We stopped here for but one night as we slowly drove up the Blue Ridge Parkway. It fit the mood perfectly. Here we have a quiet, gentle place that is the antithesis of our usual frenetic lives. The inn is on a quiet street in the older part of Roanoke. When entering the Inn you get the sense that you are steeping into a bygone era where life was so much more genteel. The decore made you feel like you were the guest of a most important person. Our room was the smallest of those available. It was still very large and pleasant. Our arrival was late in the afternoon but Jim and Lynn had us sit down for some tea after we settled into our room. We followed their advise and walked to a local restaurant for a delightful dinner and then slowly walked back to the King George for a wonderful night's sleep. Our breakfast the next morning was sumptuous and well paced. We hated to leave. It was too bad we only had one night to spend here.
