Staff is warm, welcoming, knowledgeable about the area and attractions. My husband and I have stayed here twice for Parents' Weekend at Western Carolina. Hotels are hard to come by~so come here instead! Bed and Breakfast Inn, cozy, decor is very 50's-fun, interesting, and a little bit campy. Bedrooms are clean, uniquely furnished, comfy. Bathrooms are clean-very 50's style in terms of hardware-water pressure is fabulous in the showers. Dining~fabulous. We've had beef tips, chicken marsala, steak-prices are really, really reasonable, and the food is excellent. Breakfast is fun-everyone meets in the soda shoppe or on the rocking chair porch. Breakfast is made to order and worth the wait. This is about ten miles from campus and the best deal you will find. Enjoy!
