You feel welcome and like you've known Sara and Bob forever. The price was reasonable compared to other B&B's in the area. We were sad to hear that this is probably the last year they'll be open. The breakfast was good each day and was a great start to our plans each day.

Sara and Bob are sincere, gracious, and friendly hosts. Our party of 3 arrived hungry after a long day of driving and they found us something to eat right away. My husband enjoyed playing Bob's guitars.
This seasonal B & B is clean, but tired and outdated. There was no shampoo provided and the bath towels were small and thin (I would have retired them to a "rag bag"). Since sleeping room keys are not provided, we loaded up our suitcase and personal care products every morning, took them with us and put them in our cars.
If just a little time was taken to complete things like painting and small repairs, this B & B could get better ratings.
I didn't really mind the train and the highway sounds (like 'white noise')....

Picked it because of reviews but they didn’t provide any sense of reality. 1. it cost a little more than quoted on this website - still cheap compared to other choices in area. 2. train does pass thru nightly - several times & blows horn several times each passing. 3. house is right beside Interstate so we heard cars & big trucks roaring by all night. 4. a box fan was provided to help with noise & lack of air conditioning. We were lucky with an unusually cool visit. A few degrees higher outside with the humidity would have been miserable trying to sleep 5. room & private bath was worn. Bring your own soaps, shampoos, hair dryer, etc. The plastic bathroom cups were not in sealed bags but in sandwich baggies (assume DIY effort by owners) 6. Basic egg & sausage breakfast each day. Grits are way better than hash browns (don't get them). Biscuits don't seem freshly made (maybe those prebaked type you can buy in bulk stores). Only set out the equivalent of 2 pats of butter for a table set for 5. I didn’t think the table was very clean. Used old plastic covered placemats. 7. Sara seems nice... a real talker. Talking seemed to distract her from duties... at breakfast she had to be asked a couple of times by another guest for coffee & she forgot to see what we wanted to eat (we did have a choice of grits or hash browns). We only had one glimpse of her husband when kitchen door was open as we headed out so we can't speak of his personality as other reviewer's did. 8. Water pitcher in a fridge that was free if you wanted a cup but you had to pay for bottled water or other prepackaged snacks. 9. We didn’t spend much time socializing with owners... didn’t really feel compelled to stay in building any longer than necessary. 10. I didn’t recognize any spot around the property that looked like the photo used on this website. 11. Tempted to give 1 star rating but gave 2 stars (okay but below average) because we chose to stay rather than leave.

Came here for a night with hubby. We didn't have very high expectations coming here and was still dumbfounded by the state of the rooms and decor. Our bed tilted to the sides and was two twins put together to make a king. Hence the crack in the middle. House decor jumps out at u as grandma garage sale throwbacks. Although sheets were clean and smelled like fresh laundry, the bed covers should of been thrown away yrs ago. Very dusty, only cool thing was the sweet 8 track player in room. Should of skipped breakfast but the people r friendly which was a plus. But I think its time to retire the decor. Musty no a/c anywhere in house and no ceiling fans. Only box fan in ur bedroom window.

Stayed here for 1 night to see a show. We chose this place because of the proximity to Pisgah Brewing Co & very reasonable rates. It's an old home w/vintage decor, like staying at grandma's house. Bob & Sara were very friendly & welcoming. The room was clean & the beds comfortable. The passing trains did wake us up a couple times during the night, but from talking to other guests it must only be certain rooms where that's an issue. Probably would've slept better but got to bed really late & had to leave fairly early. Breakfast was good & met some great people at our table. We would definitely stay here again, but probably bring earplugs or request a different room. You can't beat the price & location.

Room Tip: Ask for a room where train noise isn't as noticeable.
