It was my wife's birthday and she wanted to go the the mountains. So I booked the dates with Beverly and upon arrival all was ready as usual. We stayed 4 days this trip and even took our dog Stanley. One of the nice things about the inn is your pet is always welcome, Beverly just loves animals. The breakfast she prepares has never disappointed. But on our last day she made this unbelievable casserole made with farm fresh eggs, asparagus from her garden and different types of cheese. It was fantastic. I'm not big on casseroles but this was to die for. I know I've said it before but if you are going to the Grandfather mountain area, this is the place you will want to stay.
