Description

Circa 1889. This three-story shingle-style Victorian manor garners a great deal of attention from passersby with its appealing architecture and commanding hilltop location. Romantic rooms offer tall arched windows, 11-foot ceilings and spectacular views. Fashioned from handmade bricks, it was once home to Major Joseph Wagner, who, like many of his neighbors in far northeastern Tennessee, served on the Union side. The restored home features five guest rooms. A 1910 oak Craftsman dining set complements the oak Stickley furniture (circa 1997) that decorates the living room. Fireplaces, whirlpools and stained glass add luxury to the guest rooms. Prospect Hill boasts views of the Appalachian and Blue Ridge Mountains. From the front window, guests can see three states: Tennessee, Virginia and North Carolina. The inn is within an hour of the Blue Ridge Parkway, Appalachian Trail and Roan and Grandfather mountains, the Virginia Creeper Trail and 25 minutes from Boone, NC.

Overnight French Toast Using Bagels

This is a different sort of French toast--a bit chewy and so good you don\'t really need syrup. Placed cut side up and touching they will puff and form florettes.


Double Chocolate Muffins

We are house renovators. We start with the basic recipe for renovation--and work our magic on old houses. We cook the same way. With this recipe we took a basic muffin recipe and worked with it until this chocolate lover found heaven.


Southern Pound Cake

This recipe hails from North Georgia. It\'s firm, tasty and loves the addition of toppings and/or \"stir ins.\"

Unwelcome??

This inn is beautful and full of history. The inn was comfortable, clean and the breakfast delicious. Staying here again would be a test for me as I did not find the innkeepers very pleasant. They do provide extras etc. but they have a way of making you feel slightly unwelcome. Maybe I caught them on a bad day, however it made the stay a little uncomfortable and I was almost relieved to check out.

We're Back AGain

Such a marvelous stay at Prospect Hill B&B. We love the combination of historical renovation and modern comfort found in this beautiful home. This is our second visit, and we always look forward to the delicious breakfasts. Thanks for sharing your recipes! Thanks, too, for your hospitality. We'll be back.

Trip Truly Perfect

Kelly and I had been looking for a romantic vacation getaway and stumbled upon Prospect Hill. We thought it was perfect. Having never been to a B&B, we didn't know quite what to expect. But with such a serene environment surrounding us in "the romance room" we were eager to arrive. our room was so cozy and romantic, the view was breath taking, and Judy and Robert were such kind and generous hosts. This trip was truly perfect!

A Fabulous Stay!

My husband and I and two of our friends decided to take a motorcycle trip and ride on Route 421 “The Snake” instead of staying in an average hotel or motel we decided to make it a unique experience, after all, it was my anniversary weekend. Judy and Robert were wonderful, they emailed us some maps with for good riding and when we got there they gave us another map and pinpointed all the cool places to visit. They made our stay great, and we felt very welcomed and had plenty of space. The house is absolutely gorgeous, the bed was comfortable and I truly enjoyed the Jacuzzi tub, especially after a long day of riding. Breakfast was remarkable with homemade pancakes and syrup – my mouth waters just thinking about it. I would definitely recommend staying at Prospect Inn and if we ever make it back to Mountain City, TN we will definitely visit again.

Romantic with a view

Even though it's "in town", Prospect Hill sits on a hillside with gorgeous mountain views in all directions. We loved our romance room. The towels were fluffy, the whirlpool tub and rainshower were so relaxing and enjoyable and the bedding was crisp and fresh. I'm a tea drinker and really appreciated the good selection of high quality tea at breakfast. The innkeepers were very helpful with directions and ideas for daytime activities.

Thanks for Terrific Accommodations

While on our fall trip, we stayed at 3 B&Bs and one cabin. Your B&B was by far the greatest of all. :-) Innkeepers Judy and Robert were by far the most easy going and comfortable B&B owners me met during this trip. I love how involved the are in their community. We've been thinking about how and when we can get back to Mountain City.

Absolutely perfect wedding!

Absolutely Perfect Wedding We chose Prospect Inn for our elopement wedding, which included a two night stay. Everything was absolutely perfect! Judy and Robert made us feel at home the moment we arrived and paid attention to every detail. We would recommend to anyone considering an elopement wedding. We hope to visit in the future for anniversaries! Marissa D.

Wonderful Home

The most wonderful thing I'll always remember about our stay is, by far, the wonderful home we came back to each night.
