I looked long and hard for a nice B&B near Gatlinburg, as I did not want to be near "The Strip" with all its noise and people. The Foxtrot fit the bill. We loved the food, the room (most comfortable bed ever -- hands down), and the location. I had no problem with the 9 am breakfast around the community table, nor did I have a problem with Bob's history stories about the area. Nor did I have a problem with his blessing at breakfast--even though I don't do this in my own home. I loved that our room had a fridge, which Bob kept stocked with complimentary water and sodas.
My husband did find Bob a little rigid, but I figure this is his home and he can do as he chooses. Once he oriented us to his home, he left us alone.
I found this to be a very classy B&B; my husband prefers a more "laid back" style of B&B. Had I wanted to cram lots of activities in each day, I do think the 9 am breakfast would have hindered that. But, we were there to chill out, and it was perfect for the "do nothing" type of vacation.
The B&B is 3,300 feet up the side of a mountain. And the view is spectacular. The winding road up to the B&B was fun to drive -- but not if you suffer from vertigo! Our GPS had no problem finding the Foxtrot.
I would have loved it if Bob had told a 5-minute story at breakfast, then left the guests alone to chat with each other. The large, decorative centerpiece at the dining room table prohibited us from talking to the couple at the end. I think they felt a little left out.
I would go back in a heartbeat. My husband probably wouldn't. I like elegant, he likes rustic.
