Breakfast Is Always Included

Wake up to an amazing breakfast that will keep you going all day.

When we say breakfast included, we don’t mean some toast and a hard boiled egg.  We start every day at the Inn with a three course, fresh prepared meal.

Each morning, wake up to fresh hot coffee (a custom blend of fresh roasted coffee beans from Smoky Mountain Coffee Roasters in Hazelwood) or tea available in the dining room.  Select one of our scratch baked pastries such as pain au chocolat, morning glory muffins, or cinnamon chip scones before enjoying a full hot breakfast prepared fresh each morning by Chef Victor.  You will start with a fresh fruit course, then enjoy a new entrée each morning, such as cornmeal pancakes with pecan butter, banana bread French toast, or a hearty country scramble with home fries, bacon, scrambled eggs, and country gravy.

Treat Yourself To An Amazing Dinner

While there are plenty of great restaurants in the Smoky Mountains, you'll be glad you decided to join us for dinner!

Our goal is to always provide you with such an incredible meal that puts us on (or near) the top of your “favorite foods” list.

Each evening, Victor is cooking up some delicious meals that guests rave about in reviews. Essentially we don’t just want you to thank us for a fantastic room, we want you to love every aspect of your stay – including a dinner that’s fit for royalty.
