“Simply the finest B&B anywhere”
Reviewed October 28, 2009

We have stayed with Vern and Lisa for several years. They are simply the warmest hosts, and offer the best life has to offer. Everything is immaculate and is well under priced for the amenities, location, views and wonderful meals that you will enjoy. We have a standing reservation and would not consider giving it up to anyone. Usually a waiting list, but they will do everything possible to work you in.

Wonderful in ALL aspects! Superlative! Unending view of over 12 Smoky Mt Peaks! Immaculate Family run Inn with Homemade Full Breakfast Served by the owner on china and Desserts each night. Just outside of Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge, TN so can still go down to partake of the touristy activities there and then return to your blissful peaceful retreat. Long porch with rocking chairs and old-timey swings on each of 3 levels with uninterrupted pastoral views of the mountains. You can even take the views and mt scenes home as the owner is also an artist.You can hike in Smoky Mt National Park less than 30 min from front door. The drive up is a bit of a nailbiter as is one way up (or down) the mountain but well worth it being at such a height! All rooms have King beds and are all decorated differently with antigues. Comfortable full size cots are available, which our 12 year old son used. There is TV and lots of board games but no other activities for children so would not recommend for anyone under 10.
The homemade breads are wonderful and the breakfasts are big and tasty but not for picky eaters.

My husband and I stayed here for the weekend after a business trip to Knoxville. While a little of the beaten path, it was well worth the trip! The views were amazing! The room was huge, very comfortable and clean. The food was terrific (treats every night in addition to the breakfasts). Overall, it was a perfect quiet getaway in the Arts and Crafts Community. A nice change of pace from the crowded traffic filled downtown area. (If you're driving here, I strongly suggest investing in a map or GPS system and finding a route other than directly through Sevierville and Pigeon Forge. The traffic was worse than Chicago in rush hour!) The staff and other guests were also very friendly and gave us lots of helpful tips about the area. We enjoyed it so much, we're considering coming back and bringing our parents.

Room was large with fireplace and Jacuzzi. It opened onto a community deck on the second floor. View of mountains is wonderful. There is a long private drive that winds through the property. Room was clean and well stocked and the library has a large supply of books, videos, etc. The deck was supplied with rockers. The evening dessets were quite good and the breakfast was outstanding. The biggest drawback might be its location. It is relatively close to the art district, but quite a drive over narrow, crooked roads from Gatlinburg and even farther from Pigeon Forge, if they are your primary interest. If the view and pastural surroundings are your goal, then this is a great pick.

My husband and I just returned from our stay at the B & B. This was our first time and we were amazed by the generousity and hospitality of the owners and staff. Our suite was devine with special little touches that only a woman could truely appreciate! Our view was amazing along with the yummy breakfast each morning. We also met some great vacationers, too! I would recommend this B&B over and over and I cannot wait to go back.

We have stayed with Vern several times. The inn is immaculately clean, the service is far above expectations, and the people are very friendly. There is an amazing sense of togetherness with all of the guest who are staying, it is like a big happy family. The homemade nightly goodies are a treat and the morning breakfast is sensational.

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at the Hippensteal Bed and Breakfast Inn in early July 2007.

The Inn's setting is absolutely beautiful, our room was immaculate, the linens were spotless and the staff was warm and friendly. The young ladies who took care of our room did an outstanding job in keeping our room sparkling clean. Jessica was precious and always had a smile!

Vern Hippensteal served our breakfast each morning and could not have been more gracious and hospitable. Both the breakfast/brunch and the evening homemade desserts made by Linda Kay were fabulous! She is such a wonderful hostess that you feel like while you are sitting in the kitchen eating a slice of wonderful Apple Caramel Cake that you are with an ole' friend.

A visit to the Hippensteal Inn will make you leave planning your return trip - but, you best make your reservations early, because this little jewel in Gatlinburg is so beautiful that you will find it stays booked - we actually made our reservations for July 2008 before we left - although we both are hoping we can return before next July!

  • Liked — The Inn was immaculate, the food incredible and the staff delightful!
  • Disliked — Having to leave for dinner....no problem, but would like to have the choice to eat dinner at the Inn.
