Some inns are grand and imposing, with dozens of rooms and guests constantly coming and going. Others offer a more intimate, personal experience – which is just what you’ll find at Prospect Hill Inn, a charming bed and breakfast for sale in the northeast corner of Tennessee. This little inn is awash in history and personality, and is just waiting for the right owner.
Originally built in 1889 as a country mansion for a Civil War veteran, Prospect Hill Inn is a showcase of Victorian style without the Victorian stuffiness. The inn features five well-equipped guest rooms, and there is also a standalone rental cottage a few miles away. Each guest room has a fireplace, cable TV, and wireless internet, while the “romance rooms” also feature whirlpool tubs for two. The rooms themselves are individually decorated and show a lot of character. One room spans two floors and has a private staircase, another has a private porch entrance, and all are decorated in their own color scheme, complemented by elegant antique furniture.
The inn sits on three acres of property in Tennessee’s Iron Mountains, located at the tip of the northeast corner of the state. This area is just as rich in history as the inn itself. Native Americans populated the region for centuries before European explorers moved in and the nearby town of Mountain City was first settled in the 1700s. There are a number of museums and historical sites in the region, including The Butler Museum, which details the history of Johnson County and the flooded town of Butler.
However, perhaps the best thing about Prospect Hill Inn is its proximity to some of the best outdoor recreation in the area. The Appalachian Trail runs through the county, as does “The Snake” — a famous driving road with nearly 500 curves and corners. There are several mountains and parks with hiking and biking trails, as well as swimming holes, water sports and other outdoor fun. If your ideal guest enjoys the outdoors, they’ll love it here.
Another big draw to the area is the nearby Bristol Motor Speedway, one of the most iconic and popular tracks on the NASCAR circuit. Known for its short length, steep banking, and exceptional loudness, Bristol Motor Speedway draws tens of thousands of fans to the area every race weekend. And with Prospect Hill Inn positioned less than 40 miles away, one thing is for sure – you’ll never lack for customers during NASCAR season.
There are too many other nearby attractions to list them all, but they include several fine dining establishments, a winery, and Tennessee’s only national forest. Guests of Prospect Hill Inn will find themselves with more options for entertainment than they could hope to choose from. Or they might just enjoy the inn’s quiet, cozy atmosphere and private rooms.
