The Garden Inn Bed & Breakfast at Bee Rock
A quiet and refined place to stay in the heart of a natural wonderland.
This B&B looks like a large, posh, residential home in a posh rural neighborhood. It sits on 15 acres filled with hiking trails, stone bridges, caves and bluffs. The views are outstanding, looking across to the mountains and down on Calfkiller Valley and Stamps Hollow. With its lovely outdoor spaces, the property is popular with wedding parties, business groups and church groups. It's best to book well in advance for spring stays and for fall when the leaves are changing. The choice of beds alone is impressive. You can rest your weary head in a four-poster rice bed, cherry pencil-post bed or dark cherry spool bed, among many. The overall tone of the rooms is tastefully old-fashioned, with thoughtfully selected and arranged décor. Some rooms have gas fireplaces or whirlpool tubs. One whirlpool tub sits beneath a stained glass skylight. Each morning a complimentary breakfast with homemade breads and pastries is served in the breakfast room (which has individual tables) or on the main deck. Rates also include evening dessert. An upper deck offers spectacular mountain views.
