We stayed here before and LOVED it then! This time it was even better. Paula's breakfasts are wonderful. We LOVE the river flowing below the deck, which is just off the rooms. Not only that, they have a wonderful horse which I LOVED to pet. This is the best place to stay because you can enjoy a lovely country setting...

When my wife was planning a Father's Day getaway for the two of us, I knew I was in for a treat, but was not quite prepared for the amazing setting of the River Garden.

From the moment we arrived, we felt like family. This B&B is situated right along the Holston river. The sights are breathtaking. Paula, the hostess, made us feel like we had been close friends forever. She cooked scrumpious breakfasts including blueberry pancakes using the blueberries picked right on the property. She also made special desserts for us during our stay....

The hosts was very friendly. The food was pretty good. We were a little surprised to find out there were inside pets. Both of us are not pet friendly when it comes to inside animals.

We were very sorry to hear of this review. We take every effort to make our guests feel comfortable here. Our website does state that there are friendly dogs on property and as we greet every guest we do offer to put the dogs up if the guests are at all uncomfortable around them.
