Aspecial touch of flavors will awaken your taste buds as you begin to plan your day's adventures — whether that's touring Western North Carolina, hiking or shopping.

Breakfast changes daily at our Smokey Mountain bed and breakfast, but always begins with freshly-ground perked coffees and specially selected teas. There's a variety of fresh juices, too.

You may be served one of these gourmet selections —

Homemade braided French toast topped with macerated strawberries, toasted almond slivers and a dusting of powdered sugar. A generous helping of honey baked ham. And for dessert, Baked Bananas alla Pizzelle.
