    The Sourwood Inn is perhaps the most relaxing place we have ever stayed. It is nestled in the forest on the side of a mountain. The inn is ostentatiously lovely; lots of wood in a simple Craftsman style that doesn't shout out its elegance. At...More

    Hi and thank you for your interest in Sourwood. We only allow children 12 and older, either in the inn or in the Sassafras Cabin. I am not sure how old your children are, but a call might be in order.
