It’s your vacation — Do a little, or a lot! . . . Enjoy a relaxing, romantic NC/TN mountain B&B getaway

   Prospect Hill Bed and Breakfast Inn is many things to many guests—a romantic getaway, a place to get married or celebrate, delightful, relaxing lodging for business folks while in Mountain City TN in the far northeast corner of the state. Others like the activities in Boone and Blowing Rock, NC, but don’t like staying “right in the middle of it.”  Guest reviews say our rooms are perfect.

The mountains are waking up while still  “snuggle weather” by the fireplaces in our guest rooms.   Take the time to reconnect and relax.

How it feels to enjoy a B&B guest room

Relax, reconnect. Do ‘whatever.’

Things to To . . . Or Not Do

Sleep well.   Wake up slowly and enjoy a leisurely breakfast–not too gourmet and not too simple–with made from scratch foods and good conversation. Then head out to enjoy a wide range of  activities.
Choose hiking, biking, golf nearby or a car ride to see the beauty of the rural landscape in our corner of the world. Or read a book, give the front porch rocking chairs a whirl or go back to bed.
Enjoy your in-room fireplace (in season) and relaxing modern bath (many with whirlpool tubs). Located minutes north of Boone, NC, in the heart of the Tennessee mountains—a perfectly wonderful vacation getaway bed and breakfast.

Welcome Old House Lovers:

Antique houses are our passion! We enjoy making them work like new ones with the “patina” of an old one. We’re experienced old-house renovators who enjoyed the challenge of bringing the 1889 mansion into the 21st Century. (A close match to mansion styles in the late 1990s! Amazing.)  This house has several kinds of historic stained and colored glass, handmade moldings and site-formed bricks. The “new” (2000) roof matches the metal shingle one from 1889.

After you see the sites, ride the bikes or fish the lake empty, enjoy the front porch rockers with a three-state view. For those who like it new—you’ll enjoy the best of an historic house’s style with none of the old-house inconveniences! Our decorating is eclectic—not fussy. You’ll find clean lines, refined themes and modern fixtures, baths,heat/air,  technology. For those who have an interest, we’d love to tell you HOW we did it, our secrets methods for making smooth walls (without a whole lot of mess or cost) as well as chronicle the many changes we made to our historic home. Guests often find that we can help with thorny projects on their own homes. (Sorry, just advice!)
