Mountain City fireworks

July is around the corner with warmer days but it’s cooler in the mountains. Mountain City fireworks display can be seen from Prospect Hills front porch. Reserve your room and watch the show.

Prospect Hill Bed and Breakfast is one of Mountain City’s hidden gems; a picturesque historical mansion perched on a small hill in the heart of the town.  Built in 1889, the mansion has remained in pristine condition with all the original woodwork and stained glass windows that lend the space a grandeur that is not found in many modern homes.  From the moment you walk in the heavy handcrafted wooden front door into the main foyer, you are enveloped in a calming atmosphere of an timelessly beautiful home.  High ceilings, sweeping archways, and dark wooden floors are accompanied by eclectic antique furniture and fixtures to provide a cozy yet decadent experience.

The mystery of the 6,000 square foot house will bring out your adventurous inner child as you discover the hidden porches, the room with the spiral staircase, or the private courtyard surrounded by a lush garden and outbuildings.

Is this your weekend off?  Spend it being refreshed.

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:

The inn was developed by experienced old-house renovators who enjoyed the challenge of bringing the 1889 mansion into the 21st Century.   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.
