The veranda on this stately old farmhouse-turned-inn may be the widest in the Highlands area.

This is a truly marvelous inn tucked away in one of the prettiest towns of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The atmosphere is very cozy and warm, with great attention to detail. Best of all, hosts Donna and Chris Alley are friendly and helpful. - Claire Petsch, America's Wonderful Little Hotels & Inns.
The birdfeeder outside has developed a steady clientele of hummingbirds and sometimes in the evening, Alley plays his classical guitar on the porch for the guests. - The Greenville News
A warm, intimate common area has games and comfortable seating in front of a fireplace, and a pantry filled with snacks is accessible to guests. - Debra Merin, The Tampa Tribune-Times
The Colonial-style home has a two-story porch on three sides and features three suites and three rooms in the main house. The rooms are decorated country elegant with beautiful antiques.
