We stayed at the Historic Eureka Inn while in Jonesborough for a family wedding. We greatly enjoyed the property, and had many places to gather as a family to socialize. One highlight was the front porch with the rocking chairs! We spent hours there watching the world go by. The hotel is also convenient to everything in downtown Jonesborough, and...

My wife and I just spent an absolutely wonderful weekend at the Historic Eureka Inn, a quaint, beautiful bed and breakfast in the middle of an amazing historic district in Jonesborough, Tenn. Blake and Katelyn Yarbrough are wonderful people/cooks/innkeepers who make you feel at home from the time you make your reservations until you unfortunately have to leave. The townspeople...

Katelyn and Blake were so accommodating. Enjoyed my stay and will return to the quaint town of Jonesborough! I enjoyed the breakfast provided it was a fresh attitude in such an historic area. Would like to return in the fall.

Blake and Katelyn are very hospitable innkeepers! 24/7 complimentary kuerig/tea. Nice amenities and a homemade breakfast w a good menu and at the time you prefer. Convenient location and such a neat place. Close enough for a day trip to Asheville, NC as well

Good luck trying to even make a reservation. I called and had to leave a message, trying to check availability and pricing. When I wasn't called back by the next day, I called again and had to leave another message. This time my call was returned and I spoke with the Innkeeper. It sounded like he didn't have any guests...

Good Afternoon Christine, I am very sorry that we have missed the opportunity to have you and your husband stay at the Inn. Blake and I do try to answer every phone call that we receive, but sometimes we don't have the luxury of doing so (especially on the weekends). We certainly are very passionate about our business and our...

We visited with our 2 grandsons ( ages 9 and 11) and all of us enjoyed this 200+ year -old inn. It is beautifully furnished with antiques, yet comfortable, too. The innkeepers, Blake and Kaitlyn, did everything possible to make our stay memorable, including getting us tickets to the performance next door. Breakfast was delicious.

We went with 6 girls and stayed in the Jury room. Words cannot describe how adorable and quaint this B&B is! I felt like I was on the set of Pride & Prejudice. The staff was very nice and accommodating. Breakfast was delicious and flexible for times and orders. We had a very relaxing stay and hope to make it...

We are so excited and pleased that you enjoyed your stay in our Jury Room! It's as if walls could talk! The furnishings and décor DO transport you straight into Jane Austen's imagination! You'll have to come back and visit when the JRT does Sense and Sensibility in May. Thank you for your exciting review, we'll hopefully see you soon!...

Mountain towns are my favorite places to visit. Ones that celebrate their culture and heritage in fun ways are even better. Throw in some rockin’ good food and a waterfall nearby, and I’m in heaven. Jonesborough, Tennessee, in the shadow of the Appalachian Mountains, is one of these mountain towns. On a trip south late spring, we ducked off I81...

The Inn is so very beautiful with the most elegant Christmas decor at this time of year! It's extremely well kept, very very clean. We stayed in the Maxwell Room on the second floor overlooking the front porch with all it's rocking chairs, and gorgeous views of downtown. Katelyn and Blake were amazing.

Very beautiful building, comfortable bed. And that's about it, really. Breakfast wasn't great, kinda roadfood style, but ok. Very friendly staff, trying his best - there was only one of them - being the receptionist, and the breakfast chef - we were the only ones in the whole hotel, I guess it's a quiet period for them. We loved Jonesborough,...
