestly do not think you can find a better place to stay for a weekend retreat or a vacation spot that you will want to return often.
It is very close to several towns that had great places to eat, art or pottery to purchase, coffee shops to sit and talk, great hiking trails, whatever you need for a wonderful trip.
